New papers:

Hovurlestes noyon gen. et sp. nov.

ÂA. V. Lopatin & A.O. Averianov (2018)
New stem placental mammal from the Early Cretaceous of Mongolia.
Doklady Akademii Nauk 478(1): 117-120 [Proceedings of the Russian Academy of Sciences] (in Russian)
DOI: 10.7868/S0869565218010243Â

[very rough translation of abstract (with a bit of Google translate); this paper will probably get an official English translation in the Doklady journals (Biological Sciences or Earth Sciences)]

A new taxon of stem placental mammals, Hovurlestes noyon gen. et sp. nov., is described, from the Early Cretaceous of Mongolia (Khovur location). The new taxon differs from members of the genus Prokennalestes from Khovur in having a single-root fang and the presence of a tubercle e, which enhances the interdental traction between the anterior molars (m1 and m2). Hovurlestes noyon gen. et sp. nov. is one of the very rare mammal taxa in Khovur, increasing the morphological diversity of the earliest Eutheria.

noyon means "prince"Â ("prince robber from Khovur")
