Article
Cyclidans are an extinct group of crustaceans whose fossil remains are very rare in the geological record. Cyclidans are full of mysteries: it is still impossible to find their exact place on the taxonomic tree; we still know nothing about their ancestors and why they had disappeared. In total, nowadays only 54 species of these ancient animals are...
Article
A new genus and species of cyclidan Magnitocyclus struveae gen. et sp. nov., from the Mississippian of the Urals is described and illustrated. It is the first reliable record of a cyclidan in the Upper Viséan-Lower Serpukhovian of Russia. Petschorocaris kozhimensis, from the Permian of the Pechora Coal Basin (Russia), is not a cyclidan but is appar...

The Devonian–Carboniferous boundary beds in the Berchogur (Birshogyr) sections in the Mugodzhary (Mugalzhary) Mountains in western Kazakhstan, known to contain various fossil groups, including ammonoids, conodonts, foraminifers, corals, crinoids, and trilobites, are re-examined. The siliciclastic-carbonate succession of the Zhangana Formation revea...
Book
Full-text available
The book describes the geology and paleontology of the Kaliningrad region from the Precambrian to the present day. An important place is given to the stratigraphy of the region and the description of the paleogeographic settings of different geological eras. Erratic boulders and the fossils present in them, inclusions in the Baltic amber, a complex...

Ferruginous sands and sandstones of the “krant ground” exposed on the northern coast of the Sambia Peninsula of the Kaliningrad Region (Russia), were formed in the coastal conditions of the shelf of the northern of the Danish-Polish Strait in the second half of the Priabonian of the Late Eocene. The dinocyst assemblage of the deposits indicates tha...
Article
Forty-seven rock samples from the stratotypes of upper Paleogene formations - Prussian, Palvé and Kurshskaya formations – are collected from the biggest amber deposit worldwide (Primorsky quarry, Kaliningrad oblast, SE Baltic coast), and have been palynologically analyzed. The presence of age-diagnostic dinoflagellate species has allowed us to refi...

Malayacyclus terengganuensis, a new genus and species of the Cyclida (Crustacea), is reported from the Early Carboniferous (Visean) of Terengganu, eastern Peninsular Malaysia (East Malaya Block). The new genus possesses diagnostic features of both families Cyclidae and Americlidae. Plus, it develops the trifurcate posterior spines: a unique morphol...

Four new brachyuran species, assigned to two new genera and one existing genus, are recorded from Lower and Upper Cretaceous strata of Moscow Oblast (Moskovskaya Oblast) and Dagestan, Russia. Three new taxa, Personadorippe levashiensis gen. et sp. nov., Levashidromites cornutus gen. et sp. nov. and Vectis collinsi sp. nov., were recovered from Apti...
Article

Kaliningrad Oblast, the westernmost region of Russia, is rich in paleontological finds. A special place among them is occupied by unique fossils — inclusions in amber. Although the first data about fossil organisms in the amber of the region have been known since the middle of the 19th century, Baltic amber remains still an insufficiently studied “...

All cyclidan species represented by existing material are illustrated photographically. New genera within Cyclidae include Ambocyclus new genus; Carabicyclus new genus; Chernyshevine new genus, Litocyclus new genus; and Tazawacyclus new genus with the following new combinations: A.). A neotype is herein designated for Halicyne plana. Each family wi...
Article
Remains of a fossil cetacean, belonging to the family Basilosauridae, are for the first time found in the territory of the Baltic States. This finding is represented by a large vertebra and comes from the Late Eocene amber-bearing "Blue Ground" bed of the Sambia Peninsula in the Kaliningrad Region. The described fossil expands our knowledge on pale...

The characteristic and ground of early Carboniferous (Mississippian) reefal locality Akkermanovka-Khabarnoe in the “Centralny” Quarry, southern Orenburg Region (South Urals) as fossil lagerstätt of the “concentrate” type are given. The bioherm limestones contain nicely preserved brachiopods, corals, trilobites, cyclids, rostroconchs, polyplacophora...

Within the crustacean group Cyclida, Prolatcyclus gen. nov. includes two species, Prolatcyclus martinensis (Goldring, 1967) and P. kindzadza sp. nov., described from the Lower Carboniferous (Mississippian, upper Viséan) of England and the Southern Urals of Russia, respectively. Members of the genus have a unique feature for cyclids – large hypertro...

The Mechetlino Quarry section is a potential candidate for the Global Section Stratotype and Point (GSSP) for the base of the Global Kungurian Stage on the International Stratigraphic Chart. In 2017, the Mechetlino Quarry section became the part of the First Geopark in Russia, therefore excavation work was carried out to clear it, a road was laid,...
Article
Full-text available
The most western region of Russia, Kaliningrad oblast, is very rich in paleontological findings. Their first scientific descriptions are traced into the works of European scientists of the mid XIX century. Many of the picked by them collections were apparently lost during the Second World War. However, several specimens recently were found in some...
Article
New specimens of trilobites from the Lower Permian limestone reef Shakhtau (Sterlitamak, Bashkortostan, Russia) are described as Brachymetopus (Conimetopus) alekseevi Mychko, sp. nov. Although represented by a limited number of specimens, the new species is significant in extending the stratigraphic distribution of the subgenus Brachymetopus (Conim...

Two new finds of crab’s carapaces of Coeloma balticum Schl ter, 1879 from the Upper Eocene of the Sambia Peninsula of the Kaliningrad Region are described. A list of all known crabs from the Eocene of Sambia on topical taxonomic data is given. For the first time published a photograph of the holotype of C. balticum, as well as the surviving specime...

Циклиды (Cyclida) представляют собой необычных ископаемых ракообразных, просуществовавших с раннего карбона по меловой период (Dzik, 2008). В связи со своей редкостью, а находки циклид, как правило, единичны, они являются малоизученной группой беспозвоночных. В 1997 г. Ф. Шрам с соавторами (Schram et. al., 1997) классифицировали циклид как сестринс...

As a result o...
