    We provide a thorough re-evaluation of the taxonomic diversity, phylogenetic relationships, and historical biogeography of the lambeosaurine hadrosaurids from the European Archipelago. Previously published occurrences of European Lambeosaurinae are reviewed and new specimens collected from upper Maastrichtian strata of the south-central Pyrenees are described.

    Friday Oct 10 | CiteULike

    ABSTRACT Aristonectes parvidens Cabrera, 1941, and Morturneria seymourensis , two plesiosaurs from the Maastrichtian of South America and Antarctica whose phylogenetical position is controversial, are reviewed and found to be congeneric and conspecific. Most differences between the two type specimens are interpreted as related to ontogenetic growth: Morturneria is based on an immature, whereas Aristonectes is based on an adult, probably an old individual.

    Friday Oct 10 | CiteULike

    Several hundred disarticulated dinosaur bones have been recovered from a large quarry at Wulaga , in the Upper Cretaceous Yuliangze Formation. The Wulaga quarry can be regarded as a monodominant bonebed: more than 80% of the bones belong to a new lambeosaurine hadrosaurid, Sahaliyania elunchunorum gen.

    Four main dinosaur sites have been investigated in latest Cretaceous deposits from the Amur/Heilongjiang Region: Jiayin and Wulaga in China , Blagoveschensk and Kundur in Russia . More than 90% of the bones discovered in these localities belong to hollow-crested lambeosaurine saurolophids, but flat-headed saurolophines are also represented: Kerberosaurus manakini at Blagoveschensk and Wulagasaurus dongi at Wulaga.

    Friday Oct 10 | CiteULike

    'Glishades ericksoni', an indeterminate juvenile hadrosaurid from the Two Medicine Formation of Montana: implications for hadrosauroid diversity in the latest Cretaceous of western North America Glishades ericksoni was named on the basis of partial paired premaxillae collected from the Late Campanian Two Medicine Formation of Montana, and was described as a non-hadrosaurid hadrosauroid. This interpretation of G. ericksoni has significant implications for hadrosauroid diversity and distribution because it represents the first occurrence of a non-hadrosaurid hadrosauroid in the Late Campanian of North America, and therefore implies either a prolonged period of sympatry between these forms and hadrosaurids or a biotic interchange with Asia.

    New hadrosaurid material is recorded from Fontllonga , in the Catalonian Pyrenees, comprising a dentary with part of the dental battery, recovered from Late Maastrichtian strata , close to the presumed Cretaceous/Tertiary boundary. This hadrosaurid is more derived than is Telmatosaurus transsylvanicus from the Hateg Basin , but lacks a number of features that diagnose the clade Hadrosaurinae plus Lambeosaurinae.

    The occurrence of Saurolophus from the Moreno Formation of California is investigated and an incomplete, poorly preserved, skull is described. The skull lacks the braincase and much of the nasals, and the preserved portions are crushed or plastically deformed, which makes anatomical interpretations difficult.
