Abstract The first pliosaurid finding in Austria is described from the Lower Cretaceous (Hauterivian) pelagic to hemipelagic limestone succession of the Northern Calcareous Alps (Bajuvaric Langbath Zone). The isolated tooth crown originates from the upper Hauterivian Balearites balearis Zone (Balearites angulicostatus Subzone). The finding sheds light on the diversity and distribution of pliosaurids in the Lower Cretaceous, being only the second occurrence of conical-toothed pliosaurid in the Ha...
Abstract In this work we describe new remains and possible gastroliths of a sphagesaurid (Mesoeucrocodylia: Notosuchia) unearthed from the Adamantina Formation (Bauru Group, Upper Cretaceous) in the municipality of Fernandopolis-SP, which add new data about the dental, dermal shield, and the post-cranial skeleton morphology of these crocodilians. Phylogenetic analyses place the studied fossil within Sphagesauridae, in a polytomy with Armadillosuchus arrudai and Caryonosuchus pricei. The anatomic...
Abstract Azarpsocus perreaui gen. et sp. nov., third Cretaceous manicapsocid genus, is described from the Burmese amber. It shows that the diversity of this group was probably higher during this period as in the extant fauna.

Abstract This paper describes fragmentary turtle material (isolated basisphenoid, shell bones, humerus and ilium) from the Lower Cretaceous (Berriasian–Barremian) Teete locality in Yakutia (Eastern Siberia, Russia). All the material is attributed to one taxon of basal turtles (Mesochelydia indet.), based on the morphology of the basisphenoid, shell bones and humerus, as well as microanatomy and histology of the shell bones and humerus. Canals and foramina of the basisphenoid of this taxon reveal...

Abstract Nocticolidae are delicate cockroaches, characterized by simple but unique wing venation. They are included in Corydioidea with Corydiidae. No fossil of this family was reported. Here we describe a stem member of Nocticolidae, Crenocticola burmanica gen. et sp. nov., from mid-Cretaceous Burmese amber. Its morphology appears plesiomorphic for Nocticolidae, and exhibits transitional form between crown Nocticolidae and Latindiinae (in Corydiidae). Placing Crenocticola in stem Nocticolidae i...

Abtract Whiteflies (Aleyrodidae) are tiny hemipteran insects with specialized ontogeny and morphology. A new extinct taxon, Paraburmoselis kachinensis gen. et sp. nov., is erected herein based upon a fossil whitefly trapped in the mid-Cretaceous Kachin amber from northern Myanmar. Paraburmoselis gen. nov., as the fourth genus of the Mesozoic subfamily Bernaeinae, can be distinguished from its con-subfamilials by possessing a series of unique features: metatarsi with basitarsomere long, about 1.5...
