58 p, 15.8 MB An overview of the late Miocene vertebrates from the fissure fillings of Monticino Quarry (Brisighella, Italy), with new data on non-mammalian taxa / Villa, Andrea (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Carnevale, Giorgio (Università degli Studi di Torino. Dipartimento di Scienze della Terra) ; Pavia, Marco (Università degli Studi di Torino.

Polish Academy of Sciences) ; Delfino, Massimo (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont)
The latest Messinian Monticino Quarry fissure fillings, near Brisighella in Italy, are well known for their diverse mammal fauna. Conversely, little is known about other vertebrates from this rich site. [...]

38 p, 1.9 MB Phylogenetic value of jaw elements of lacertid lizards (Squamata: Lacertoidea): a case study with Oligocene material from France / Wencker, Lukardis (Università degli Studi di Torino) ; Tschopp, Emanuel (Università degli Studi di Torino) ; Villa, Andrea (Università degli Studi di Torino) ; Augé, Marc Louis (Muséum National d'Histoire naturelle) ; Delfino, Massimo (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont)
Several extinct species are known from the family Lacertidae, but due to poor preservation, many of them are based on single bones. Here, we compare phylogenetic signals of disarticulated premaxillae, maxillae and dentaries of lacertids from four French Oligocene localities (Coderet, La Colombière, Roqueprune 2, Mas de Got B).

52 p, 4.4 MB Fossil amphibians and reptiles from Tegelen (Province of Limburg) and the early Pleistocene palaeoclimate of The Netherlands / Villa, Andrea (Università degli Studi di Torino. Dipartimento di Scienze della Terra) ; Blain, Hugues-Alexandre (Universitat Rovira i Virgili. Institut Català de Paleoecologia Humana i Evolució Social) ; Van Den Hoek Ostende, L.W. (Naturalis Biodiversity Center (Holanda)) ; Delfino, Massimo (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont)
Few Quaternary herpetofaunas have been recovered from The Netherlands. Among these, the one coming from the early Pleistocene site of the Russel-Tiglia-Egypte pit near Tegelen is of particular interest, because it is the type locality of the recently described, last western European palaeobatrachid anuran, Palaeobatrachus eurydices.

78 p, 7.6 MB Comparative cranial osteology of European gekkotans (Reptilia, Squamata) / Villa, Andrea (Università degli Studi di Torino. Dipartimento di Scienze della Terra) ; Daza, Juan D. (Sam Houston State University. Department of Biological Sciences) ; Bauer, Aaron M (Villanova University. Department of Biology) ; Delfino, Massimo (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont)
Comparative osteology of European lizards, and of European geckos in particular, is poorly known, resulting in problems when trying to determine to species isolated bones found as fossils or as remains of prey in scats or pellets. [...]

33 p, 3.4 MB The Early Pleistocene herpetofauna of Rivoli Veronese (Northern Italy) as evidence for humid and forested glacial phases in the Gelasian of Southern Alps / Villa, Andrea (Università degli Studi di Torino. Dipartimento di Scienze della Terra) ; Blain, Hugues-Alexandre (Universitat Rovira i Virgili. Institut Català de Paleoecologia Humana i Evolució Social) ; Delfino, Massimo (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont)
Among the Early Pleistocene Italian fossil herpetofaunas, Rivoli Veronese is remarkable in having yielded the youngest known allocaudates, represented by Albanerpeton pannonicum, together with remains of other amphibians and reptiles. [...]

54 p, 2.1 MB Structural and environmental constraints on paired appendages reduction among vertebrates / Macaluso, Loredana (Università degli Studi di Torino. Dipartimento di Scienze della Terra) ; Carnevale, Giorgio (Università degli Studi di Torino. Dipartimento di Scienze della Terra) ; Casu, Raffaello (Università degli Studi di Torino. Dipartimento di Fisica) ; Pietrocola, Daniel (Università degli Studi di Torino. Dipartimento di Scienze della Terra) ; Villa, Andrea (Università degli Studi di Torino. Dipartimento di Scienze della Terra) ; Delfino, Massimo (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont)
Burrowing habits or complex environments have generally been considered as potential drivers acting on reduction and loss of the appendicular skeleton among vertebrates. Herein, we suggest that this might be the case for lissamphibians and squamates, but that fin loss in fishes is usually prevented by important structural constraints, because pectoral fins are commonly used to control rolling and pitching.

32 p, 1.5 MB First record of Latonia gigantea (Anura, Alytidae) from the Iberian Peninsula / Villa, Andrea (Università degli Studi di Torino. Dipartimento di Scienze della Terra) ; Delfino, Massimo (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Hernández Luján, Àngel (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Almécija, Sergio (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Alba, David M. (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont)
The single extant species of the anuran genus Latonia lives in Israel, but in the fossil record the genus is known mainly from Europe, spanning from the Oligocene to the early Pleistocene. Here we describe new remains of Latonia from the early to late Miocene of the Vallès-Penedès Basin (NE Iberian Peninsula), coming from the following localities: Sant Mamet (MN4), Sant Quirze and Trinxera del Ferrocarril (MN7+8), and Castell de Barberà, Can Poncic 1 and Can Llobateres 1 (MN9).

52 p, 986.0 KB Trapped in a Roman well : amphibians and reptiles from Tenuta Zuccarello near Marcon, Venice, Italy / Villa, Andrea (Università degli Studi di Torino. Dipartimento di Scienze della Terra) ; Bon, Mauro (Museo di Storia Naturale di Venezia) ; Delfino, Massimo (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont)
The Roman well US 100, located in the Tenuta Zuccarello near Venice, has yielded a large number of different animals remains, dated back to 2000 ± 40 years BP. Amphibians and reptiles are represented by at least 11 taxa: two caudates (Lissotriton gr. [...]

We herein describe the fossil amphibians and reptiles from the Neogene (latest Miocene or earliest Pliocene; MN 13/14) locality of Maramena, in northern Greece. The herpetofauna is shown to be extremely diverse, comprising at least 30 different taxa. [...]
