  • Taphonomic bias in collections of horse phalanges from the Barstow
           Formation (Miocene) and Rancho La Brea (Pleistocene) of California, USA

    • Abstract: Isolated equid phalanges are relatively common finds in the Barstow Formation (Miocene, 19 to 13 million years ago, southern California), but anecdotal observations suggested that not all positions (proximal, middle, and distal/ungual) of the primary digit (digit III) are recovered with equal frequency. Our sample includes primarily surface-collected phalanges from the Barstow Formation, which we compare with phalanges of Pleistocene horses from Pit 3 and Pit 77 from Rancho La Brea (Los Angeles, California). The null hypothesis is that the three positions of phalanges should be equally common. Our Barstow sample includes 228 proximal, 151 middle, and 36 distal phalanges. A chi-square test (p<0.001) is consistent with preservation bias in phalangeal frequency for the full Barstow Formation sample, and this pattern generally holds within sub-samples by locality or depositional environment. Pit 3 of La Brea produced 163 proximal, 144 middle, and 103 distal phalanges. A chi-square...

  • Califrapana: a new genus of California and Bája California late Oligocene
           to early Miocene muricids previously attributed to the genus Rapana
           (Mollusca: Gastropoda: Muricidae)

    • Abstract: Califrapana n. gen., is proposed for California late Oligocene to early Miocene muricids attributed previously to the possibly Paleocene to modern western Pacific and Indian oceans genus Rapana. Four fossil species have been assigned to Rapana in the eastern Pacific. One of these species, R. perrini Clark and Arnold (1923), should be placed in another genus, the other species Purpura vaquerosensis Arnold (1907), R. imperialis Hertlein and Jordan (1927), and R. serrai Wiedey (1928) are synonymized here with the morphologically variable species Califrapana vaquerosensis n. comb. We confirm C. vaquerosensis is an index fossil for the lower and middle “Vaqueros” California provincial molluscan stage of late Oligocene to early Miocene age in southern California and Bája California, México, although the lack of numerical dating and the misuse of lithostratigraphic and biostratigraphic names had made that...

  • New remains of middle Miocene equids from the Cajon Valley Formation, San
           Bernardino National Forest, San Bernardino County, California, USA

    • Abstract: New material of three equids is described from the middle Miocene Cajon Valley Formation in San Bernardino National Forest, San Bernardino County, California. The material includes teeth of Archaeohippus mourningi, Scaphohippus sumani, and Parahippus brevidens. Scaphohippus intermontanus is considered a junior subjective synonym of S. sumani. Parahippus brevidens is identified from an upper molar that closely resembles the morphology of the holotype as well as referred specimens of Pa. brevidens from the Mascall Formation in Oregon and the Temblor Formation in California. The presence of Pa. brevidens in the Cajon Valley Formation represents a geographic range extension for the taxon of over 400 km. Interesting ecological implications emerge for the Cajon Valley Formation when compared to the nearby Barstow Formation, including the presence of chalicotheres and apparent lack of Hypohippus affinis...

  • Checklist of California Paleogene–Neogene marine Mollusca since Keen
           and Bentson (1944)

    • Abstract: This checklist is a sequel to the one published by A. Myra Keen and Herdis Bentson in 1944 and is an alphabetical listing of California marine Paleogene–Neogene mollusk species or subspecies described and/or figured in the published literature spanning the interval of 1944 through 2020. The original data are given for each species and subspecies of bivalves, gastropods, chitons (polyplacophorans), scaphopods, and cephalopods. Where detected, formation names, ages, taxonomy, systematics, and specimen disposition were corrected. A total of 559 genera and 1,698 species/subspecies were tabulated, with the bivalves and gastropods being the most abundant taxa. Bivalve and gastropod diversity steadily built up during the Paleocene, nearly doubled during the Eocene warm time, declined greatly during the cool time of the Oligocene, rebounded to its highest peak in the Miocene and then declined slightly during the Pliocene. The other classes represented only minor faunal components. Chitons...

  • New dinosauromorph specimens from Petrified Forest National Park and a
           global biostratigraphic review of Triassic dinosauromorph body fossils

    • Abstract: Dinosauromorph specimens from Petrified Forest National Park have been recovered from four major collecting efforts since 1982, including the most recent paleontological inventory of new park lands acquired in 2011. Additionally, an emphasis on understanding the stepwise acquisition of character traits along the dinosaurian lineage has helped identify previously collected specimens in museum collections. Here we briefly describe and use apomorphies to identify 32 additional dinosauromorph specimens found at Petrified Forest National Park, bringing the total number of dinosauromorph specimens presently known from the park to 50, a 600% increase since the year 2000. These specimens are all Norian in age and come from the Blue Mesa Member, Sonsela Member, and Petrified Forest Member of the Chinle Formation. These include the proximal end of a tibia that represents the oldest unambiguous dinosaur specimen from the Chinle Formation. We then contextualize these specimens with the dinosauromorph...

  • First description of the fossil otolith-based sciaenid, Equetulus
           silverdalensis n. comb., in the Gulf Coastal Plain, USA, with comments on
           the enigmatic distribution of the species

    • Abstract: The fossil otolith-based sciaenid genus Equetulus is known almost exclusively from South America, the Caribbean, and Central America, with the various species ranging in age from the late Oligocene to late Miocene. The only exception to this geographical distribution is the isolated occurrence of Equetulus silverdalensis n. comb. in the Belgrade Formation (latest Oligocene–early Miocene) in the Atlantic Coastal Plain of the USA (North Carolina) and a mention of its occurrence in the Chickasawhay Limestone (late Oligocene) in the Gulf Coastal Plain of the USA (Mississippi). However, sampling of the Paynes Hammock Sand (late Oligocene, Chattian) near Millry, Alabama, USA, resulted in the discovery of an otolith representing the first occurrence of E. silverdalensis in Alabama and the first systematic description of the species from the Gulf Coastal Plain of the USA. These occurrences suggest a potential distribution of this fossil species from Atlantic...

  • Faunal change in Cretaceous endemic shallow-marine bivalve
           genera/subgenera of the northeast Pacific

    • Abstract: Endemic shallow-marine Cretaceous bivalves in the northeast Pacific region (NEP), extending from southwestern Alaska to the northern part of Baja California Sur, Mexico, are tabulated and discussed in detail for the first time. Twenty-three genera/subgenera are recognized. Their first appearance was in the Valanginian, and their biodiversity continued to be very low during the rest of the Early Cretaceous. The bivalves of the middle Albian Alisitos Formation in northern Baja California are excluded because they did not live in the NEP. The highest number (13) of NEP endemic bivalve genera/subgenera occurred during the Turonian, which was the warmest time of the Cretaceous. At the Turonian/Coniacian boundary, when cooler waters migrated southward, there was a moderate dropoff in endemics that persisted until an origination event near the beginning of the early Maastrichtian, when 11 were present. Five of the 11 were present also during the Turonian, but the others were newcomers....

  • A new Lyropecten (Pectinidae, Bivalvia, Mollusca) from the
           central California Miocene, USA

    • Abstract: A new pectinid, Lyropecten terrysmithae n. sp., has been recognized in middle to late Miocene rock units referred to as the Monterey Formation and Santa Margarita Sandstone in the southern Salinas Valley, central California. Previously, L. terrysmithae had been identified as a flat form belonging to either L. estrellanus or L. catalinae, then more recently to Argopecten sp. The earlier assignments were based on its moderate size and a radial rib count nearly identical to these taxa. However, its hinge, flat unledged valves, looped lamellar growth lines, and hinge crura set L. terrysmithae apart from Argopecten and all species of Lyropecten. Localities where it occurs in the Salinas Valley that can be accurately dated are from the late middle to middle late Miocene “Margaritan” California provincial molluscan stage. While L. terrysmithae has been collected at other sites, those localities lack diagnostic...

  • Epiplastral and geographic variation in Echmatemys, a geoemydid turtle
           from the Eocene of North America: A multi-tiered analysis of epiplastral
           shape complexity

    • Abstract: Numerous geoemydid turtle fossils from the extinct genus Echmatemys have been recovered from the middle Eocene Uinta Formation, Uinta Basin, Utah over the past several decades. Here, we tested whether co-occurring Uintan species Echmatemys callopyge and E. uintensis can be reliably differentiated based on epiplastral morphology, and whether their geospatial distributions overlapped significantly. The geographic spatial and stratigraphic distributions of Uinta Basin E. callopyge and E. uintensis specimens were compared using ArcGIS and analysis of variance (ANOVA). The analysis revealed overlapping geographic distributions of these two species, and no significant differences in stratigraphic dispersal. This finding of extensive geospatial overlap between the two Uintan Echmatemys species highlights the need for accurate taxonomic identification, such as the gular scale morphology validated here. In addition, we sought to address...
