A Review of the Fossil Record of New World Turtles of the Clade Pan-Trionychidae
Turtles of the clade Pan-Trionychidae have a rich, but fragmentary fossil record in the New World, ranging from the Late Cretaceous to the Holocene, but the placement of most fossil taxa remains poorly resolved relative to these two primary clades.
Misunderstood Marine Reptiles: Late Nineteenth-Century Artistic Reconstructions of Prehistoric Marine Life
Various late nineteenth and early twentieth-century publications contained discussions and images of extinct marine reptiles, some of which were quite accurate in the context of contemporary scientific knowledge while others were not.
On the occurrence of Gillicus arcuatus (Cope, 1875) (Pisces, Ichthyodectiformes) in Mexico
This work provides the description of the first specimen of the species Gillicus arcuatus (Cope, 1875) collected in Mexico. This ichthyodectiform fossil was collected in a marl flagstone quarry on

Abstract The Lower Ferron Sandstone Member of the Mancos Shale in southeastern Utah preserves a chondrichthyan assemblage of at least 13 taxa that include: Hybodus sp., Ptychodus cf. P. mammillaris
Redescription of the Holotype of Platecarpus tympaniticus Cope, 1869 (Mosasauridae: Plioplatecarpinae), and its Implications for the Alpha Taxonomy of the Genus
Re-characterization of the holotype reveals the following similarities to Platecarpus ictericus: exoccipitals-basioccipital suture transversely oriented in condylar view; basal tubera not inflated and widely separated along ventral midline; cervical intervertebral joint surface strongly curved; seventh cervical vertebra lacking articulating intercentrum.
Abstract Fossiliferous deposits of the Greenhorn Limestone (Upper Cretaceous) are found on the Comanche National Grassland in southeastern Colorado. The lowest portion of the Greenhorn Limestone, the
Family-group names of fossil fishes
The main goal of the list is to contribute to the usage of the correct family-group names for fossil fishes with a uniform spelling and to list the author(s) and date of those names.
Scattered and Shattered: A Brief History of the Early Methods of Digging, Preserving and Transporting Kansas Fossils
The fossilized remains of prehistoric creatures are often difficult to remove from the rock that encloses them, and the bones are generally fragile once removed. In most cases, larger specimens need
