New refs 25

And now a batch of new references*

First some fossil bird (avian dinosaurs) papers for those interested *

Field, J.H. & W.E. Boles. 1998. Genyornis newtoni and Dromaius
   novaehollandae at 30,000 b.p. in central northern New South
   Wales. Alcheringa, 22:177-188.

Baird, R.F. & P. Vickers-Rich. 1998. Palaelodus (Aves: Palaelodidae)
   from the Middle to Late Cainozoic of Australia. Alcheringa,

Worthy, T.H. 1997. The identification of fossil Eudyptes and
   Megadyptes bones at Marfells Beach, Marlborough, South
   Island. New Zealand Natural Sciences, 23:71-85.

Next we have another paper from the productive Spencer G. Lucas.

Lucas, S.G. 1998. The aetosaur Longosuchus from the Triassic of
   Morocco and its biochronological significance.
   C.R. Acad. Sci., Earth & Planetary Sciences, 326:589-594.

Scute stuff, Late Carnian.

Next a new lizard from the Las Hoyas Lower Cretaceous of Spain*
Just got here despite the older publication date. The lizards
Meyasaurus and Illerdaesaurus from other Spanish outcrops turn
Out to be the same beast. The former  was based on a body and the
Latter a skull. New Las Hoyas material shows they go together.

Evans, S.E. & L.J. Barbadillo. 1996. The Early Cretaceous lizards
   Of Montsec (Catalonia, Spain). Treb. Mus. Geol. Barcelona,

Now, a new mammal*

Maschenko, E.N. & A.V. Lopatin. 1998. First record of an Early
   Cretaceous triconodont mammal in Siberia. Bull. de L*Institut
   Royal des Sciences Naturalles de Belgique, Sciences de la Terre,

Lower jaw of Gobiconodon borissiaki.

And now the biggie, apparently part of an upcoming series  edited by Pierre 
Bultynck and Annie V. Dhondt on the Sino * Belgian dinosaur expeditions to 
inner Mongolia. We*ll stay tuned for more.

Godefroit, P., Z. Dong, P. Bultynck, H. Li & L. Feng. 1998.
   Sino-Belgian Cooperation Program *Cretaceous Dinosaurs and
   Mammals from Inner Mongolia*. 1. New Bactrosaurus 
   (Dinosauria: Hadrosauroidea) material from Iren Dabasu
   (Inner Mongolia, P.R. China). Bull. de L*Institut
   Royal des Sciences Naturalles de Belgique, Sciences de la Terre,

Material from a rich bonebed discovered in 1995. Clarifies the anatomy of the 
taxon, shows it*s a definite flat-head. Suggests that the Hadrosauroidea is 
definitely monophyletic with 11 synapormophies and that B.j. is the most basal 
member of that clade. Nice, big paper.

That*s it for now,
