Abstract The trace elements and isotopic compositions of macroelongatoolithid eggshells provide insights into the palaeoenvironment of these huge eggs preservation. We analysed the geochemical characteristics of newly discovered macroelongatoolithid eggs from the early Cretaceous Zhaoying Formation in the Xixia Basin, Henan Province, China. X-ray diffraction results reveal that the minerals of these eggs are predominately composed of calcite. The major elements in eggshells are Ca, Mg, K, Na, Al...

Abstract The Early Cretaceous lizard Yabeinosaurus is well-represented in the Jehol Biota of northeast China, with specimens yielding information on ontogenetic development, reproductive strategy, and diet, as well as skeletal morphology. However, a large, well-preserved, new specimen of Yabeinosaurus robustus from the Lamadong locality, Liaoning, provides further insights into the morphology and biology of this species. Integumentary traces demonstrate that, in life, Y. robustus was coloured wi...

Abstract Compsognathids — long regarded as an assemblage of ‘prototypical’ small theropods including the historically significant Compsognathus and Sinosauropteryx — have patchy distributions. The majority of definitive members of the clade come from the Upper Jurassic Solnhofen Archipelago and the Lower Cretaceous Yixian Formation. Chronologically falling between these two major compsognathid localities, a new compsognathid described in this paper, Xunmenglong yinliangis gen. et sp. nov, occurs...

Abstract Slabs with tetrapod tracks from the Madigou Village quarry in the Tuchengzi Formation have famously been used as building stones at the imperial summer resort locality, also referred to in the ichnological literature as the “Chengde Summer Palace.” The Jurassic-Cretaceous boundary Tuchengzi Formation has elsewhere in the region yielded differently composed ichnofaunas with non-avian and avian theropod and sauropod tracks. The Madigou assemblage is remarkable because it shows the co-occu...

A new Middle Jurassic tracksite dominated by non-avian theropod footprints from the Wangjiashan Formation in Pingchuan District, Baojishan Basin, Gansu Province has yielded a unique trackway with four consecutive manus-pes sets. Only three previous examples, all Early Jurassic in age, of theropod trackways are known with convincing examples of manus tracks and in each case, only two tracks were recorded in association with pes tracks with metatarsal impressions and pelvic traces indicating crouc...

For most fossil taxa, dietary inference relies primarily on indirect evidence from jaw morphology and the dentition. In rare cases, however, preserved gut contents provide direct evidence of feeding strategy and species interaction. This is important in the reconstruction of food webs and energy flow through ancient ecosystems. The Early Cretaceous Chinese Jehol Biota has yielded several such examples, with lizards, birds, small dinosaurs, and mammals as both predator and prey. Here we describe ...

Small theropod tracks, ichnogenus Minisauripus, from the Jinju Formation (Cretaceous) of Korea reveal exquisitely preserved skin texture impressions. This is the first report for any dinosaur of skin traces that cover entire footprints, and every footprint in a trackway. Special sedimentological conditions allowed footprint registration without smearing of skin texture patterns which consist of densely-packed, reticulate arrays of small ( 80% of tracks <3.0 cm long, Minisauripus is pivotal in de...

Since the first skeletal remains of avians preserved in amber were described in 2016, new avian remains trapped in Cretaceous-age Burmese amber continue to be uncovered, revealing a diversity of skeletal and feather morphologies observed nowhere else in the Mesozoic fossil record. Here we describe a foot with digital proportions unlike any previously described enantiornithine or Mesozoic bird. No bones are preserved in the new specimen but the outline of the foot is recorded in a detailed skin s...

Over the last three years, Burmese amber (~99 Ma, from Myanmar) has provided a series of immature enantiornithine skeletal remains preserved in varying developmental stages and degrees of completeness. These specimens have improved our knowledge based on compression fossils in Cretaceous sedimentary rocks, adding details of three-dimensional structure and soft tissues that are rarely preserved elsewhere. Here we describe a remarkably well-preserved foot, accompanied by part of the wing plumage. ...
