Re: archaic ungulates survive boundary events



<<I showed the Science paper to a couple of mammal specialists who were
neither impressed nor convinced. It's only part of a single tooth that they
say is not very distinctive.>>

For my money, not that I've got much of that stuff, the exciting news from
Upper Cretaceous India this year is a new locality; Kisalpuri (new for
mammals at least).  That matters because it's 700 km north of previously
sampled (mammalian) localities.  That distance of 700 km could well contain
more presently unknown fossil sites, and my information is that this
possibility is being intensively investigated.
