Article
An incomplete ‘mummy’ from the Phosphorites du Quercy (presumed Eocene) was identified as a salamander during the 19th century. The specimen has now been computed tomography (CT) scanned, and this revealed the incomplete skeleton (with perfectly preserved bones) and soft tissues (lung). The fossil represents a new, wellcharacterized taxon. Despite...

Fossils are almost always represented by hard tissues but we present here the exceptional case of a three-dimensionally preserved specimen that was 'mummified' (likely between 40 and 34 million years ago) in a terrestrial karstic environment. This fossil is the incomplete body of a salamander, Phosphotriton sigei, whose skeleton and external morpho...

Amynodontidae is a family of Rhinocerotoidea (Mammalia, Perissodactyla) known from the late Early Eocene to the latest Oligocene, in North America and Eurasia. European Amyno-dontidae are very rare, and all remains belong almost exclusively to a single post-Grande Coupure genus from the Oligocene, Cadurcotherium. The "Grande Coupure" defines an ext...
Article
Full-text available
Reduction of the anterior dentition (i.e. incisors and canines) is a major adaptative trait of the Rhinocerotidae among Perissodactyla. However, the corresponding evolutionary sequence was lacking a robust phylogenetic frame to support it thus far. Here, we describe a new Oligocene species of Rhinocerotinae, Mesaceratherium sp. nov. from the Swiss...

Ronzotherium is one of the earliest Rhinocerotidae in Europe, which first appeared just after the Eocene/Oligocene transition (Grande Coupure), and became extinct at the end of the Oligocene. It is a large-sized rhinocerotid, with a special position in the phylogeny of this group, as being one of the earliest-branching true Rhinocerotidae. However,...

Article
The fossiliferous locality of Rickenbach (SO) is particularly well known as the reference locality of the mammal level MP29 (Late Oligocene, ca. 23.5 million years) of the European mammalian biochronology. The revision of the specimens of Rhinocerotidae housed in the Olten natural history Museum has permitted to describe for the first time the asso...

Amynodontidae are an extinct family of Rhinocerotoidea known from the Middle Eocene to the latest Oligocene. Amynodontidae had an important diversification during the Middle and Late Eocene in North America, in Asia and in Eastern Europe. Their presence in Western Europe is dated from the Oligocene and is related to the the “Grande Coupure” event....
Article
The early middle Miocene (European Land Mammal Zone MN5-earliest MN6) locality Gračanica (Bugojno Basin, Bosnia-Herzegovina) has yielded numerous well-preserved dental remains of two Anchitheriinae species: Anchitherium hippoides and Anchitherium ezquerrae. This anchithere assemblage is typical of the Orleanian European Land Mammal Age and is recor...

About a century ago, in 1909, the paleontologist Hans Georg Stehlin described, based on the European mammalian fossil record, “the greatest and most sudden change known so far during the tertiary times”. He underlined the correlation of this terrestrial event to the Eocene/Oligocene boundary and named it “Grande Coupure”. Recently, a biostratigraph...

Background: Wischberg is a Swiss locality in Bern Canton which has yielded numerous vertebrates remains from the earliest Miocene (= MN1). It has a very rich faunal diversity, one of the richest in Switzerland for this age. Among all the mammals reported in the original faunal list 70 years ago, three rhinocerotid species were identified. The mater...

The early middle Miocene (European Land Mammal Zone MN5) locality Gračanica (Bugojno Basin, Bosnia-Herzegovina) has yielded numerous well-preserved dental remains of four Rhinocerotidae species: Brachypotherium brachypus, Lartetotherium sansaniense, Plesiaceratherium balkanicum sp. nov. and Hispanotherium cf. matritense. This rhinocerotid assemblag...

New specimens of rhinocerotids including a complete skull of Diaceratherium asphaltense and a series of associated dental and postcranial elements of D. aginense and Pleuroceros pleuroceros have been discovered in two localities of the Swiss Molasse Basin: Bühler (?latest Oligocene-earliest Miocene, Canton Appenzell-Ausserhoden) and Sous le Mont (E...

[English] The preparation of a Rhinocerotid mandible from the Late Oligocene molassic deposits of Éclépens region (canton of Vaud, Switzerland) allowed an attribution of the specimen to Mesaceratherium cf. gaimersheimense. This occurence, which is only the second one in Switzerland, perfectly fits the Late Oligocene European Rhinocerotid assemblage...

Perissodactyls are one of the major groups affected by the Grande Coupure event (Eocene-Oligocene transition) in Europe. Palaeotheriidae went almost extinct during this crisis, whereas Rhinocerotidae appeared for the first time in Europe after this biogeographical event. Knowledge on fossiliferous Eastern-European localities around this period is c...

The objective during this postdoc will be to refine the phylogenetic relationships of the Rhinocerotoidea by using new anatomical characters from the petrosal bone, to understand their diversity dynamics through time.

The Faluns Formation (Blaisois, Pontlevoy–Thenay Basin; Touraine, Savigné-sur- Lathan Basin; Anjou Doué-la-Fontaine Basin) is mainly composed of Langhian and Vallesian marine sand deposits (MN5 and MN9). It is famous for its paleontological content. No less than 58 species of mammals indicating European Neogene Mammal Unit MN5 are currently known from the Faluns, which are clearly distinct from older and reworked specimens (eroded, broken, darker colour), characteristic for MN2 (“calcaire de Beauce” For- mation), MN3, and MN4 (“sable de l’Orléanais” formation), or even extremely rare dinosaur remains, which can be found there as well. However, recent reassesment hilighted numerous eroneous attributions in the literature at the species and genus level for these fossils. In the frame of this project we propose to reassess all the animals (mainly mammals) present in these deposits. Each clade will be studied by a group of specialists of the taxa to better understand the faunal diversity of the falun.
