Tzimol, a Campanian marine paleontological site of the Angostura Formation near Comitán, Chiapas, southeastern Mexico
Abstract This manuscript reports the discovery of Tzimol. This is a new paleontological site of Campanian age belonging to the Angostura Formation that is quarried with commercial purposes by local
Maaqwi cascadensis: A large, marine diving bird (Avialae: Ornithurae) from the Upper Cretaceous of British Columbia, Canada
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis suggests that Maaqwi cascadensis represents a derived crown or near-crown member of Ornithurae, and specifically suggests affinities with Vegaviidae, a third clade of bird that evolved to exploit marine habitats in the Late Cretaceous.
A small azhdarchoid pterosaur from the latest Cretaceous, the age of flying giants
TLDR
The first pterosaur from the Campanian Northumberland Formation (Nanaimo Group) of Hornby Island, British Columbia, is represented here by a humerus, dorsal vertebrae, and other fragments, an identification consistent with dominance of this group in the latest Cretaceous.
A Late Cretaceous Lonchodectid?
TLDR
Christened Parirau ataroa, this taxon is found to be a lonchodectid, which alongside the North American Navajodactylus boerei extends this clade into the world’s youngest pterosaur faunas.
Isolated teeth of Anhangueria (Pterosauria: Pterodactyloidea) from the Lower Cretaceous of Lightning Ridge, New South Wales, Australia
The fossil record of Australian pterosaurs is sparse, consisting of only a small number of isolated and fragmentary remains from the Cretaceous of Queensland, Western Australia and Victoria. Here, we
Isolated teeth of Anhangueria (Pterosauria: Pterodactyloidea) from the Lower Cretaceous of Lightning Ridge, New South Wales, Australia
TLDR
The morphology of the teeth and their presence in the estuarine- and lacustrine-influenced Griman Creek Formation is likely indicative of similar life habits of the tooth bearer to other members of the pterodactyloid clade Anhangueria.

The smallest recorded specimen of Xiphactinus audax from the Niobrara Chalk of Kansas and its implications for juvenile ichthyodectid ecology
ABSTRACT Juvenile specimens of Xiphactinus audax are rarely preserved in the fossil record and are typically represented by disarticulated cranial elements. Here we report the smallest specimen of
