Dinosaur egg nests, mammals and other vertebrates from a new Maastrichtian site of the Hateg Basin (Romania)

Comptes Rendus Palevol, 1:173-180.

About ten dinosaur nests of large megaloolithid-type eggs have been discovered in the new Maastrichtian locality of Tote¸sti-baraj (Ha¸teg Basin, Romania). This is the largest dinosaur egg nest site discovered in Romania. Teeth and other micro-remains of vertebrates such as hadrosaurs, ankylosaurs, theropods, lizards and amphibians are associated with the eggs in the sediments, reflecting the great biodiversity of the Ha¸teg Basin during the Maastrichtian. But the most remarkable collected micro-remains are teeth of mammals representing at present the richest multituberculate collection from the Upper Cretaceous of Europe.
