Book Reference A new microvertebrate fauna from the Middle Hettangian. (Early Jurassic) of Fontenoille. (Province of Luxembourg, south Belgium)
Deze samenvatting is niet beschikbaar in het Nederlands. Abstract A new microvertebrate fauna from the Middle Hettangian (early Jurassic) of Fontenoille (Province of Luxembourg, south Belgium). A Lower Jurassic horizon from Fontenoille yielding fossil fish remains can be dated to the Middle Hettangian Liasicus zone on the basis of the early belemnite Schwegleria and the ammonite Alsatites laqueus francus. Hybodontiform sharks are represented by Hybodus reticulatus Lissodus sp., Polyacrodus sp, and Neoselachians by Synechodus paludinensis nov. sp. and Synechodus streitzi, nov. sp. Earlier reports of a scyliorhinid are not confirmed: teeth of similar morphology to scyliorhinids seem to be juvenile variants of S. paludinensis. Chimaeriform remains include Squaloraja sp., the earliest occurrence of the genus. The Actinopterygian fauna is introduced, comprising a palaeonisciform cf. Ptycholepis, a possible late perleidiform cf. Platysiagum, the dapediid semionotiforms Dapedium and cf. Tetragonolepis, the pycnodontiform Eomesodon, halecomorphs cf. Furidae or Ophiopsidae, pholidophoriforms and/or Leptolepididae, and actinistians. Lepidosaur remains are also present. Résumé Une nouvelle faune de microvertébrés de l'Hettangien moyen (Jurassique inférieur) de Fontenoille (Province de Luxembourg, Belgique méridionale). Le gisement hettangien de Fontenoille a fourni les bélemnites précoces Schwegleria et l'ammonite Alsatites laqueus francus, permettant de l'attribuer à la zone à Liasicus de l'Hettangien moyen. Les Hybodontiformes sont représentés par Hybodus cf. reticulatus, Lissodus sp, Polyacrodus sp, les Néosélaciens Synechodus paludinensis nov. sp. et Synechodus streitzi nov. sp. ; les Scyliorhinidae originellement signalés ne sont pas confirmés, mais on considère la morphologie scyliorhinide comme une variante juvénile possible de l'espèce S. paludinensis. Les chimères sont également présentes avec Squaloraja sp, l'occurrence la plus ancienne du genre. La faune d'Actinoptérygiens est brièvement présentée, comprenant un palaeonisciforme cf. Ptycholepis, un possible perléidiforme tardif cf. Platysiagum, des sémionotiformes Dapediidae Dapedium et cf. Tetragonolepis, le pycnodontiforme Eomesodon, des Halecomorphi cf. Furidae ou Ophiopsidae, des pholidophoriformes et/ou des Leptolepididae, ainsi qu' un Actinistia. On relève également la présence d'un reptile lépidosaure.

Article Reference A new species of Archaeoryctes from the Middle Paleocene of China and the phylogenetic diversification of Didymoconidae
Didymoconidae are an enigmatic group of Asian endemic insectivorous mammals. We describe the new didymoconid species Archaeoryctes wangi sp. nov. from the Upper Member of the Wanghudun Formation (Middle Paleocene). This new species from the Qianshan Basin (Anhui Province, China) forms an interesting geographical intermediate between A. notialis from South China and A. borealis and A. euryalis from the Mongolian Plateau. To better understand the origin and evolutionary diversification of Didymoconidae, we performed a cladistic and stratocladistic study of the Didymoconidae and various outgroups. This study of dental material did not resolve the higher level affinities of Didymoconidae, but confirms the validity of the family and its distinctiveness from the morphologically similar Sarcodontidae. Moreover, our results corroborate the current didymoconid classification with the distinction of three subfamilies: “Ardynictinae”, Kennatheriinae and Didymoconinae; “Ardynictinae” are a paraphyletic stemgroup for the two other subfamilies. Our results suggest three distinct didymoconid radiations: (1) primitive ardynictines appeared in South China from the start of the Nongshanian; their evolution continues on the Mongolian Plateau with (2) the radiation of more evolved ardynictines and kennatheriines at the start of the Middle Eocene Arshantan and (3) the origin of didymoconines at the start of the Late Eocene Ergilian.
