Abstract Lowermost Cretaceous (Berriasian) strata of the Skyttegård Member (Rabekke Formation, Nyker Group) on the island of Bornholm, Denmark, have yielded a diverse terrestrial micro-vertebrate fauna. The assemblage is unique in several aspects, including e.g. the first Mesozoic mammal from Scandinavia. Here, we describe the mammal fossil, identified as a multituberculate upper premolar. The tooth is tentatively assigned to the monospecific genus Sunnyodon, as it shares the largest number of… Expand
Amphibians and small reptiles from the Berriasian Rabekke Formation on Bornholm, Denmark
The amphibian and reptilian (excluding Archosauria and Chelonia) part of the assemblage including indeterminate salamanders, frogs and lizards are described, which represent the first occurrence of Mesozoic amphibians in Denmark. Expand

Theropod dinosaur teeth from the lowermost Cretaceous Rabekke Formation on Bornholm, Denmark
The dinosaur fauna of the palynologically dated lower Berriasian Skyttegard Member of the Rabekke Formation on the Baltic island of Bornholm, Denmark, is represented by isolated tooth crowns. TheExpand
New theropod, thyreophoran, and small sauropod tracks from the Middle Jurassic Bagå Formation, Bornholm, Denmark
Three new dinosaur tracks are described from the Middle Jurassic Bagå Formation of Bornholm, Denmark. The tracks are all preserved as natural casts on the underside of fluvial sandstone blocksExpand
An insect boring in an Early Cretaceous wood from Bornholm, Denmark
Abstract An insect boring of unique shape is described from a lignitic layer within the Early Cretaceous (Berriasian) Skyttegård Member of the Rabekke Formation on Bornholm. Morphologically it cannotExpand
First multituberculate mammals from the Lower Cretaceous of Germany
The new taxon is similar to other eobaatarids by its small single-rooted p2, double-routed p3, p4 with a single distolabial cusp, and mesio–distally asymmetric lower molars. Expand
An introduction to the Mesozoic biotas of Scandinavia and its Arctic territories
Abstract The Mesozoic biotas of Scandinavia have been studied for nearly two centuries. However, the last 15 years have witnessed an explosive advance in research, most notably on the richlyExpand

Dinosaur footprints from the Middle Jurassic Bagå Formation, Bornholm, Denmark
Dinosaur footprints have been found preserved on sandstone blocks discarded from the floodedclay pit Pyritsoen, south of Hasle, Bornholm. The sandstone belongs to the Middle Jurassic BagaFormation,Expand


Jurassic and Early Cretaceous selachians - focus on southern Scandinavia
The Jurassic and Early Cretaceous selachian faunas of Scania (Skane), southern Sweden and the island of Bornholm (Denmark) have been investigated. Three Early Jurassic shark tooth assemblages haveExpand
New dinosaurs from Denmark
Abstract Only the Baltic island of Bornholm is likely ever to produce Danish dinosaurs, not the western mainland Denmark. The Mesozoic of Bornholm spans Late Triassic to Late Cretaceous, with someExpand
Two new mammalian teeth (Multituberculata and Peramura) from the Lower Cretaceous (Barremian) of Spain
Abstract Early Cretaceous mammals of Spain are known only from the Galve and Una areas. They are of considerable importance when compared with other Early Cretaceous mammal assemblages, and are theExpand
New multituberculate teeth from the Early Cretaceous of Morocco
Three new multituberculate teeth are described from the Early Cretaceous of Morocco. Denisodon moroccensis gen. et sp. nov. is established for a second lower molar which differs from that of HahnodonExpand
Phylogeny and Systematics of Multituberculate Mammals
It is concluded that microprismatic enamel made its appearance only once in the Cimolodonta and might have originated from unknown members of the Paracimexomys group with separated molar cusps and smooth enamel. Expand
Washover fan and brackish bay sedimentation in the Berriasian-Valanginian of Bornholm, Denmark
ABSTRACT The Robbedale and Jydegard Formations (Berriasian-Valanginian) of the Danish island of Bornholm represent a 100 m thick vertical sequence from shoreface, foreshore and beach sands of aExpand
Bivalve mass mortality caused by toxic dinoflagellate blooms in a Berriasian-Valanginian lagoon, Bornholm, Denmark
Thin lagoon-margin clay beds of the Berriasian-Valanginian Jydegdrd Formation contain monospecific assemblages of the bivalve Neomiodon angulata and the gastropod Viviparus cariniferus andExpand
The Tertiary Marsupialia
The best test of the relations in density between molten and solidified rock is apparently to compare the density of the rock just before fusion, or at least near that point, with the density of theExpand

There is little consistency in the notation and orientation terminology used in discussions of non-mammalian fossil vertebrate dentitions, so the use of the terms mesial and distal to designate tooth surfaces and directions facing toward and away from the mandibular symphysis is suggested. Expand
