(Again, sorry for the mess-up with the recent triple post of free non-dino papers. Usually, if a post doesn't show up in a half hour in one of my email accounts, I assume it's been blocked for some reason. It happens...)


Some recent items:

Fossil of the Month (June) for the Bayerische Staatssammlung fÃr PalÃontologie und Geologie (in German)

Rauisuchus, skeleton of a pseudosuchian
Skelettreste eines Scheinkrokodiles Rauisuchus tiradentes von Huene, 1938

http://www.palmuc.de/bspg/images/pdf/fos2018/flyer_juni.pdf


Also, older free pdf in English:

Stephan Lautenschlager Â& Oliver W. M. Rauhut (2015)
Osteology of Rauisuchus tiradentes from the Late Triassic (Carnian) Santa Maria Formation of Brazil, and its implications for rauisuchid anatomy and phylogeny.Â
Zoological Journal of the Linnean Society 173(1):55-91
doi:Â https://doi.org/10.1111/zoj.12196
https://academic.oup.com/zoolinnean/article/173/1/55/2453081

**

The species name tiradentes means "tooth puller" (tirar + dentes "extract teeth") in Portuguese. I don't have access to the original description by von Huene but the fossil came from "Sanga Tiradentes,"Âor "Zahn Sanga" "tooth sanga [stream]" in German, the nickname for the site with fossil quarries.Â


[Note as well that "Joaquim Jose da Silva Xavier, also known as Tiradentes (Tooth Puller), was the leader of the first organized movement against Portuguese rule in Brazil in 1789."
