Abstract Even in the absence of associated skeletal material, isolated feathers in amber remain of high scientific interest. The remarkable preservation of these delicate structures in amber, implies a potential for significantly improving our knowledge of feather evolution and diversity. A large sample set of 150 Burmese amber specimens (Upper Cretaceous, ~99 Ma) containing feathers is herein described. Several structural types can be differentiated including flight feathers, contour feathers, ...

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...

Skeletal inclusions in approximately 99-million-year-old amber from northern Myanmar provide unprecedented insights into the soft tissue and skeletal anatomy of minute fauna, which are not typically preserved in other depositional environments1–3. Among a diversity of vertebrates, seven specimens that preserve the skeletal remains of enantiornithine birds have previously been described1,4–8, all of which (including at least one seemingly mature specimen) are smaller than specimens recovered from...

Abstract All of the bird specimens previously recovered from Burmese amber have belonged to either immature specimens, or small-bodied taxa belonging to Enantiornithes. This has led to questions about whether the size bias inherent to preservation in amber has limited inclusions to smaller individuals or species, or if the avifauna of the amber-producing forest had a stronger representation of small-bodied taxa than other Cretaceous assemblages. A newly discovered inclusion of a fragmentary bird...

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...
