The aim of the present contribution is to examine the bone histology of two non-mammaliaform cynodonts recovered from the Late Triassic (Carnian) Chañares Formation, at Los Chañares locality, La Rioja province, Northwestern Argentina. The taxa analysed here are the Traversodontidae Massetognathus pascuali and the Probainognathidae Probainognathus j...
Article
The record of sauropods in the Upper Cretaceous of Patagonia is rich. However, there are still several blanks on this record. Here it is described a new sauropod assemblage coming from the Salitral Ojo de Agua Area, Río Negro province, northern Patagonia, Argentina (Allen Formation; Maastrichtian). Remains of indeterminate saltasaurines, aeolosauri...
Article
Abelisaurid theropods are well known in Cretaceous beds along South America, particularly Patagonia. However, the record of latest Cretaceous abelisauroids is still far from satisfactory. Until recently, few taxa were described from Maastrichtian beds: Carnotaurus sastrei and Quilmesaurus curriei, but also perhaps Abelisaurus comahuensis. In this c...

La fauna de planarias terrestres (Tricladida, Geoplanoidea), babosas (Mollusca, Gas tropoda), diplópodos (Myriapoda, Diplopoda), sínfilos (Myriapoda, Symphylla) y arácnidos (Chelicerata) de la Ciudad Autónoma de Buenos Aires (CABA, Argentina) permanece pobremente conocida. En la presente contribución se dan a conocer nuevos registros de especies de...

The Chañares Formation exhibits one of the most important archosauriform records of early Carnian ecosystems. Here we present new data on the palaeohistology of Chañares archosauriforms and provide new insights into their paleobiology, as well as possible phylogenetically informative traits. Bone microstructure of Lagerpeton chanarensis and Tropido...

Aoniraptor libertatem is a mid‐sized megaraptoran that comes from the Late Cretaceous (Turonian) Huincul Formation at Río Negro province, Patagonia, Argentina. In this study, we conducted a detailed analysis of pneumaticity of the sacrum and tail of Aoniraptor . This shows a complex structure within these vertebrae, being composed by small divertic...
Article
We report the first record of the Porto Alegre Golden-eyed Treefrog, Trachycephalus mesophaeus (Hensel, 1867), from Argentina based on a single specimen collected in the 1980s at Las Lomitas, province of Formosa, northeastern Argentina. This new record, within the Chacoan Biogeographical Region, is separated by more than 1300 km from its main range...
Article

The first fossil remains of vertebrates, invertebrates, plants and palynomorphs of the Chorrillo Formation (Austral Basin), about 30km to the SW of the town of El Calafate (Province of Santa Cruz), are described. Fossils include the elasmarian (basal Iguanodontia) Isasicursor santacrucensis gen. et sp. nov., the large titanosaur Nullotitan glaciari...

La presente contribución se centra en la histología ósea de dos ornitópodos antárticos de la Formación Snow Hill Island (Maastrichtiano-Campaniano), Trinisaura santamartaensis y Morrosaurus antarcticus. El objetivo es establecer el estadio ontogenético de ambos taxones, así como determinar si su crecimiento presenta diferencias significativas con f...

Present contribution reports, for the first time, records of Elachistocleis haroi from Santa Fe and Chaco provinces, Argentina. A brief overview of the distribution of previous records of Elachistocleis bicolor in Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay suggests that this species shows a geographical distribution that was more restricted than previously thou...
Article

Globuli ossei are subspherical structures of endochondral origin that are inserted in the hypertrophic cartilage of long bones, and are related to paedomorphic phenomena. These structures are here described for the first time in Aves, concretely in a postcranial bone of an extinct Spheniciformes from Antarctica (Delphinornis arctowskii). Although i...

The fossil record of Late Cretaceous–Paleogene modern birds in the Southern Hemisphere includes the Maastrichtian Neogaeornis wetzeli from Chile, Polarornis gregorii and Vegavis iaai from Antarctica, and Australornis lovei from the Paleogene of New Zealand. The recent finding of a new and nearly complete Vegavis skeleton constitutes the most inform...
Article
Full-text available
Vegavis iaai is a neornithine bird coming from the Late Cretaceous Sandwich Bluff Member of the López de Bertodano Formation (Maastrichtian), Antarctic Peninsula. Vegavis constitutes the only unquestionable Cretaceous neornithine bird, and is known by the holotype and specimen MACN-PV 19.748. The goal of this paper is to present a detailed osteohis...
Article
Full-text available
Lewisuchus admixtus is a basal dinosauriform coming from Late Triassic outcrops of NW Argentina. Although this taxon was recently anatomically restudied, histological data is still wanting. The microstructure of the long bones (femur and two tibie) reveals a relatively fast rate of growth, comparable with that seen in other basal Dinosauriformes an...

Background. The Late Cretaceous is a keystone period to understand the origin and early radiation of Crocodylia, the group containing all extant lineages of crocodilians. Among the taxa described from the latest Cretaceous of Europe, the genus Allodaposuchus is one of the most common but also one of the most controversial. However, because of its f...
