  • Diatoms in the Orgueil Meteorite
    • Abstract: We report the discovery of frustules of pennate diatoms embedded in a freshly fractured interior surface of the Orgueil CI1 carbonaceous meteorite. Images and element composition by Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy were obtained with the TESCAN VEGA 3 Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) in the Astrobiology Sector of the Laboratory of Radiation Biology of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research in Dubna, Russia. The distribution of chemical elements as shown by Energy Dispersive X-Ray Spectroscopy (EDS) and 2-D element maps show no detectable nitrogen. Hence the diatoms are interpreted as indigenous to the Orgueil meteorite and therefore have direct implications to the existence of extraterrestrial life; and the hypothesis of Panspermia.

  • A New Species of Paraseraphs (Gastropoda, Seraphsidae) from the Priabonian
           White Limestone Formation of Jamaica
    • Abstract: The Paraseraphs Jung 1974 is an extinct group of gastropods that existed during the Late Paleocene and Eocene of Europe and the Caribbean. P. cantamessae sp. nov. is described; it differs structurally from its sympatric sister taxon and spatiotemporally from other members of the clade.

  • New Data on Ornithischian Dinosaurs from the Late Jurassic of
           Transbaikalia, Russia
    • Abstract: Three species of ornithischian dinosaurs (Daurosaurus olovus, Kulindapteryx ukureica, and Kulindadromeus zabaikalicus) from the Jurassic Kulinda locality (Transbaikalia, Russia) have been described. Kulindadromeus zabaikalicus was established on erroneous assumption that the locality contains only one dinosaurian taxon. The characters used in the diagnosis of this species, which were registered by the holotype (imprint of bones of an incomplete distorted skull on the rock surface), cannot be treated unequivocally from the morphological point of view.

  • On Possible Trophic Adaptations of Some Rhytidosteidae (Amphibia,
    • Abstract: Temnospondyl amphibians of the family Rhytidosteidae were widespread in the Early Triassic in the Southern Hemisphere. New records in southeastern European Russia show that the type genus of the family, Rhytidosteus, was widespread in this region of Laurasia. The analysis of morphology of these specimens confined to the Late Olenekian continental deposits of the southern Cis-Urals and Buzuluk Depression and examination of accompanying ichnofossils suggest that the original structure of the skull and jaw apparatus in representatives of this genus (and probably other rhytidosteids) is connected with specific trophic adaptation, i.e., feeding on invertebrates with a rather firm armor (for example, freshwater crustaceans).

  • New Data on Early Triassic Lonchorhynchids (Amphibia, Temnospondyli) of
           Eastern Europe
    • Abstract: The family Lonchorhynchidae is considered to comprise at least two subfamilies, Cosgriffiinae (Cosgriffius Welles and a form from the Zaplavnian Horizon (Upper Induan Substage) of the Buzuluk Depression (Shishkin, 2002)) and Lonchorhynchinae (Aphaneramma Woodward, Wantzosaurus Lehman, and a form described by Damiani and Welman (2001) from the Lystrosaurus Zone of South Africa). In addition, the Lonchorhynchidae are considered to include the genera Erythrobatrachus Cosgriff et Garbutt and Stoschiosaurus Säve-Söderbergh, the subfamily of which is presently uncertain. A new lonchorhynchid specimen from the Zaplavnian Horizon of the Buzuluk Depression is described, the postorbital structure of which suggests that it may belong to Stoschiosaurus.

  • Lungfish (Dipnoi) Burrows from the Triassic of the Southern Cis-Urals
    • Abstract: Burrows of lungfishes are found for the first time in the Lower and Middle Triassic deposits of the Southern Cis-Urals. A preliminary description of these burrows and comparison with burrows of freshwater crustaceans are provided. Newly obtained paleoichnological data expand our knowledge of Triassic continental communities and abiotic conditions in Eastern Europe.

  • Pterygotid Eurypterids from the Upper Silurian of Podolia (Ukraine)
    • Abstract: Fossil remains of the pterygotid eurypterid Pterygotus sp. were found in the early 1990s in the Upper Silurian of the Velika Slobidka locality (Podolia, near Kamianets-Podilskyi, Khmelnitskyi Province, Ukraine). The collection studied includes two well-preserved coxae and sternites I–II (including operculum and genital appendage). Judging from the size of the larger coxa, the length of this pterygotid was more than one meter.

  • New Stage of Recovery of East European Tetrapod Community after
           Permian–Triassic Crisis
    • Abstract: New data on the taxonomic composition and comparison of the tetrapod assemblage from the Upper Sukhorechenskaya Subformation of the Buzuluk Depression of the East European Platform, previously described as “Selenocara–Syrtosuchus fauna,” are provided. This assemblage is dated Late Induan (Dienerian) and characterizes a new stage in recovery of East European tetrapod community after the Late Permian extinction, which is intermediate between the Tupilakosaurus and Benthosuchus faunas. Beyond Eastern Europe, a similar amphibian association is known from the Anodontophora fassaensis Zone (upper part of the Wordie Creek Formation) of eastern Greenland.

  • New Data on Permian Bivalves and the Age of the Volcanogenic Beds of the
           Arman-Viliga Folded Zone, Northeastern Asia
    • Abstract: Taxonomic data on Permian bivalve mollusks and the structure of the middle part of essentially volcanogenic section on the Nyavlenga River in the northeastern Okhotsk Region, Armano-Viliga Folded Zone are reported for the first time. Fossil fauna is composed exclusively of Inoceramus-like bivalves of the genera Kolymia, Cigarella, Okhotodesma, and Maitaia, which frequently form shell rocks and date the Bocharian Horizon (upper part of the Wordian Stage) as the Middle Permian. Lithologic and paleontological characteristics of the beds are considered; it is shown that volcanites are widespread; turbidites and diamictites similar to those previously investigated in the Okhotsk and Ayan-Yuryakh basins are recorded. Permian kolymiids are figured.

  • Morphology of the Petrosal in Late Miocene Baleen Whales of Northwestern
    • Abstract: Morphological features of the membranous labyrinth in extinct and extant baleen whales and their ancestors are discussed. The tomography of the membranous labyrinth of two species of Late Miocene baleen whales from Adygea has shown that Kurdalagonus, Zygiocetus, and Cetotherium have a comparable number of cochlear turns with representatives of herpetocetins, i.e., about three turns. Representatives of the genus Kurdalagonus differ from Zygiocetus in the structure of semicircular canals, the longer crus commune (much shorter in Zygiocetus), and in the size of the ampulla of the lateral semicircular canal. In addition, representatives of the genus Kurdalagonus differ from Zygiocetus and Cetotherium in the structure of the round window, which is much wider and has a more rounded shape.

  • Bristle Scale As a Predecessor of Protofeather and Feather
    • Abstract: The bristle scale is a skin appendage recognized in the ornithiscian dinosaurs Daurosaurus olovus and Kulindapteryx ukureica from the Kulinda locality (Transbaikalia, Russia). Morphologically, the bristle scale is a horn plate immersed in the dermis, with strands (bristles) diverging from its external edge. It is assumed that the filamentous protofeather of dinosaurs is the monobristle variant of the bristle scale and avian feather results from its tubular spatial modification. The bristle scale is considered to be intermediate between the reptilian scale and avian feather.

  • In the Memory of Academician E.I. Vorobyeva and Professor L.V. Belousov
    • Abstract: The conference “Morphogenesis in individual and historical development: ontogeny and formation of biological diversity, 2017,” as well as the collective volume presented here, are dedicated to the memory of two eminent, recently deceased biologists: Academician Emilia Ivanovna Vorobyeva and Professor Lev Vladimirovich Belousov. They were at the forefront of organizing a series of conferences on morphogenesis, and made a great contribution, albeit in different aspects, to evolutionary developmental biology. The deaths of Emilia Ivanovna and Lev Vladimirovich are a great loss for participants of the conferences on morphogenesis and for biological science in general.

  • Algebraic Geometry of Icosahedral Viruses
    • Abstract: In previous papers, the author has shown that the polyhedral structures of fullerene type are widespread in the living and mineral worlds. They are most clearly manifested in the capsids of icosahedral viruses, the geometry of which has been well studied. This article demonstrates that the nomenclature, classification, and potential transformations of these polyhedral structures can be succinctly described by means of matrix algebra.

  • Upper Eocene Bivalves from Dnepr, Ukraine: Crassatellidae
    • Abstract: In the second part of the monograph, bivalves of the family Crassatellidae from the Upper Eocene Mandrikovka Beds of Dnepr (former city of Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine) and its environs are described. The family Crassatellidae is represented by 25 species, 21 of which were established by the author. These species belong to the genera Crassatella (Crassatella) (seven species), Crassatella (Furvusa subgen. nov.) (one species), Crassatella (Bathytormus) (five species), Crassatina (Crassatina) (four species), Crassovella gen. nov. (four species), and Chattonia (three species). All of these taxa are described and provided with figures of type species. Species are figured in 15 plates. These taxa are mostly established on the shell material from the Upper Eocene beds exposed by the Rybalsky quarry in the city of Dnepr. Valves belonging to the new genus Crassovella and new subgenus Crassatella (Furvusa) come from the same beds. Three out of 25 species are described from a core of the same age, which was obtained during drilling in the vicinity of Dnepr (near the towns of Sinel’nikovo and Kamensky and the village of Vasil’kovka).

  • New Data on Enosuchid Anthracosauromorphs (Amphibia) of the Middle–Late
           Permian of European Russia: Part 1. Morphology of Enosuchus breviceps
           Konzhukova, 1955
    • Abstract: Cranial morphology of the type species of the genus Enosuchus, E. breviceps Konzhukova, 1955, is reexamined in detail based on the holotype and previously undescribed specimens from the type locality (Isheevo; Tatarstan, Russia; uppermost Urzhumian). E. breviceps is distinguished from known anthracosauromorphs by the intense osteogenesis of the dermal and endocranial bones, well developed surface ornamentation, the absence of the intertemporal, expanded interorbital region, and very massive quadrate.

  • Late Pleistocene Mammals of the Northwestern Altai: Report 1. Anui Basin
    • Abstract: Based on the taxonomic composition of taphocoenoses of the main Paleolithic sites of the Anui River Basin within the northwestern Altai Mountains, the structure of mammal communities and potential composition of bioresources of the prehistoric man are reconstructed. It is shown that the basis of communities was composed of medium- and large-sized ungulates, including the Siberian ibex, argali, bison, and horses. A constant and important component of communities was the woolly rhinoceros. The following antelopes are regularly recorded in the Anui Basin: dzeren (Mongolian gazelle) and saiga. Roe deer and Asiatic red deer dwelt everywhere. The Asiatic red deer played a twice greater role than the roe deer as prey of humans. The major elements of communities and main competitors of humans were large carnivores, hyena and wolf. The main competitors in using caves were bear and hyena.
