    Ultimate Eocene (Priabonian) chondrichthyans (Holocephali, Elasmobranchii) of Antarctica2016In: Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology, ISSN 0272-4634, E-ISSN 1937-2809Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    ABSTRACT—The Eocene La Meseta Formation on Seymour Island, Antarctic Peninsula, is known for its remarkable wealth of fossil remains of chondrichthyans and teleosts. Chondrichthyans seemingly were dominant elements in the Antarctic Paleogene fish fauna, but decreased in abundance from middle to late Eocene, during which time remains of bony fishes increase. This decline of chondrichthyans at the end of the Eocene generally is related to sudden cooling of seawater, reduction in shelf area, and increasing shelf depth due to the onset of the Antarctic thermal isolation. The last chondrichthyan records known so far include a chimeroid tooth plate from TELM 6 (Lutetian) and a single pristiophorid rostral spine from TELM 7 (Priabonian). Here, we present new chondrichthyan records of Squalus, Squatina, Pristiophorus, Striatolamia, Palaeohypotodus, Carcharocles, and Ischyodus from the upper parts of TELM 7 (Priabonian), including the first record of Carcharocles sokolovi from Antarctica. This assemblage suggests that chondrichthyans persisted much longer in Antarctic waters despite rather cool sea surface temperatures of approximately 5C. The final disappearance of chondrichthyans at the Eocene–Oligocene boundary concurs with abrupt ice sheet formation in Antarctica. Diversity patterns of chondrichthyans throughout the La Meseta Formation appear to be related to climatic conditions rather than plate tectonics.

    A new large beaver (Mammalia, Castoridae) from the Early Miocene of Japan2016In: Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology, ISSN 0272-4634, E-ISSN 1937-2809Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A new early Miocene large castorid, Minocastor godai gen. et sp. nov., from the Dota locality, Gifu Prefecture in central Japan, is described on the basis of dentaries and teeth. The material comes from the Kani basin, where limnofluviatile clay and sandstones of the Nakamura Formation (Mizunami Group) are exposed on the southern (left) bank of the Kiso River. It represents the richest sample of a Miocene small mammal in the Japanese fossil record thus far known. Based on jaw and tooth morphology, this new castorid most likely represents a primitive anchitheriomyine. However, it lacks the marked striations on the incisors that are characteristic of the advanced large, middle Miocene anchitheriomyines like Anchitheriomys and Amblycastor. The new castorid shares this dental feature with other primitive anchitheriomyines from Asia and North America, like Propalaeocastor, Oligotheriomys, and Miotheriomys. For these genera, a new tribe, Minocastorini, is proposed as sister group to the Anchitheriomyini. The incisor enamel microstructure of the new castorid largely exhibits plesiomorphic characters but also apomorphic features such as pseudo-pauciserial Hunter-Schreger bands. Additionally, the outer portion of the enamel band is rather thick in comparison to that of other beavers. Based on the rodent taxa associated with Minocastor godai gen. et sp. nov., Dota can be correlated with European Neogene mammal units MN 3/4. Magnetostratigraphic studies and radiometric dates obtained from the Mizunami Group indicate that Dota is more likely correlated with MN 3, with an absolute age of around 18.5 Ma.

    New species of Crocuta from the Early Pliocene of Kenya, with an overview of early Pliocene hyenas of eastern Africa2008In: Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology, ISSN 0272-4634, E-ISSN 1937-2809, Vol. 28, p. 1162-1170Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A new species of Crocuta (spotted hyenas), Crocuta eturono n. sp., from the Early Pliocene of the Turkana Basin, Kenya is described. The species has been recovered from LO6S, a site in the Kataboi Member of the Nachukui Formation, on the western side of Lake Turkana. The site is dated to >3.4 Ma. The new species differs from all previously identified species of Crocuta in its length proportions of the cheek teeth, having a very long m1 and short p3 and p4. The species is also tentatively identified from the Tulu Bor Member of the Koobi Fora Formation, east side of Lake Turkana. The new species provides information for a discussion of the structure of the hyena guild in eastern Africa 4–3 Ma. Three groups of taxa are identified with distinct distributions. It is hypothesized that specific ecomorphologies of each group account for these distinctions.
