We describe in detail three braincases of the ankylosaur Bissektipelta archibaldi from the Late Cretaceous (Turonian) of Uzbekistan with the aid of computed tomography, segmentation, and 3D modeling. Bissektipelta archibaldi is confirmed as a valid taxon and attributed to Ankylosaurinae based on the results of a phylogenetic analysis. The topographic relationships between the elements forming the braincase are determined using a newly referred specimen with preserved sutures, which is an exceedi...

Abstract Three sauropod middle caudal vertebrae are described from the three different localities within the Lower Cretaceous (Barremian-Aptian) Ilek Formation in Krasnoyarsk Territory, Western Siberia, Russia. All vertebrae are strongly procoelous and can be referred to Lithostrotia indet. LMCCE 005/40 from Bol’shoi Kemchug 3 locality has a ventral groove on centrum and a very large neural spine that projects posteriorly far beyond the centrum. This specimen also lacks postzygapophyses and bear...

Salamanders (Caudata) are one of the three modern groups of amphibians known from the Middle Jurassic. The early stages of evolution of these amphibians are still poorly known, especially for stem taxa of Jurassic age. A new small-sized stem salamander, Egoria malashichevi gen. et sp. nov., from the Middle Jurassic (Bathonian) Itat Formation of the Berezovsk Quarry locality in Western Siberia, Russia, is described on the basis of isolated vertebrae, including an atlas centrum and a fragmentary t...

AbstractThe Lower Cretaceous Ilek Formation in Western Siberia (Russia) has yielded various vertebrate fossils, including skeletal remains of dinosaurs. Here we report on a fragmentary theropod egg from the vertebrate locality Shestakovo 3 of the Ilek Formation in Kemerovo Province. We assign the specimen to the oogenus Prismatoolithus (oofamily Prismatoolithidae) as Prismatoolithus ilekensis oosp. nov., on the basis of the following unique combination of characters: ovoid-shaped egg; thin eggsh...

Abstract This paper presents histological data on the long bones of different size (age) individuals of the basal cryptobranchid salamander Eoscapherpeton asiaticum from the Upper Cretaceous (Turonian) of Uzbekistan. E. asiaticum is similar to modern members of Cryptobranchidae in being relatively large (estimated body length up to 50–60 cm), aquatic, and neotenic. The analysis of growth series of femora demonstrates a significant histological maturation during ontogeny, expressed by the progres...

Isolated sauropod teeth and caudal vertebrae from the Middle Jurassic Itat Formation of the Berezovsk coal mine, Krasnoyarsk Territory, Russia, are attributed to the endemic Asiatic eusauropod family Mamenchisauridae based mostly on phenetic similarity. The few large anterior teeth lack marginal denticles. In small, possible juvenile posterior teeth there are denticles on both mesial and distal crown margins. The anterior caudal vertebrae are deeply procoelous, while the posterior caudal vertebr...
