      Abstract: The first Procercopidae (Insecta: Hemiptera) from the Jurassic Sangonghe Formation of northwestern ChinaZhang, Qian-Qi; Chen, Jun; Zhang, Hai-Chun
      Palaeontographica Abteilung A, (2022), p. 117 - 124AbstractAbstract: A new genus and species, Longucercopis xinjiangensis gen. et sp. nov., is established and assigned to the froghopper family Procercopidae based on a well-preserved tegmen from the Lower Jurassic Sangonghe Formation in Haojiagou-Toutunhe section, Urumqi, Xinjiang, NW China. The new taxon is unique in having a slender tegmen (length/width near 4.0:1) with narrow appendix, crossvein mp-cua2connected to vein MP much basal of rp-mp and ir, and cua-cup long. A key to genera of Procercopidae is provided, and the phylogenetic position of Longucercopis gen. nov. in Procercopidae is also discussed.

  • The early Pleistocene aquatic palaeoecolgy in Central Java, Indonesia as
           recorded in mollusc assemblages from the Puren and Sangiran layers of the

      Abstract: The early Pleistocene aquatic palaeoecolgy in Central Java, Indonesia as recorded in mollusc assemblages from the Puren and Sangiran layers of the Sangiran DomeFaylona, Marie Grace Pamela G.; Sémah, Anne-Marie; Sémah, François; Lozouet, Pierre; Adityas, Metta
      Palaeontographica Abteilung A, (2022), p. 125 - 152AbstractThis study explores quantitative patterns recorded in mollusc assemblages with the goal of elucidating the palaeoenvironmental reconstruction, and the relationship between the established palaeodatasets of analysis and the levels of variability in palaeontological data. Mollusc fossil assemblages obtained from the Upper Puren to the Lower Sangiran layers of the early Man Site, Sangiran Dome in Central Java, Indonesia were analyzed by using bulk samples that were collected from the different facies of the dome which were deposited during the early Pleistocene.A total of 58,216 specimens from 18 samples were collected from the Blue Clay Puren, Corbicula Bed, Lower Lahar, and Black Clay Sangiran. All specimens were identified up to the genus level with a total of 61 mollusc taxa, which were further classified in terms of their ecology. These samples were then subsequently analyzed using ecological statistics methods. Specimens were compared based on the overall composition and taxa abundances, as well as the autoecological investigation of their life habit, substrate preference, depth range, and the ecological implication of the assemblagesThe Puren mollusc assemblage exhibits generally similar overall composition and ecological marine structure with those that inhabited the soft bottom sublittoral zone. This assemblage contained predominant species of the family Arcidae (Anadara sp., Arca sp. and Arcopsis sp.) and the genus Turritella sp. (Turritellidae) suggesting the development of a shallow body of water in Central Java of the Sunda arc around 2 million years ago (Ma). Species from the Corbicula Bed assemblages, characterized by the presence of numerous Corbicula, contained shell species that originated from both freshwater and marine environment. Mollusc assemblages from the Lower Lahar and Black Clay Sangiran were pure freshwater shells. The examined mollusc assemblages in the Lower Sangiran were associated with marine and swampy coasts and lotic ecosystems with landward flowing waters indicating landmass deposits. Their presence characterizes the start of marine episodes linked to shift in regression and continental lacustrine environments, and counterparts of Pleistocene glacials/interglacials and volcanic activities within the last 2 Ma. These lines of evidence suggest that the molluscan diversity in Sangiran Dome in Central Java is associated with sub-environmental diversity of the localities with patterns likely resulting from a combination of ecological, environmental, and taphonomic processes.Overall, this study illustrates the usefulness of fossil shells obtained from Sangiran Dome. Species richness of mollusc assemblages is useful in tracing the environment and its sequence of early Pleistocene succession of the Sangiran Dome in Central Java. The changing environment has resulted in significant shifts in the density and distribution of Sangiran molluscs as revealed by the assemblages that were deposited on the different facies of Puren and Sangiran layers. The approach provides a narrative of the relevant transformation of the aquatic ecology in Sangiran Dome. It also elucidates the sources of variability on paleontological patterns.

  • Organic-walled sub-fossil invertebrate remains (non-pollen palynomorphs)

      Abstract: Organic-walled sub-fossil invertebrate remains (non-pollen palynomorphs) from the Mid-Late Holocene (~5 kyrs) sediments of Lake Hazar (Eastern Anatolia, Turkey); implications for lake level changesÖntürk, Tuğrul; Kutluk, Hatice
      Palaeontographica Abteilung A, (2022), p. 153 - 181AbstractNon-Pollen Palynomorphs (NPP) recorded in palynological slides of the sediments of Lake Hazar, Eastern Anatolia were investigated in this study. Radiocarbon datings revealed that the studied interval covers a time span of the last ~5 kyrs corresponding to Mid- to Late Holocene. Non-biting midges (Chironomidae, Diptera) constituted 39.3 % of the total amount of remnants. Midges recorded were representatives of Tanypodinae, Chirominae and Orthocladiinae subfamilies. Specimens grouped under worm-like particles (HZR-12, 18 and 21) were found as the second abundant group with 30.6 %. An unknown morphotype (HZR-11, bone-like structures) and testate amoebae each constituted 9.8 % and HZR-14, 15, 19 and 20 (?Rotifera) 2.7 %. Based on absolute and relative abundance of these groups, the studied interval was delineated into three zones; ZI, ZII and ZIII. It was suggested that, after Mid-Holocene climatic optimum, the shallowest lake level existed between ~4.8–4.3 kyrs B.P. in Zone I due to the onset of cold and arid climatic conditions in the area. Low lake levels may have been repeated in Zone II (~3.5−2.9 kyrs B.P.) and Zone III (~1.4−0 kyrs B.P.) but were not as effective as in Zone I. Changes in the hydrological regime of the lake during the Zones II and III might have been due to climatic variations and/or changes in tectonic regime and that can be resolved with further studies.

      Abstract: A revision of the genus Crocuta (Mammalia, Hyaenidae)Lewis, Margaret E.; Werdelin, Lars
      Palaeontographica Abteilung A, (2022), p. 1 - 115AbstractThe genus Crocuta evolved in Africa no later than 4 Ma and dispersed from that continent between 2.5 and 2 Ma. At its peak in the late Pleistocene, Crocuta had a geographic distribution that encompassed most of the Old World, except for the northernmost parts of Siberia. Herein, we describe new material of Crocuta from Africa, review the fossil record of the genus in the rest of the world, and revise its species-level taxonomy on the basis of metric and morphological data. We conclude that the genus comprises at least seven extinct species in addition to the extant C. crocuta and that the fossil record includes a number of transitional specimens that cannot be classified to species. Extinct African species are C. venustula (synonyms: C. dietrichi, C. dbaa; early Pliocene – early Pleistocene), C. ultra (early – middle Pleistocene), and C. eturono (late Pliocene). Asian species are C. honanensis (early Pleistocene) and C. ultima (middle – late Pleistocene), possibly with an unnamed species in the early Pleistocene of India and Pakistan. European species are C. intermedia (middle Pleistocene) and C. spelaea (middle – late Pleistocene).

      Abstract: Chuanblatta gen. nov. sexually dimorphic cockroaches of Raphidiomimidae (Blattaria) from the Jiulongshan Formation in ChinaLiang, Junhui; Wang, Ying; Shih, Chungkun; Ren, Dong
      Palaeontographica Abteilung A, (2022), p. 3 - 17AbstractSix different families of predatory cockroaches have been reported hitherto for Blattaria. Among which the most distinct was the Raphidiomimidae spreading from the Early Jurassic to the Late Cretaceous. Up to date, seven genera and ten species of raphidiomimids have been documented worldwide, among which four genera with five species from the Middle Jurassic Jiulongshan Formation of Daohugou, China. Herein, we describe Chuanblatta huntianlingensis Liang, Wang, Shih et Ren gen. et sp. nov. and C. lata Liang, Wang, Shih et Ren gen. et sp. nov. from the same locality to highlight their sexual dimorphism that males with elongate forewings were statistically distinguished from females with relatively broad and round forewings. Furthermore, males had tergal glands for providing nuptial nutrition and both sexes bore distinctly raptorial forelegs and large subapical teeth and series of lateral and terminal teeth on mandibles, which are autapomorphies within Raphidiomimidae. Together with other 530 similar specimens in our collections, not covered in this study due to lack of preserved sexual organs or forewing length/width ratios, these Chuanblatta Liang, Wang, Shih et Ren gen. nov. cockroaches provided clear indication of strong dominance among all predatory cockroaches.

      Abstract: An isolated Cretaceous analogue of Madagascar on the Adria–Turkey microcontinent indicated by fossils in Brezina, AlgeriaVršanský, Peter; Vršanská, Lucia; Vasilenko, Dmitrij V.; Puškelová, Ľubica; Biroň, Adrian
      Palaeontographica Abteilung A, (2022), p. 19 - 35AbstractA unique assemblage of arthropods (n = 32), ferns, horsetails and a ginkgo discovered in Algerian Brezina differs from all known (and rather uniform) Laurasian and Gondwanan Cretaceous biotas, suggesting a large isolated landmass at the microcontinent known as Adria-Turkey, Serbia-Turkey or “Greater Adria”. The mineral assemblage is characteristic for siliciclastic sediments which underwent deep post-depositional burial and reached late diagenetic conditions of alteration. The ?Hauterivian assemblage of aquatic and terrestrial insects was dominated by cockroaches and beetles. Mantodean, tettigarctid cicad, aquatic ephemeropterans, dragonflies, spinicaudatan, and an arachnomorph spider also occur. Freshwater insects relate to Eurasian ones such as the beetle Timarchopsis cyrenaicus (Ponomarenko, 1977) and mayfly Hexameropsis africana Sinitshenkova, 1975 or belong to cosmopolitan biota as a dragonfly pre-imaginal stage (Aeschnoidea, ?Gomphaeschnidae). The continental biota differed. Cockroaches except Elisama Giebel, 1856, praying mantis and possibly also dragonfly genera were mostly indigenous and distant from the known morphotypes. The extinct family Mesoblattinidae (represented by Otazka systematicka gen. et sp. n., Meloblatta brezinica gen. et sp. n.) and the still-extant Corydiidae (Afrophaga extincta gen. et sp. n.) dominated. The Mesozoic families Blattulidae (? Elisama algeriaensis sp. n.) and Liberiblattinidae (Kriedoblatta gondwanensis gen. et sp. n. and ? Kurablattina samsonovi sp. n. restricted record in Early Jurassic of Australia), and Holocompsinae (Sajda equatorialis gen. et sp. n.) restricted to Spain during Cretaceous and also represented by extant forms were also present. The dominant Laurasian Caloblattinidae and Gondwanan (and burmite) Alienopteridae were not preserved or absent.

      Abstract: New cockroach assemblage from the Lower Cretaceous Kitadani Formation, Fukui, JapanOyama, Nozomu; Yukawa, Hirokazu; Imai, Takuya
      Palaeontographica Abteilung A, (2022), p. 37 - 52AbstractDespite nearly global occurrence of cockroaches in the Cretaceous, such fossil record had been absent in Japan. Here, we describe the first Cretaceous cockroach assemblage of Japan from the Lower Cretaceous of Fukui, central Japan. The assemblage includes Praeblattella inexpecta sp. n., Praeblattella arcuata sp. n., Petropterix fukuiensis sp. n., ?Vitisma sp., and ?Morphna sp. from the Aptian–Albian Kitadani Formation, Tetori Group. The Cretaceous Praeblattella-Petropterix-Vitisma assemblage in the Kitadani Formation is comparable to those in the Dzun-Bain Formation of Bon Tsagaan Nuur, Mongolia, and the Zaza Formation of Baissa, Russia, while being in contrast to the one in the Yixian Formation of Liaoning, northeastern China. It may indicate that such assemblages typify the cockroach fauna adapted to shifting humidity conditions. Additionally, ?Morphna sp. from the Kitadani Formation represents the earliest record of the family Blaberidae. The present study facilitates our understanding about the global distributions of the diverse Cretaceous cockroaches in Laurasia and adjacent areas.

      Abstract: A new species of Pabuonqedidae (Blattaria: Mastotermitoidea) from mid-Cretaceous Kachin amberSong, Zhenyu; Xu, Chunpeng; Li, Jingxia; Jarzembowski, Edmund A.; Wang, Bo; Xiao, Chuantao
      Palaeontographica Abteilung A, (2022), p. 53 - 59AbstractPabuonqedidae is the most recently erected extinct family of Blattaria, with only a type genus and species reported from the Cretaceous. Pabuonqed magna sp. n., based on a well-preserved specimen from mid-Cretaceous Kachin amber, can be definitely attributed to the genus, but differs from the type species, Pabuonqed eulna Vršanský, 2019, mainly by large body size, filiform bases on antennae, smaller, round eyes, standard pronotum (all plesiomorphies), absence of arolium on mesotarsus (autapomorphies), developed R and narrow cubitus in forewing, and developed Sc and R in hindwing. As the second species of Pabuonqedidae, our new find provides more information on the phylogenic position of Pabuonqedidae and augments the biodiversity of the Cretaceous wood-boring and/or rotten wood-burrowing mole roaches.
