  • A new, highly diverse paguroid assemblage from the Oxfordian (Upper
           Jurassic) of southern Poland and its environmental distribution

      Abstract: A new, highly diverse paguroid assemblage from the Oxfordian (Upper Jurassic) of southern Poland and its environmental distributionFraaije, René H.B.; Klompmaker, Adiël A.; Jagt, John W.M.; Krobicki, Michał; van Bakel, Barry W.M.
      Neues Jahrbuch für Geologie und Paläontologie - Abhandlungen, (2022), p. 1 - 12Abstract Over the past fifteen years, numerous new Mesozoic paguroid assemblages have been described. Here we add a new, diverse hermit crab faunule comprising members of the families Gastrodoridae, Paguropsidae, Pilgrimchelidae, Pylochelidae and Schobertellidae, as well as a single symmetrical tergite from Upper Jurassic (middle Oxfordian) limestones in Szklarka valley, near Kraków, southern Poland. The paguroid taxa occur mainly in the massive sponge-microbial limestones rather than in the adjacent platy limestones. Previously described species in this lot comprise Ammopylocheles robertboreki, Eopaguropsis nidiaquilae, Gastrodorus bzowiensis, Jurapylocheles iwonae, Masticacheles longirostris and Pilgrimcheles karolinae. The occurrence of Daciapagurus szklarkaensis n. sp. extends the stratigraphical and palaeogeographical range of the genus from the early Kimmeridgian to the middle Oxfordian, while Pylochelitergites cicatrix n. sp. constitutes a novel type of symmetrical paguroid tergite. Both these taxa demonstrate the presence of pylochelids during the early history of paguroid anomurans. With up to eight genera represented, this is the oldest, most diverse extinct paguroid faunule on record to date.

  • The lower Muschelkalk dolostones in Central Sardinia (Italy) and their

      Abstract: The lower Muschelkalk dolostones in Central Sardinia (Italy) and their algal content: sedimentological and paleontological analysisCostamagna, Luca G.; Piros, Olga
      Neues Jahrbuch für Geologie und Paläontologie - Abhandlungen, (2022), p. 13 - 35Abstract In Central Sardinia (Italy) crops out a NW-SE oriented almost continuous thin belt formed by a short succession of siliciclastics and carbonates pertaining to the European Germanic Triassic. The Middle Triassic dolomitic outcrops belong to the lower Yellowish Dolostones Mb of the Monte Maiore Fm of the Sardinian Muschelkalk Group: they have been analyzed for sedimentological, paleoenvironmental, paleontological, and biostratigraphical purposes. These deposits are for the most part laminated mudstones affected by fine dolomitization. Algal bindstones, packstones and wackestones are also present, as well as halokinetic folds, dissolution-collapse breccias, and chert nodules-rich horizons: these latter are telltales of a significant primary evaporitic content now entirely dissolved or replaced by quartz. The macro- and microfacies features suggest deposition in an epeiric, restricted shallow low-energy tidal carbonate platform close to the South European paleomargin and subject to a hot-arid climate. The environment was frequently subject to storms (hurricanes?) leaving graded bioclastic beds behind. Some of the dolomitic outcrops revealed some reworked algae assemblages: one of them gave for the first time a well-preserved association represented by Diplopora annulata, Kantia dolomitica, Macroporella beneckei and Teutloporella nodosa. The algae are fragmented and have been transported: they are the product of storm beds deposition in a protected lagoonal environment. The algae specimens are well-preserved only when the carbonate rock has been silicified prior to dolomitization. The algal assemblage gave an Illyrian (Late Anisian) age. This is in good accord with the established age of the ingression of the Muschelkalk sea in Sardinia and in the Germanic Sephardic Domain. Comparisons have been made with the other lower Muschelkalk outcrops of Sardinia.

      Abstract: First New World Necrotaulius reflects the Laurasian land masses (Insecta: Amphiesmenoptera: Necrotauliidae)Pierwola, Agnieszka A.; Grimaldi, David A.
      Neues Jahrbuch für Geologie und Paläontologie - Abhandlungen, (2022), p. 37 - 50Abstract The Mesozoic family Necrotauliidae has a relatively wide geographic and temporal occurrence in Palearctic deposits from China to England, ranging in age from 235 to 122 Ma. Here we describe the first occurrence of Necrotaulius in the New World, based on two specimens from the early Norian-aged Cow Branch Formation (Late Triassic) of North Carolina-Virginia, eastern USA. An overview of the genus Necrotaulius is provided, including its paleogeographical distribution. Similarities are discussed between Necrotaulius americanus n. sp. and its closest relatives, especially the very similar N. parvulus (Geinitz, 1884) from the Early Jurassic of Europe. This finding provides another example of groups with a Laurasian distribution from the Cow Branch Formation, which are briefly reviewed.

      Abstract: Late Pleistocene fossil assemblages from the travertine site of Bešeňová Báňa – indicators of a potential presence of prehistoric manSabol, Martin; Hromadová, Bibiána; Čejka, Tomáš; Tóth, Csaba; Šedivá, Mária; Hriadel, Pavol
      Neues Jahrbuch für Geologie und Paläontologie - Abhandlungen, (2022), p. 51 - 103Abstract Old collected fossil finds of molluscs and mammals from Quaternary of karst fissure fillings in the abandoned travertine quarry near Bešeňová (northern Slovakia) are analysed from the viewpoint of taxonomy, stratigraphy, palaeoecology and taphonomy. A special attention is paid to indications of potential presence of prehistoric man at this site, which is documented by marks mainly on osteological remains of herbivores. Based on the obtained data together with previously recorded finds of Middle Palaeolithic stone tools, the site can be considered as an important place of Neanderthal settlement.

  • Phosphatic cirripedes from the Lower Jurassic (Pliensbachian) of Germany,

      Abstract: Phosphatic cirripedes from the Lower Jurassic (Pliensbachian) of Germany, and a revision of the family Eolepadidae Buckeridge, 1983 (Crustacea, Thoracica)Gale, Andy; Keupp, Helmut; Schweigert, Günter
      Neues Jahrbuch für Geologie und Paläontologie - Abhandlungen, (2022), p. 105 - 113Abstract Phosphatic fossils from the upper Pliensbachian Pleuroceras spinatum ammonite Zone of Buttenheim (Bavaria, southern Germany), identified previously as scyphopolyps and named Liapora neubigi by Keupp (2019), are demonstrated to be the capitular valves of a phosphatic barnacle that had been described as Pollicipes(?) lotharingica by Méchin in 1901 from an identical level at Agincourt (Meurthe-et-Moselle, northeastern France). The new material, representing only the second record of the species and the first discovery of the scutum, is described and the genus Liapora Keupp, 2019 is reassigned to the Eolepadidae Buckeridge, 1983. The diagnoses of the other two genera of eolepadids, Eolepas Withers, 1928 and Toarcolepas Gale & Schweigert, 2015 are revised in the light of the new discoveries, and the assignation of species to the three genera is discussed. Eolepadids are a low-diversity group of cirripedes which occur sporadically from the Triassic (Rhaetian) to the Lower Cretaceous (Berriasian) and represent the sister group to all calcite-shelled forms.

  • Geology and palaeoenvironments of Quaternary Tawil deposits in Ma’an
           desert, Jordan

      Abstract: Geology and palaeoenvironments of Quaternary Tawil deposits in Ma’an desert, JordanAlhejoj, Ikhlas; Salameh, Elias; Alzughoul, Khitam; Alamaireh, Mazen
      Neues Jahrbuch für Geologie und Paläontologie - Abhandlungen, (2022), p. 243 - 256Abstract This article briefly outlines the geology of aquatic deposits in the Ma‘an desert, which consist of semi-consolidated gypsum layers intercalated by semi-consolidated sandstones, siltstones and mudstones with stromatolitic structures. They were deposited in a periodic river, called the Tawil River, and after that in a pond environment. The Tawil River is incised into the chalky limestone (Um Rijam Chert Limestone Formation, Eocene) and was filled later with cross-bedded sand. In the shallower parts, the river bed sediments dried out and mud cracks have been formed. Muddy deposits of the pond had been penetrated by plant roots, which traces are still quite clearly visible in some places. When the ponds dried out, salts started to precipitate forming crusts of gypsum and halides. Halides became washed away again by the next flood while gypsum remained in solid form. The outcrops are overlain by a recent soil covered by eroded chert fragments of the Um Rijam Chert Limestone Formation. The area has been influenced by tectonic events which can be made responsible for the preservation or disappearance of the river deposits. The Tawil River surrounding and the subsequent ponds had also served for ancient humans as a settlement ground and the hunting area.

      Abstract: Contribution to the knowledge of the rocks hosting the blue pectolite (larimar) deposit in the SW part of the Dominican RepublicWachowiak, Jacek; Natkaniec-Nowak, Lucyna; Rodriguez, Javier; Heflik, Wiesław; George, Carlos
      Neues Jahrbuch für Geologie und Paläontologie - Abhandlungen, (2022), p. 257 - 270Abstract This paper presents the results of investigations on the mafic volcanics (basalts and dolerites) and pyroclastic (tuff) rocks from the Sierra de Bahoruco region, with a special attention to their alteration products. That area is known for its blue pectolite (larimar) deposit. The set of secondary minerals, formed from the parent rocks, is highly diversified and includes natrolite, pectolite, prehnite, calcite, serpentines, clay (chlorite, chlorite/smectite, celadonite), and SiO2 group minerals, as well as magnetite, ilmenite, titanite, rutile, pumpellyite, and garnets (with admixtures of Ti). The majority of those mineral phases were developed in hydrothermal processes, in an environment rich in sodium (Na+) and calcium (Ca2+). The parent effusive rocks were associated with deep tectonic rift zones. The pyroclastic rocks accompanying them seem to be genetically associated with a spilite-type assemblage, which underwent metamorphic changes in the conditions of a low-stage regional metamorphism characteristic of the zeolite facies (200–400 °C).

  • Middle Cenomanian ammonites from the Oberhäslich Formation (Elbtal Group,
           Germany): stratigraphic and palaeogeographic implications for the
           Saxo-Bohemian Cretaceous

      Abstract: Middle Cenomanian ammonites from the Oberhäslich Formation (Elbtal Group, Germany): stratigraphic and palaeogeographic implications for the Saxo-Bohemian CretaceousWilmsen, Markus; Niebuhr, Birgit; Kennedy, William J.
      Neues Jahrbuch für Geologie und Paläontologie - Abhandlungen, (2022), p. 271 - 294Abstract A re-evaluation of the ammonite faunas from the alleged exclusively upper Cenomanian Oberhäslich Formation (Elbtal Group, Saxony) shows that it also contains, in its lower part, several middle Cenomanian taxa such as Acanthoceras rhotomagense (Brongniart, 1822), Acanthoceras jukesbrownei (Spath, 1926a), early forms of Calycoceras (Proeucalycoceras) picteti Wright & Kennedy, 1990, and Calycoceras (Newboldiceras) asiaticum asiaticum (Jimbo, 1894). Thus, ammonite biostratigraphy clearly documents that the Oberhäslich Formation ranges down into the middle Cenomanian, comprising the A. rhotomagense and A. jukesbrownei zones. Apparently, the unequivocal lower upper Cenomanian index fossils well-known from the Oberhäslich Formation (the former Unterquader) predominantly originate from the upper part of the formation that was widely quarried as a freestone in historical times. The new data thus clearly demonstrate that the Oberhäslich Formation consists of two distinct members, middle and early late Cenomanian in age, respectively (the proposed Merbitz and Werksandstein members). Another exclusively lower Cenomanian unit, the Klippensandstein Member, is so far only known from the Niederau-Oberau area in the northwestern part of the Saxonian Cretaceous Basin. The onlap of marine middle Cenomanian strata of the Merbitz Member far onto the Osterzgebirge indicates that the Cenomanian transgression has proceeded a lot earlier much farther southwards than previously thought. Furthermore, the stratigraphic superposition of the marine middle Cenomanian Merbitz Member onto the fluvial Niederschöna Formation clearly demonstrates that the latter strata are evidently early Cenomanian in age, supporting previous palynological data from the Niederschöna Formation that were largely neglected by subsequent authors. Palaeobiogeographically, the Saxonian ammonite assemblage from the Merbitz Member shows similarities to middle Cenomanian acanthoceratine faunas from the historical type area of the Cenomanian Stage in Sarthe, France. In a nutshell, the occurrence of moderately diverse middle Cenomanian ammonite faunas from the lower part of the Oberhäslich Formation to the west and southwest of Dresden shows that the transgression history of the Cretaceous in Saxony is much more complex than hitherto thought.

           Ukraine in the light of European distribution of enchodontid fishes

      Abstract: Records of Enchodus (Teleostei, Aulopiformes) from the Cenomanian of Ukraine in the light of European distribution of enchodontid fishesKovalchuk, Oleksandr; Barkaszi, Zoltán; Anfimova, Galina
      Neues Jahrbuch für Geologie und Paläontologie - Abhandlungen, (2022), p. 295 - 307Abstract Enchodontidae is a family of extinct aulopiform fishes that mainly existed in the Late Cretaceous. Representatives of this diverse group were widely distributed in temperate coastal environments. New records of Enchodus from the Cenomanian of Ukraine are reported, and earlier finds are considered in regard to their taxonomic attribution and geographic distribution. The new records of Enchodus from Kyiv and Malyn are represented by jaw teeth of at least four morphotypes that differ in size and shape of the crown, in the development of cutting edges and sculpture of the outer surface. Considering the high intraspecific variability of jaw teeth, the significant overlap of diagnostic tooth-based characters between different species and other circumstances, the studied material is identified as Enchodus sp. The species Enchodus maximoviczii and E. kioviensis described by A.S. Rogovich in 1870 as new to science based on materials from Kaniv and Kyiv are considered nomina dubia. The earlier attribution of some of the Ukrainian specimens to E. lewesiensis is regarded dubious. Implications for palaeobiogeography and palaeoecology are discussed in the light of European records of Enchodus.
