Abstract The close association of osteological remains and fossil eggs sometimes leads to misinterpretations, particularly in the absence of adequate taphonomic data. A clutch of 15 fossil eggs from the Upper Cretaceous Xiaguan Formation, Henan Province, China occurs in close association to a partial skeleton of the neoceratopsian, Mosaiceratops azumai. Two centimeters of sediment separate several eggs on the edge of the clutch from the rostrum of the skull. However, preservation of aragonite cr...

The tail club knob is a highly specialized structure thought to characterize a subgroup of the ankylosaurine ankylosaurians, and the oldest documented tail club knob in the fossil record occurred in the Campanian ankylosaurine Pinacosaurus. Here we report a new ankylosaurid Jinyunpelta sinensis, gen. et sp. nov., from the Albian–Cenomanian Liangtoutang Formation, Jinyun County, Zhejiang, China. This is the first definitive and the best preserved ankylosaurid dinosaur ever found in southern China...

ABSTRACTMesozoic avian eggs are rare, especially from the mid-Cretaceous basins of Zhejiang Province, China. Here we report an avian egg from the Lower Cretaceous (Albian) Liangtoutang Formation. The specimen (JYM F0033) measures 50 mm × 32 mm and the 166-µm-thick eggshell consists of three structural layers of calcite. The mammillary layer (ML) and overlying continuous layer (CL) each measure approximately 46 µm, whereas the outermost, external layer (EL) measures 74 µm. Ratios of these layers ...

Hupehsuchus nanchangensis has been known from five specimens from the Triassic of China since its type was found in 1972. However, our knowledge of its morphology is still limited because of the poor preservation of the known specimens. This article aims to (1) update the morphological information of the animal on the basis of a new specimen from the same stratum of the type in the neighbouring Yuanan County, Hubei Province, China; (2) revise the diagnostic features of the animal and (3) make a ...

A new egg is described from the Upper Cretaceous lacustrine deposit of the Chichengshan Formation in the Tiantai Basin, Zhejiang Province, southeast China. The new specimen shares eggshell micro-features with members of the oofamily Stalicoolithidae, Paraspheroolithus of the oofamily Spheroolithidae and Mosaicoolithus (oofamily indet.), with barrel-shaped cones, prolatocanaliculate pore system, horizontal accretion lines and light stripes throughout the eggshell. However, the new egg differs fro...

ABSTRACT Whereas ‘biological site fidelity’ refers to the regular reuse of a favored locale (e.g., breeding ground or nest) by an individual animal, ‘paleontological site fidelity’ typically refers to repeated use of a nesting locality by a herd or species over geologic time scales. Two new Cretaceous specimens from the Two Medicine Formation of Montana, U.S.A., and the Liantoutang Formation of Zhejiang, China, each preserve two closely superimposed clutches of the egg form Prismatoolithus. Thes...

We describe an early juvenile specimen (ZMNH M8812) of Bolong yixianensis from the Yixian Formation (Lower Cretaceous) of Ningcheng County, Nei Mongol, China. The specimen consists of an almost complete skeleton preserved two-dimensionally on a slab. The short and deep skull proportions and unfused neurocentral sutures in most preserved vertebrae suggest that the ZMNH M8812 is a juvenile individual. Osteohistological study confirms a very early developmental stage. The study reveals the ontogene...

Lack of stratigraphic context for dinosaur eggs inhibits understanding of dinosaur reproductive biology and the taphonomic processes of egg preservation. Past taphonomic work suggests two features, compression ridges (sharp edge of broken eggshell around egg circumference) and deformation asymmetry (proportion of crushed to rounded sides of the egg), as geopetal structures. We examined these features across a large sample of Spheroolithus eggs from the Cretaceous of Zhejiang, China, to test thei...
