Sea spiders (Pycnogonida) are strange arthropods characterized by a unique morphology, including reduced body, egg-carrying appendages and a proboscis. This peculiar body plan dates at least as early as the first undoubted occurrence of the group, 425 million years ago in the Silurian. All extant species belong to the order Pantopoda, characterized by cylindrical legs and an unsegmented abdomen. Palaeozoic fossils are much more diversified and exhibit features very different from pantopod morpho...

A collection of spiders from the Cretaceous (Albian) Jinju Formation of Korea is described. These finds increase the number of known spiders from the Jinju Formation from one to 11. There is considerable diversity of mygalomorphs and araneomorphs, including palpimanoids (including lagonomegopids), as well as cribellate and ecribellate entelegynes. Such diversity among so few specimens hints that an even greater range of families will come to light as more specimens are discovered in the future. ...

A new crocodylomorph from the upper Barremian Incigez Formation of Zonguldak (NW Turkey) is described for the first time based on jaw and limb bone elements from the collection of the Istanbul Technical University. The material is attributed to Turcosuchus okani gen. et sp. nov. according to a unique combination of character states, such as a strong heterodonty, composed of non-spatulated teeth, a maximum of 10 teeth posterior to the symphysis, a sigmoidal dorsal margin of the dentary in lateral...

This study reports diverse spiriferellid brachiopods from the Permian rocks of Svalbard and adjacent areas (Arctic Canada and Subpolar Urals of Russia) located at the northern margin of Pangaea. In total, 11 brachiopod species in four genera are recognized and described in detail, including two new species (Spiriferella protodraschei and Arcullina? enokiani). According to our taxonomic investigation, morphological characteristics of the ventral sulcus and dorsal fold are relatively stable within...

We present new species of an enigmatic family of mammals, which is endemic to Europe, the Paroxyclaenidae: Merialus bruneti sp. nov., Fratrodon tresvauxi gen. et sp. nov., Paraspaniella gunnelli gen. et sp. nov., and Sororodon tresvauxae gen. et sp. nov. The fossils described come from six localities of the Ypresian of the Paris Basin (France): Pourcy (MP7), Mutigny, Avenay, Conde-en-Brie (MP8 + 9), Grauves and Premontre (MP10). They allow the description of three new genera and four new species...

The damselfly superfamily Coenagrionoidea is the largest zygopteran group, comprising three-fifths of all extant damselfly species. The Mesozoic fossil record of this superfamily is sparse, whilst it is relatively common in Burmese amber. A new coenagrionoid family, Burmacoenagrionidae Zheng et al., fam. nov., is established here based on four new species in three new genera: Burmacoenagrion pretiosus Zheng et al. gen. et sp. nov., Burmachistigma cheni Zheng et al. gen. et sp. nov., Electrocoena...

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 ...

During the Cenozoic, the constant northward movement of the African plate led to the division of the Tethys Ocean into two: the Palaeomediterranean and the Paratethyan branches. The latter was represented by a huge epicontinental sea and brackish to freshwater lakes that extended across central Europe and western Asia. Neogene and Quaternary ostracods from the Paratethys originated through major adaptive radiations, which gave rise to endemic brackish taxa. Unfortunately, much confusion surround...
