Hagfish depart so much from other fishes anatomically that they were sometimes considered not fully vertebrate. They may represent: ( i ) an anatomically primitive outgroup of vertebrates (the morphology-based craniate hypothesis); or ( ii ) an anatomically degenerate vertebrate lineage sister to lampreys (the molecular-based cyclostome hypothesis). This systematic conundrum has become a prominent case of conflict between morphology- and molecular-based phylogenies. To date, the fossil record ha...

Dromiceiomimus brevitertius is a North American ornithomimid diagnosed primarily by the ratio of tibia length to femur length. It has recently, and perhaps incorrectly, been considered synonymous with Ornithomimus edmontonicus, with several authors questioning the utility of limb ratios in diagnosing taxa. While isolated ornithomimosaur material is common, specimens with sufficient diagnostic material to explore the question of synonymy are comparatively rare. The putative Dromiceiomimus specime...

Abstract A new peirosaurid crocodyliform from the Upper Cretaceous (Santonian) of South America, Barrosasuchus neuquenianus gen. et sp. nov. is here described. Barrosasuchus is distinguished by a combination of features that include: presence of a foramen at the mid-point of the dorsal surface of the mandibular symphysis; quadratojugal dorsally broad, extensively contacting the postorbital articulation; absence of ventral exposure of splenials along mandibular rami, posterior to the symphysis; m...

Abstract A new dicraeosaurid sauropod, Pilmatueia faundezi gen. et sp. nov. from the Mulichinco Formation (Valanginian, Lower Cretaceous, Neuquen Basin, Argentina) is based on isolated skeletal remains collected from a single stratigraphic level, relatively close to each other, with unquestionable dicraeosaurid features in the axial elements. Pilmatueia faundezi is diagnosed by a unique combination of several features that include cervico-dorsal vertebrae with dorsoventrally oriented ridges on t...

AbstractAlthough fragmentary remains of sturgeon, such as scutes and pectoral spines, are relatively common in fossil deposits, articulated fossilized skeletons are rare in Upper Cretaceous sediments of North America. Currently, there are four extinct species referred to Acipenseridae reported from the Upper Cretaceous of North America; two of them (†Acipenser eruciferus and †A. albertensis) are of doubtful validity because they are based on isolated elements that are probably not diagnostic. On...

Abstract—Eggs and eggshell are generally rare in the Upper Cretaceous rocks of Alberta, despite being relatively abundant nearby in Montana. Palaeontologists and other people have been prospecting the Horseshoe Canyon Formation for more than a 130 years, but eggshell fragments have only just been recovered. The fragments are unornamented with angusticanaliculate pores and three structural layers. Numerous features support their referral to Prismatoolithus levis, and they confirm the presence of ...
