  • Reply to: “Insects with 100 Million-Year-Old Dinosaur Feathers are not
           Ectoparasites” and “Crawlers of the Scale Insect Mesophthirus
           (Homoptera Xylococcidae) on Feathers in Burmese Amber—Wind Transport or
           Phoresy on Dinosaurs'”

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: We described ten nymph specimens of an insect, Mesophthirus engeli (incertae sedis), from the mid-Cretaceous Myanmar (Burmese) amber, preserved together with partially damaged dinosaur feathers. Based on the ectoparasitic morphological characters of these tiny insect nymphs, we concluded that Mesophthirus engeli was the earliest known feather-feeding insect and that integument-feeding behaviors of insects appeared during or before the mid-Cretaceous along with the radiations of feathered dinosaurs including birds. Grimaldi and Vea raised some concerns about these feather-feeding insects and supposed that the nymphs of Mesophthirus engeli were crawlers of scale insects, i.e. nymphal stages of Coccoidea, coincidentally co-occurring with damaged feathers. Shcherbakov (2022, this issue) accepted and developed the argumentation of Grimaldi and Vea (2021). We would like to address their concerns here.

  • On Gigantism in Early Carboniferous Brachiopods of the Order Chonetida

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Giant brachiopods, including representatives of the order Chonetida, appeared in the second half of the Tournaisian and in the Viséan (Early Carboniferous). Based on known gigantism in extant organisms, the origin of this phenomenon can be associated with the maximum of a large Early Carboniferous transgression, which caused deepening of marine basins and a decrease in the temperature of the bottom water layers.

  • Late Bajocian and Early Bathonian Ostracods of the Russian Plate. Part II.
           Genera: Procytherura Whatley, Pseudohutsonia Wienholz, Acrocythere Neale,
           Nanacythere Herrig and Trachycythere Triebel et Klingler

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This paper contains refined and extended descriptions of two ostracod genera of the family Cytheru-ridae: Pseudohutsonia Wienholz, 1967 and Procytherura Whatley, 1970, based on material from the Upper Bajocian (Michalskii ammonite Zone) and Lower Bathonian (Besnosovi ammonite Zone) of the Russian Plate from the Sokur composite Section (Saratov Region) and from the Obval Borehole (Penza Region). The genus Pseudohutsonia is revised and the evolution of two parallel lineages in the Middle Jurassic is proposed. Five stratigraphically significant ostracod species are described. For Pseudohutsonia clivosa (Khabarova, 1955), a neotype is designated herein; four others, Procytherura iyae, Acrocythere sokurensis, Nanacythere octum, and Trachycythere peculiaris, are described as new. For four taxa identified in open nomenclature (Nanacythere sp. 1, N. sp. 2, Ljubimovella sp. 1 and Gen. et sp. 8), information on the material and distribution in the studied sections is given, which will facilitate their use for stratigraphy and correlation in the future.

  • Feulgen Testing of the Nuclei of Leaf Cells of Taxodium dubium
           (Cupressaceae) from the Eocene Tavda Flora of Western Siberia

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The article presents the results of studying the tissues of the leaf phytoleim of the fossil Taxodium dubium from the Eocene Tavda flora of Western Siberia. Feulgen testing showed the preservation of Feulgen-positive, heterogeneously stained nuclear structures and small granular chromocenters in the cells. The nuclei were red–violet-stained and chromocenters were stained more intensely. This indicates the occurrence of aldehyde groups of deoxyribose in the nuclear chromatin and demonstrates the specific presence of DNA. Additional staining of the preparations with alcian blue and Ehrlich’s hematoxylin displays cell walls and the adjacent intracellular material.

  • On the First Finding of Soergelia minor (Artiodactyla, Bovidae) in the
           Lower Pleistocene of Taurida Cave in the Crimea and the History of the
           Genus Soergelia

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The study of the fossil remains of Caprinae (horn core, upper and lower jaws), found in 2020 in the Lower Pleistocene deposits of the Taurida Cave in the Crimea, revealed their belonging to Soergelia minor Moya-Sola, 1987. These fossils are the first evidence of the genus Soergelia Schaub, 1951 in Eastern Europe. S. minor occurred in the Early Pleistocene in the south of Western Europe and was found in the Crimea for the first time. The findings of Soergelia in Taurida are important for clarifying features of the evolution and distribution of the genus.

  • Early Evolution of Beetles of the Suborder Polyphaga (Insecta: Coleoptera)
           at the Permian–Triassic Boundary

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: A brief overview of the research history of the early stages of Polyphaga evolution is given. Reasons for the unparalleled evolutionary success of Polyphaga, which allowed them to become the dominant suborder from the Early Cretaceous to the present time, is analyzed on the basis of published data. Morphology of early findings of crown group beetles (family Ademosynidae, genera Archosyne Ponomarenko et al., 2014 and Ponomarenkium Yan et al., 2018) from the Middle and Late Permian and Triassic (family Peltosynidae) are evaluated morphologically, and their key apomorphies are highlighted. Phylogenetic hypotheses based on molecular analysis, which aimed at reconstructing the appearance and lifestyle of the earliest Polyphaga, are evaluated. Basal branching is shown in Polyphaga, which produced a wide spectrum of forms, no less than in other infraorder-level taxa of Holometabola, and helped them to survive three out of the five mass extinctions of Phanerozoic.

  • Crawlers of the Scale Insect Mesophthirus (Homoptera: Xylococcidae) on
           Feathers in Burmese Amber—Wind Transport or Phoresy on Dinosaurs'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Mesophthirus engeli (Mesophthiridae incerti ordinis), described as a feather-feeding parasite of dinosaurs, has recently been reinterpreted as an early instar nymph (crawler) of a primitive scale insect. Mesophthirus has no specific similarities to bird lice, although life on feathers should modify parasites in a similar way. Based on re-examination of photographs of the type specimens of M. engeli, the subfamily Mesophthirinae stat. nov. is assigned to the archaic extant family Xylococcidae s.l. (recorded since the Hauterivian), next to the extant subfamilies Xylococcinae and Stigmacoccinae. Xylococcid honeydew is an important food resource for birds and other arboreal vertebrates. Like their modern relatives, Mesophthirinae lived under the bark of trees and produced copious honeydew. Early birds and their precursors, small feathered dinosaurs, may well have fed on honeydew and the mesophthirines themselves. Scale insect crawlers are adapted to wind transport and phoresy on insects and vertebrates, so finding Mesophthirus on feathers is expected.

      Abstract: — A new conodont species Icriodus olgaborisovnae sp. nov. is described from the Upper Eifelian Mosolovian Regional Stage of the Voronezh Anteclise on the basis of material from four boreholes. Previously, similar forms were identified as I. arkonensis Stauffer, 1938; however, the studies showed that the true I. arkonensis occurs in later rocks, in the Vorobyevian Regional Stage of the Givetian Stage of the Middle Devonian.

  • Disturbance of Organizational Equilibrium during the Change of Ancient
           Tetrapod Communities: Its Manifestations at the Middle–Late Permian
           Transition

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The evolutionary transition of a living organization to a new stable state begins with the disturbance of its previous equilibrium and, thus, with an increase in organizational disorderliness. The study of the traces of such disturbances was conducted based on the change of terrestrial vertebrate communities during the transition to the Mesozoic. It has been shown that the most common among such traces are the following: (a) “precocious” emergence of future dominants; (b) “Lazarus”-effect, i.e. return to the fossil record of previously disappeared forms; (c) the emergence of “disaster taxa”; and (d) the effect of “archaic diversity”. An analysis of the early phase of this transition (Middle Permian crisis), recorded in the Sundyr tetrapod fauna of Eastern Europe, shows that any kind of disturbance in the organization of a community may be equally a symptom of other typical violations as well. In particular, the precocious appearance of amphibian groups characteristic of the Late Permian—dvinosaurids and chroniosuchids—implies, along with this, the “Lazarus”-effect in the first case and the emergence of a “disaster taxon”, along with the effect of archaic diversity—in the second. The possibility of revealing similar symptoms of equilibrium disturbance in some other Middle Permian faunas is considered.

  • Review of Information on Eocene Entomopathogenic Hypocreales (Ascomycota)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: A single cordycipitoid fungus on a bark louse in Baltic amber and the scars of a death-grip from an ant infected by cordycipitoid fungus on a leaf from Messel, are known from the Eocene. Findings of cordycipitoid fungi on a tiger beetle in Rovno amber and on a “Camponotus” ant in Baltic amber were not confirmed. Ants of the genus Camponotus s. l. are not known from the early and middle Eocene; therefore, the taxonomic position of the Ypresian ant hosts of cordycipitoid fungi cannot be determined with confidence. This paper discusses some aspects of the evolution of entomopathogenic fungi of the order Hypocreales.

      Abstract: Remains of cladosperms attributed to Cycadales and described as Dioonitocarpidium rossicum sp. nov. were found in the Kazanian of the Russian Platform. They confirm the presence of Cycadales in the Permian of the Subangara Region, previously suggested by finds of vegetative leaves. The significance of Dioonitocarpidium as a possible initial form in the evolution of the Cycadales in the Mesozoic and Cenozoic is discussed.
