Trento Platform (N Italy). Preliminary Report. Studi Trent.
Sci. Nat., Acta Geol. 73:75-80.
Batch of dinosaur footprints. Short note.
And now earlier comments on nomenclatural stuff that what was mentioned last
Comments on the proposed designation of Iguanodon...(see last time).
Bull. Zoological Nomenclature 55(3):172.
Comments by David Norman and Angela Milner in support of suggestion by Charig &

Maisch, M.W. & A.T. Matzke. 1998. Observations on Triassic
ichthyosaurs. Part IV. On the forelimb of Mixosaurus Baur, 1887.
N. Jb. Geol. Palaont. Abh. 209(2):247-272.
Humerus similar to other primitive ichthyosaurs but retains a rather
terrestrial look. Discusses intraspecific and ontogenetic variation. Humerus
closest to Utatsusaurus and Parvinatator and is very basal ichthyosaurian.
Evans, S.E. & L.J. Barbadillo. 1998. An unusual lizard (Reptilia:
Squamata) from the Early Cretaceous of Las Hoyas, Spain.
Zool. J. Linnean Society, 124:235-265.
Describes a new form from Las Hoyas - a neat outcrop near Cuenca, Spain - a new
genus and species Scandensia ciervensis that seems to be the sister taxon to
living squamates. Neat.
Gardin, S. & S. Monechi. 1998. Palaeoecological change in
the middle to low latitude calcareous nannoplankton at the
Cretaceous/Tertiary boundary. Bull. Soc. Geol. France,
Nice, detailed discussion of calc nannos across the boundary with big shift and
only a few reworked beasts found above. Nice review. I love palaeoecology - any
word with 4 vowels in a row can't be all bad.
This was probably mentioned but...
Ryan, M.J. & P.J. Currie. 1998. First report of
protoceratopsians (Neoceratopsia) from the Late
Cretaceous Judith River Group, Alberta, Canada.
Canadian J. Earth Sciences, 35:820-826.
Still finding new stuff in that well studied group. Batch of elements that
appear to be protoceratopsian and are in the middle Campanian (Dinosaur Park
Formation) of Alberta. Dentaries described and assigned to Leptoceratops sp.
Nice review of North American protoceratopsians.
And now one that has been mentioned. I have an inquiry in as to how to order
copies and will share the info when it comes in.
Brinkman, D.L., R.L. Cifelli & N.J. Czaplewski. 1998. First

Theropoda) from the Antlers Formation (Lower Cretaceous:
Aptian - Albian) of Oklahoma. Oklahoma Geological
Survey, Bulletin 146:27 p.
Material associated with 3 partial skeletons of Tenontosaurus. Includes
material from most regions of the body and seems to be a subadult.

That's enough for now. More shortly...
