The genus Pseudopolyconites is distributed in Upper Cretaceous successions of the Central Tethys. Specimens have been recovered from carbonate, siliciclastic, volcanoclastic or mixed carbonate/siliciclastic successions dated from the late Santonian or early Campanian to the latest Maastrichtian, but often only fragmented shells have been collected and described. Many species have been established but the constructional morphology of individuals and, in particular, the characters of the outer… Expand

Description of Pseudosabinia klinghardti and some species of Pseudopolyconites (rudist bivalves) from the Late Cretaceous shallow-marine deposits from the Roşia Basin, Apuseni Mountains, Romania: Systematic palaeontology, biostratigraphy, and palaeobiogeography
Abstract The shallow-marine, mixed siliciclastic-calcareous Late Cretaceous deposits from the Apuseni Mountains have been extensively studied and compared to coeval deposits from the Alpine Gosau.Expand

A Cenomanian–Santonian rudist–bearing carbonate platform on the northern Arabian Plate, Turkey: facies and sequence stratigraphy
Abstract Recent studies have shown that Cenomanian–Santonian carbonate sedimentary rocks rich in rudists are widespread throughout southeastern Turkey. The Derdere and Karababa formations have beenExpand
The rudist bivalve Pironaea milovanovici Kühn, 1935, a multiple-fold Hippuritidae, from south-eastern Spain. Taxonomic implications. Pore and canal system constructional morphology
TLDR
The pore and canal system of the left valve is described in detail, based on differently weathered valves and differently oriented sections; it is constrained by the presence of secondary pillars in both valves. Expand
