Successions exposed in the Agadir Basin (upper Albian to middle Turonian), in the Anti-Atlas (lower Turonian) in Morocco and in central Tunisia (Cenomanian–Turonian) yield abundant microcrinoids of the family Roveacrinidae, which are described and assigned to 32 species and formae, in ten genera. The following new taxa are described: Fenestracrinus gen. nov. with the type species F. oculifer sp. nov., Discocrinus africanus sp. nov., Styracocrinus rimafera sp. nov., Lebenharticrinus quinvigintens...

The genus Astrophiura, which ranks among the most extraordinary of modern brittle stars, is the type genus of the recently resurrected family Astrophiuridae within the order Ophiurida. On account of its absurdly enlarged and strongly modified lateral arm plates, Astrophiura bears a closer resemblance to a pentagonal starfish than to a typical ophiuroid. Although molecular evidence suggests an ancient origin of the Astrophiuridae, dating back at least to the Early Jurassic, not a single fossil as...

Abstract The stratigraphy and correlation of middle and upper Turonian hardgrounds developed around the margins of the Anglo-Paris Basin in southern England (Chalk Rock) and Normandy (Tilleul Hardgrounds) are reassessed using microcrinoid stratigraphy. The Chalk Rock was formed by two, discrete events – an earlier, erosional or non-depositional hiatus that cuts out much of the middle Turonian in Dorset and Wiltshire (Ogbourne Hardground) and extends across the English Channel to Normandy as the ...

Abstract Asteroids from the lower Aptian Lower Greensand of the Isle of Wight are described. Two articulated specimens are referred to the extant paxillosid family Pseudarchasteridae and transferred to a living genus, i.e., Paragonaster, P. wightensis (Breton, 1992). Isolated marginal plates are assigned to the widespread Cretaceous astropectinid genus Coulonia, and described as C. caseyi sp. nov. The Cretaceous genus Comptonia Gray, 1840 is referred to the Pseudarchasteridae and revised taxonom...

Abstract New thoracican cirripede material from the Kimmeridge Clay (Upper Jurassic, Tithonian) is described. This includes a log, encrusted on the lower surface with hundreds of perfectly preserved, articulated specimens of Etcheslepas durotrigensis Gale, 2014, and fewer specimens of Concinnalepas costata (Withers, 1928). Some individuals are preserved in life position, hanging from the underside of the wood, and the material provides new morphological information on both species. It appears th...

Abstract The first cirripedes from the Portland and Purbeck groups of southern England are described, and referred to two new species, Loriolepas whytei sp. nov and Etcheslepas portlandensis sp. nov. They constitute the first records of cirripedes from the upper Tithonian (uppermost Jurassic) and Berriasian (lowermost Cretaceous) of western Europe. A new family, the Archaeolepadidae, is introduced for the extinct genera Archaeolepas and Loriolepas.

Abstract Diverse thoracican cirripedes from the Hauterivian of the Hannover district of northern Germany are described, including seven species, belonging to five genera. Of these, a new genus belonging to the Scalpellidae, Jaegerscalpellum, includes one Hauterivian species, J. elegans sp. nov., an Aptian species, J. comptum (Withers, 1910) and an Albian species, J. politum (Darwin, 1851) are also referred to it. A new Cretiscalpellum, C. mutterlosei sp. nov. is described from the Hauterivian, a...
