Tetrapods are rarely recovered from fossil resins, such as amber, and fossils of parasites are even rarer. We describe the first pre-Quaternary co-occurrence of ectoparasitic mites with hairs of their mammalian hosts, preserved in life-like detail from a piece of Eocene (∼ 40 Ma) Baltic amber. The mites, representing the oldest fossils of the family Myobiidae (Acari: Prostigmata: Eleutherengona), are described as Protohylomysobia erinaceophilus Sidorchuk & Bochkov gen. et sp. nov. and belong to ...

This paper presents the results of a unique fur garment from the megalithic tomb of a rich man in the Northwest Caucasus, dated to the Early Bronze Age, which was excavated in 1898 (Tsarskaya, Russia). The garment was made from the fur of a souslik group animal, most likely the ground squirrel. Direct radiocarbon dating puts the fur at around 4445 ± 35 BP (ca. 3300-3000 BC), making it the earliest known fur garment in Eastern Europe. The choice of souslik fur stands in direct contrast to widely ...

Abstract We studied morphometric features of the spiral structure of the narwhal tusk and show that angular parameters of the arcs of the cementum layer determine the pattern of the spiral structure of the tusk. Given the straight shape of the tusk and the inclined pattern of the arcs of the cementum layer, the angular characteristics of the spiral were determined through the ratio of the legs of a right triangle, which was a basis for calculating the tangent of the angle of inclination. We foun...

The structure of the papillomatous junction between epidermis and dermis (papillomatous netting, PN) in the skin of cetaceans (white whales, bowhead, and gray whales) and sirens (American manatee, dugong) was studied and compared using histophysiological and morphogeometric methods. The relative extent of PN development proved to be similar in members of both orders, but significant differences were found in PN configuration, the volume of “free area of grille”, the degree of skin vertical compr...

The paper presents results of the morphological and isotopic analyses of fur remnants coming from a dol-men dating to the Early Bronze Age (the end of the 4rd millennium BC) discovered near Stanitsa Tsarska-ya in the North-West Caucasus, 1898. It has been established that the fur garment of the buried individual was made of souslik (a short-tailed ground squirrel (S. citellus) skins, maybe, skins of Spermophilus pyg-maeus. This part of the outer clothes was probably a fur coat which covered the ...

A skull of cave lion, Panthera spelaea (Goldfuss, 1810) was discovered in glacial deposits in north-eastern Russia. It reveals deep traces of canine teeth on its face, associated with suffocation by another lion. This was the real cause of death and one of the manners of modern lions killing. Radiocarbon dating shows that the skull is older than 48,500 calendar years. The observed features suggest biology similar to modern lions in social behaviour: hierarchy, competition between males, struggle...

The skull of the extinct rhinoceros Stephanorhinus kirchbergensis (Jager, 1839) was discovered in the Chondon River valley (Arctic Yakutia, Russia) during the summer of 2014. This is the first find of Stephanorhinus above the Arctic Circle, expanding significantly the known geographic range of the genus. 14 C dating and geologic evidence indicate that the skull dates to between 48,000 and 70,000 yr, corresponding to Marine Oxygen Isotope Stage 4/3. It is thus among the latest records of this spe...
