  author={Linda Lagebro and Pierre Gu{\'e}riau and Thomas A. Hegna and Nicolas Rabet and Aodh{\'a}n D. Butler and Graham E. Budd},
A new notostracan crustacean, Strudops goldenbergi gen. et sp. nov., is described from the well‐preserved terrestrial arthropod fauna of the Upper Devonian of Strud, Belgium. The fossil notostracan bears a close resemblance to modern notostracans in possessing a large, simple head shield covering almost half of the whole body, a set of phyllopodous thoracic appendages and a legless posterior abdomen with a telson bearing a caudal furca. The differentiation and relative size of mouthparts and… 
New discoveries of tetrapods (ichthyostegid‐like and whatcheeriid‐like) in the Famennian (Late Devonian) localities of Strud and Becco (Belgium)
Tetrapod remains from two Famennian localities from Belgium are described, confirming that environments favourable to early tetrapod life were often colonized by several tetrapOD taxa and several derived anatomical characters allowing their tentative assignment to a whatcheeriid-grade group.
Stylonurine eurypterids from the Strud locality (Upper Devonian, Belgium): new insights into the ecology of freshwater sea scorpions
Abstract The Upper Famennian (Upper Devonian) Strud locality has yielded very abundant and diversified flora as well as vertebrate and arthropod faunas. The arthropod fauna, mostly recovered from
A Review of Recently Discovered Remains of the Pleistocene Branchiopods (Anostraca, Notostraca) from NE Siberia and Arctic Canada
In this study, we examine, identify, and discuss fossil remains of large branchiopod crustaceans collected from six sites across the Beringian region (north-eastern Asia and north-western North
An enigmatic Arthropoda from the Upper Triassic (Carnian) southwestern Gondwana (Argentina)
Abstract. The presence of a new taxon, Duraznovis gallegoi new genus new species is reported and described from an early Late Triassic (Carnian) deposit in Argentina. Two specimens, recovered from
An enigmatic Arthropoda from the Upper Triassic (Carnian) southwestern Gondwana (Argentina) — CORRIGENDUM
—The presence of a new taxon, Duraznovis gallegoi new genus new species is reported and described from an early Late Triassic (Carnian) deposit in Argentina. Two specimens, recovered from the
A new calmanostracan crustacean species from the Cretaceous Yixian Formation and a simple approach for differentiating fossil tadpole shrimps and their relatives
A new calmanostracan crustacean from the Yixian Formation, Notostraca oleseni, is described and a simple tool using a morphospace analysis to delineate different species is provided, providing a tool to demarcate the kazacharthran-like specimen described, but not formally named.
Pleistocene Branchiopods (Cladocera, Anostraca) from Transbaikalian Siberia Demonstrate Morphological and Ecological Stasis
It is demonstrated that the branchiopod community in shallow steppe water bodies has been unchanged since at least the Pleistocene, demonstrating long-term morphological and ecological stasis.
Placoderm Assemblage from the Tetrapod-Bearing Locality of Strud (Belgium, Upper Famennian) Provides Evidence for a Fish Nursery
The Strud depositional environment corresponds to a channel in an alluvial plain, and the presence of a nursery in such environment could have provided nutrients and protection to the placoderm offspring, one of the earliest pieces of evidence for habitat partitioning in vertebrate history.
Bivalved arthropods from the Middle Ordovician Winneshiek Lagerstätte, Iowa, USA
Abstract. The Middle Ordovician (Darriwilian) Winneshiek Lagerstätte of northeast Iowa is preserved in a meteorite crater. Besides conodonts, the fossils are dominated by arthropods, particularly
Characterization of the placoderm (Gnathostomata) assemblage from the tetrapod‐bearing locality of Strud (Belgium, upper Famennian)
The placoderm fauna of the late Famennian tetrapod‐bearing locality of Strud, Belgium, is studied on the basis of historical and newly collected material and it is demonstrated that there is only one species of Phyllolepis in Belgium, that P. rossimontina (Pennsylvania) is a synonym of P. undulata and that the unity of the genus Phyllolespis is strongly supported.


Is Strudiella a Devonian insect?
It is believed that, like several other Devonian arthropod remains, Strudiella is not an insect, and utmost diligence should be taken in interpreting poorly preserved DevonianArthropods.
Palaeogeography: Devonian tetrapod from western Europe
A tetrapod jaw of about 365 million years old from the Famennian of Belgium is described, which is the first from western continental Europe and provides information about the conditions that prevailed just before the virtual disappearance of tetrapods from the fossil record for 20 Myr.
Two New “Notostracans”, Chenops gen. nov. and Jeholops gen. nov. (Crustacea: Branchiopoda: ?Notostraca) from the Yixian Formation, Northeastern China
The Early Cretaceous Jehol biota of northeastern China contains a diverse group of notostracans, including two genera, Chenops and Jeholops, described here, and both new genera are provisionally placed in the taxon Notostraca.
Abstract Remains from the Upper Devonian (Famennian) of Belgium attributed to an early ‘amphibian’ during the nineteenth century are reviewed. This putative tetrapod material is identified here as a

A new crustacean, Castracollis wilsonae is described from a loose block of the Early Devonian Rhynie chert, found in the vicinity ofRhynie, Aberdeenshire, Scotland, indicating subaqueous deposition, most probably in a temporary freshwater pool in an area of surficial hydrothermal activity.
First decapod crustaceans in a Late Devonian continental ecosystem
The origin and early diversification of decapod crustaceans and their expansion from marine to continental environments are key events in arthropod evolution. Rare fossil decapods are known from the
Exceptionally preserved crustaceans from western Canada reveal a cryptic Cambrian radiation
Diverse crustacean appendages of Middle and Late Cambrian age from shallow-marine mudstones of the Deadwood Formation in western Canada provide the earliest evidence for crown-group branchiopods and total-group copepods and ostracods, extending the respective ranges of these clades back from the Devonian, Pennsylvanian, and Ordovician.
Crustacea with preserved soft parts from the Upper Cambrian of Sweden
Six monotypic new genera of small crustaceans with phosphatised integument are described from Upper Cambrian, mainly bituminous limestone of southern Sweden, revealing a nauplius-like organisation of the head region and suggesting that some of the forms were benthie, while others may have been epibcnthic and active swimmers.
On a New Type of Crustacean from the Old Red Sandstone (Rhynie Chert Bed, Aberdeenshire)-Lepidocaris rhyniensis, gen. et sp. nov.
The Chert Bed of Middle, or possibly Lower, Old Red Sandstone age discovered by Dr. W. Mackie (1914) at Rhynie, in Aberdeenshire, has become famous among palaeo-botanists on account of the
