Middle Miocene vertebrates from the Amazonian Madre de Dios Subandean Zone, Perú
A new middle Miocene vertebrate fauna from Peruvian Amazonia is described. It yields the marsupials Sipalocyon sp. (Hathliacynidae) and Marmosa (Micoureus) cf. laventica (Didelphidae), as well as anExpand
Fossil and subfossil herpetofauna from Cadet 2 Cave (Marie-Galante, Guadeloupe Islands, F. W. I.): Evolution of an insular herpetofauna since the Late Pleistocene
TLDR
The first metric data for fossil Marie-Galante anoles show clear size stability throughout time, pointing to the long-term stability of the fauna before human colonization and subsequently to the marked impact of human-caused environmental disturbances during colonial but also Pre-Columbian periods. Expand
A New Teiid Lizard of the Genus Callopistes Gravenhorst, 1838 (Squamata, Teiidae), from the Lower Miocene of Argentina
ABSTRACT Although squamates are commonly found in Cenozoic South American deposits, most findings correspond to fragmentary cranial materials or isolated vertebrae. Among the known South AmericanExpand
Redescription of the Extinct Species Callopistes bicuspidatus Chani, 1976 (Squamata, Teiidae)
TLDR
The paleoenvironmental conditions inferred from the accompanying vertebrate fauna for the late Miocene–early Pliocene of the fossil locality indicate that C. bicuspidatus exploited different environmental conditions than the extant species of the genus, especially regarding humidity and water availability. Expand
A Pliocene–Pleistocene continental biota from Venezuela
TLDR
The hypothesis that range contraction of many taxa to their current distribution in northern South America occurred rapidly during at least the last 1.5 million years is supported. Expand
Evolution, diversity and interactions with past human populations of recently extinct Pholidoscelis lizards (Squamata: Teiidae) from the Guadeloupe Islands (French West-Indies)
TLDR
It is demonstrated how subfossil bone remains from Pleistocene and Holocene deposits can help to reconstruct the history of recently extinct taxa through the example of Pholidoscelis lizards from the Guadeloupe Islands in the French West Indies. Expand
Early to Middle Miocene Turtles from the Northernmost Tip of South America: Giant Testudinids, Chelids, and Podocnemidids from the Castilletes Formation, Colombia
Abstract. Here we describe the northernmost South American record of fossil turtles from the late early Miocene to early middle Miocene of the Castilletes Formation, on the Alta Guajira Peninsula,Expand
Maioricalacerta rafelinensis, gen. et sp. nov. (Squamata, Lacertidae), from the Early Pliocene of Mallorca (Balearic Islands, Western Mediterranean Sea)
TLDR
The dentition observed in Maioricalacerta suggests that the diet of the species was related to a consumption of hard prey, perhaps molluscs, and it constitutes an evolutionary biomechanical advantage to consume this kind of prey as it improves jaw-closing force. Expand
FIRST LIZARD REMAINS (TEIIDAE) FROM THE MIOCENE OF BRAZIL (SOLIMÕES FORMATION)
The South American Teiidae fossil record is restricted to the Cenozoic, and the most conspicuous remains were found in Early to Late Miocene of Argentina and Middle Miocene of Colombia and Peru, allExpand
Evolution of Neotropical biodiversity : phylogeny, ecology, and biogeography of Mesoeucrocodylia (Vertebrata Crocodyliformes) from the Miocene of Peruvian Amazonia
Under the influential role of the Andean range, western Amazonia developed distinctive environmental conditions that ultimately led to divergent, higher biodiversity within the Neotropics. AlthoughExpand

The Earliest Tupinambis Teiid from South America and Its Palaeoenvironmental Significance
TLDR
F fragmentary dentaries and maxillae from this site are identified as belonging to the genus Tupinambis, the earliest record of this extant teiid genus, and its occurrence in the early Miocene of Patagonia indicates warmer and more humid climatic conditions than today. Expand
Amber from western Amazonia reveals Neotropical diversity during the middle Miocene
TLDR
This unique fossil assemblage, recovered from middle Miocene deposits of northeastern Peru, greatly increases the known diversity of Cenozoic tropical–equatorial arthropods and microorganisms and provides insights into the biogeography and evolutionary history of modern Neotropical biota. Expand

Late Miocene Tidal Deposits in the Amazonian Foreland Basin
TLDR
Late Miocene tidal sediments of Acre, Brazilian Amazonia, were deposited in an embayment or interior seaway located in the sub-Andean zone and give insight into the formation of several observed biogeographic patterns, especially of aquatic biota. Expand
