How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Bruce Lauer currently works at the Paleontology, Lauer Foundation. Their most recent publication is 'A new holomorphic specimen of the rare holocephalian fish, Chimaeropsis paradoxa, from the Late Jurassic Plattenkalk of Germany'.
The hybodont shark, Hybodus hauffianus FRAAS, 1895 is well established on the basis of multiple well preserved and articulated specimens from the Posidonienschiefer (Toarcian, Early Jurassic) of the Holzmaden-Ohmden region of Baden-Württemberg in southern Germany, but has not so far been recorded from outside the type area. A partial skull includin...
The ichnotaxon Chimaerotheca schernfeldensis nov. isp. is established here for holocephalian egg cases from the Plattenkalk (Altmühltal Formation, Tithonian, Late Jurassic) of the Solnhofen/Eichstätt area of southern Germany, including the first ever double case of a holocephalian described from the fossil record. The egg capsules measure up to 400...
The lithographic limestone succession in SW Germany includes the lagerstätten of Nusplingen and the Solnhofen areas. The holocephalian faunas from these two centres include isolated tooth plates and dorsal fin spines, as well as minimally disarticulated holomorphic specimens showing high fidelity preservation; members of both the Myriacanthiformes...
Ultraviolet Induced Fluorescence Digital Photography is a useful diagnostic tool for discovery, digital documentation, analysis and curation of palaeontological specimens.

The use of UV photography is a valuable diagnostic tool for improved visualization of rarely seen data such as soft tissue preservation and fine structures in the invisible light spectrum of paleontological specimens. This enhanced visual data is of particular importance to the study and documentation of the bulk of our collection of Solnhofen lime...
AN ASSOCIATED DENTITION OF AGASSIZODUS (CHONDRICHTHYES, EUGENEODONTIFORMES) FROM THE UPPER CARBONIFEROUS OF MISSOURI DUFFIN, Christopher, Surrey, England; WARD, David J., Orpington, United Kingdom; LAUER, Bruce H., Wheaton, IL, United States of America; LAUER, Rene L., Wheaton, IL, United States of America The Lauer Foundation for Paleontology, Sc...
Chimaeropsis paradoxa is a myriacanthoid chimaeriform fish (family Chimaeropsidae) from the Late Jurassic Plattenkalk of Eichstätt in Bavaria, described from a single specimen by Karl Alfred von Zittel in 1887. The material was never adequately figured, and the unique holotype was destroyed in World War II. A holomorphic specimen of the fish, sligh...
