A New Morphological Phylogeny of the Ophiuroidea (Echinodermata) Accords with Molecular Evidence and Renders Microfossils Accessible for Cladistics

Author(s) : Ben Thuy, Sabine Stöhr Source : Plos One, Published: May 26, 2016, http://dx.doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0156140 Abstract : Ophiuroid systematics is currently in a state of upheaval, with recent molecular estimates fundamentally clashing with traditional, morphology-based classifications. Here, we attempt a long overdue recast of a morphological phylogeny estimate of the Ophiuroidea taking into account latest.. Lire la suite

Coleoid cephalopods in the European Mesozoic: Systematics, evolution and paleobiogeography of fossil coleoids

pr4 Keuppia hyperbolaris

Coleoidea is a subclass of the invertebrate class Cephalopoda and typified nowadays by squids, cuttlefish and octopods. During Mesozoic times, another group of coleoids dominated the seas: the belemnites. We found evidence that the fossil coleoid fauna from Luxembourg plays a key role in the evolution of cephalopods. Our daily work includes morphological analyses and.. Lire la suite

The Hettangian to earliest Sinemurian gastropods from Luxembourg: Systematics and palaeobiogeography of the gastropods housed in the collections of the MnhnL

pr3 800px-VALENTINI_Mara_Gasteropodes_003

With its collection of almost 500 specimens, the MnhnL houses one of the worldwide richest Hettangian-Sinemurian gastropod faunas. The gastropods from Luxembourg have been uncovered mainly from the Luxembourg Sandstone Formation, a sand waves and bars complex deposited on a shallow marine shelf under tidal-deltaic environmental conditions. The fauna comprises both families and genera of.. Lire la suite

Fossil vertebrates in Luxembourg, Palaeontology and Anthropology. From fish to humans, from the Devonian to the Mesolithic

pr2 711px-DELSATE_Dominique_Vertebr_002

Our research aims at investigating and describing the fossil vertebrates of the Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg and adjacent regions (SE Belgium, Lorraine), preserved in public and private collections or recently excavated. The Emsian strata yield agnathan, ostracoderm and porolepiform fishes, the Muschelkalk dolomites provide sharks and fishes, the Upper Triassic Keuper marls yield amphibians, fishes, pterosaur..

Early Devonian fossils from Eislek and Eifel

pr1 ES375 trilobiteWiltz shales

Systematic studies and paleogeographic conclusions The fossil records from lower Devonian of the Eislek hadn’t been reviewed since E. Asselberghs in the 1912. The knowledge of the different fossil groups didn’t progress since and the statements on paleogeographical and paleoenvironmental topics were therefore quite meagre or restricted to some points. The actual, long-term project, focuses.. Lire la suite
