The article focuses on the locality of early cretaceous mammals. Topics discussed include dark gray sands, interbedding of light gray sandy silts and interbedding of reddish brown clayey silts with calcareous clay balls. It mentions that mammal association of the Zuun-Höovör locality includes eutriconodonts Gobiconodon borissiaki Trofimov.

    Paranyctoides aralensis, based on a partially known set of lower postcanines from the Turonian Bissekty Formation of Uzbekistan, is proposed to be a junior subjective synonym of Sailestes quadrans, itself based on an M1 from the same stratigraphic unit. As a result, the latter taxon is...

    Although the known record of Mesozoic eutherian mammals has been significantly enriched in recent years, early eutherian evolution is still not well understood. Among the more controversial of Mesozoic eutherians is Paranyctoides Fox, which was described in 1979 from the Judithian Dinosaur Park...

    The kaolinite from Albian sedimentary deposits (Escucha and Utrillas Formations) of the Iberian Range (Spain) have been investigated. This research has shown the presence of different types of kaolinites (detrital and diagenetic) along with micaceous phases in these deposits. Detrital kaolinites...
