Parataxonomic classification of eggshells from Pui in the Hateg Basin (Romania)

The 7th European Workshop on Vertebrate Palaeontology, Sibiu, Romania, 2-7 July 2002, Abstracts volume and excursions field guide:14.

Examination of forty egg fragments collected from the site of Pui (Hateg Basin) has revealed a greater ootaxonomic diversity that known from complete eggs or clutches found in the other Upper Cretaceous localities from Romania (Grigorescu 1993, Grigorescu et al. 1994; Codrea et al in press). The eggshells obtained by screen-washing, were associated with a diversified microvertebrate remains (including dinosaurs, squamates, mammals…). The egg material correspond to several parataxonomic units (Mikhaïlov et al. 1996) and is referred to 5 morphotypes (discretispherulitic, prolatospherulitic, prismatic, ratite and geckonoid). The study of these ootypes provids us paleogeographical data and clues about the diversity of egg layers in the Campano-Maastrichtian from Romania
