Abstract In this work we describe new remains and possible gastroliths of a sphagesaurid (Mesoeucrocodylia: Notosuchia) unearthed from the Adamantina Formation (Bauru Group, Upper Cretaceous) in the municipality of Fernandopolis-SP, which add new data about the dental, dermal shield, and the post-cranial skeleton morphology of these crocodilians. Phylogenetic analyses place the studied fossil within Sphagesauridae, in a polytomy with Armadillosuchus arrudai and Caryonosuchus pricei. The anatomic...

ABSTRACTThe Upper Cretaceous Bauru Group deposits furnished several species of Crocodylomorpha, especially notosuchians. However, little is known about the feeding habits of this diverse group of c...

Abstract In this study we determined total mercury concentrations (THg) in a set of fossils from the Upper Cretaceous Bauru Group, Brazil, and investigated how the incorporation of this element occurs in fossil organisms and in their paleoenvironment. The analyzed fossil specimens were collected from two different locations (Jales and Fernandopolis) of the Adamantina Formation and correspond to samples of teeth, bones, osteoderms, and crocodylomorph eggs (probably laid by Baurusuchidae), and the...

Abstract The ichnofabrics and ichnofossils from two outcrops of the Serra da Galga Member (Marilia Formation, Upper Cretaceous), in the Municipality of Uberaba, Minas Gerais of Southeastern Brazil, are analyzed: the first is characterized by fluvial deposits (braided rivers) and paleosols with a set of ichnofabrics comprising rhizobioturbation, rhizohalo-Skolithos, Skolithos, Taenidium, and Skolithos-Taenidium barretti; and the second have more influence of alluvial deposition and is characteriz...

Abstract The vertebrate fossil record from the Quirico Formation, Sanfranciscana Basin (Lower Cretaceous), is scarce, but the remains yet found are of great importance for the understanding of the paleobiogeographic and biogeographic processes that took place during the initial stages that led to the opening of the Atlantic Ocean. In this work, new occurrences of sauropod dinosaur bones and theropod teeth from the Barremian–Aptian Quirico Formation, collected in Campo Azul and Olhos D'Agua, Stat...

Abstract The Marilia Formation (Bauru Group, Upper Cretaceous, Brazil) has furnished a large array of vertebrate fossils. However, its ichnological and botanical contents are poorly explored to date. Here we report findings of invertebrate trace fossils ( Beaconites isp., Skolithos isp., and Taenidium barretti ), rhizoliths associated with rhizomorphs with preserved hyphae, and fossil roots from the Echapora Member, Marilia Formation, Sao Paulo State, Brazil. The association of trace fossils sug...

Abstract The Cretaceous sedimentary rocks from Uberaba, Minas Gerais, have provided a rich vertebrate fauna unearthed from rocks of the Serra da Galga Member, Marilia Formation, Bauru Group, of Maastrichtian age. Together with these fossils, a large number of coprolites have also been found from two main localities, here called the Peiropolis and Serra da Galga sites. During field trips carried out in the last few years, 340 samples have been collected, prepared, and analyzed in laboratory. By u...

Abstract Theropod bone remains from the Bauru Group, Upper Cretaceous, Southeastern Brazil, are scarce and poorly preserved. Because of that much of the information about these dinosaurs mainly relies on isolated teeth. Here we report a set of theropod teeth found in association with several crocodylomorph teeth and a well-preserved and semi-articulated sauropod dinosaur from the Adamantina Formation deposits. The teeth were analyzed under both morphological and morphometric point of views and t...

Abstract Among titanosaurs, osteoderms are morphologically diverse and have been reported from deposits in South America, Africa, Madagascar, Eurasia and Oceania. In Brazil, titanosaur osteoderms are rare and have only been recorded from Bauru Basin sedimentary rocks. Here, we describe a keeled titanosaur osteoderm, which is the first occurrence of an osteoderm specimen in the Sao Luis Basin, Northeastern Brazil. This osteoderm is characterized by an external bulb, an internal root, and a very r...

: Compared with crocodylomorph body fossils, the record of fossil crocodiloid eggs is scarce and poorly understood, a gap partially attributed to their typically thin eggshell, which is not conducive to preservation. A remarkable new association of well-preserved eggs and eggshells from the Adamantina Formation (Bauru Group, Upper Cretaceous) is described and compared to other known materials, while the significance of their unique oological features is discussed. These eggs constitute a new oot...
