  author={Varun Parmar and Guntupalli V. R. Prasad and Deepak Kumar},
Mesozoic deposits of the former Gondwanaland are depauperate in early mammals, in general, and multituberculate mammals, in particular. Until now, the oldest multituberculate mammals known from the Gondwanan continents come from the Early Cretaceous of Morocco, NW Africa. Here, we report the presence of a new multituberculate mammal, Indobaatar zofiae gen. et sp. nov., from the Lower/Middle Jurassic Kota Formation, Pranhita-Godavari valley in peninsular India. This is the first record of a… 

Largest known Mesozoic multituberculate from Eurasia and implications for multituberculate evolution and biology

The phylogenetic analysis based on craniodental characters places Yubaartar as the immediate outgroup of Taeniolabidoidea, a group consisting of a North American clade and an Asian clade, which indicates at least a faunal interchange of multituberculates before the K-Pg transition.

An Enigmatic Multituberculate Mammal from the Early Cretaceous of Siberia, Russia

Baidabatyr, gen. nov., is another relict taxon in the Early Cretaceous mammal fauna of the Ilek Formation, otherwise dominated by docodontans, eutriconodonts, and symmetrodontans.

Multituberculata from the Early Cretaceous of Mongolia

The multituberculate assemblage from the Early Cretaceous Khovoor locality in Mongolia, based on the study of 112 specimens in PIN collection, includes three taxa: arginbaatarid Arginbaatar

A New Eobaatarid Multituberculate (Mammalia) from the Lower Cretaceous Fuxin Formation, Fuxin-Jinzhou Basin, Liaoning, Northeastern China

The description of an additional species of eobaatarid multituberculate from the Fuxin Formation, Dolichoprion lii, gen. et sp.

Multituberculate mammals from the Middle Jurassic of Western Siberia, Russia, and the origin of Multituberculata

Based on isolated teeth from the Middle Jurassic Itat Formation from the Berezovsk coal mine in Krasnoyarsk Territory, Western Siberia, Russia, the teeth of Kermackodon and Megaconus are transitional between Euharamiyida and Middle Jurassic Multituberculata.

The twelve Gondwanan stratigraphic horizons of India have yielded varied vertebrate fossils. The oldest fossil record is the Endothiodon-dominated multitaxic Kundaram fauna, which correlates the

Second specimen of Corriebaatar marywaltersae from the Lower Cretaceous of Australia confirms its multituberculate affinities

A second specimen of the Australian cimolodontan multituberculate Corriebaatar marywaltersae from the same locality (Flat Rocks) as the holotype and previously only known specimen, reveals far more

A reevaluation of the basal turtle Indochelys spatulata from the Early–Middle Jurassic (Toarcian–Aalenian) of India, with descriptions of new material

The phylogenetic analysis affirms the placement of Indochelys spatulata as a basal mesochelydian, but cannot resolve its relationships relative to the roughly coeval Condorchelys antiqua and Kayentachelys aprix.



Multituberculate mammals from near the Early-Late Cretaceous boundary, Cedar Mountain Formation, Utah

The oldest well-sampled multituberculate assemblage from the Cretaceous of North America is described and it is suggested that Cimolodontidae may have arisen from a clade within the 'Paracimexomys group', independent of ptilodontoids.


Abstract:  New multituberculate mammals from the Hauterivian/Barremian transition of Europe are described. They were found in the late Hauterivian‐early Barremian fossiliferous locality of La

A New Species of the Plagiaulacoid Multituberculate Mammal Eobaatar from the Early Cretaceous of Southern Britain

A number of new specimens representing an assemblage of at least six taxa are recovered from the Wessex Formation, including a well-preserved plagiaulacoid multituberculate left m1 and a similarly preserved left I3, which permits diagnosis of a new species of eobaatarid, Eobaatar clemensi sp.

First ? cimolodontan multituberculate mammal from South America

We describe a Cretaceous ?cimolodontan multituberculate p4 from South America, for which we erect the new genus and species Argentodites coloniensis. This new taxon is represented by an isolated

Early Cretaceous Multituberculate Mammals from the Kuwajima Formation (Tetori Group), Central Japan

Hakusanobaatar matsuoi gen. et sp. nov. and Tedoribaatar reini gen. et sp. nov. are multituberculate mammals recovered from the Lower Cretaceous (Barremian to lower Aptian) Kuwajima Formation of the

Triconodont mammals from the Jurassic Kota Formation of India

New mammalian teeth recovered from the Lower/Middle Jurassic Kota Formation, Pranhita-Godavari valley, peninsular India, are described. In its gross morphology, VPL/JU/KM/13 compares well with
