  1. A new paper is available online if anyone is interested: Lambert, O., de Muizon, C., Urbina, M., & Bianucci, G., 2020. A new longirostrine sperm whale (Cetacea, Physeteroidea) from the lower Miocene of the Pisco Basin (southern coast of Peru). Journal of Systematic Paleontology 18 (20): 1707-1742. https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/14772019.2020.1805520 Rhaphicetus is quite unusual for its long rostrum, so it provides new insights into how sperm whales began developing a supracranial basin to house the spermaceti, suggesting that early physeteroids were longirostrine like beaked whales.
  2. Another new extinct mysticete-related paper is available online: Bisconti, M., Damarco, P., Mao, S., Pavia, M. and Carnevale, G. (2020). The earliest baleen whale from the Mediterranean: large‐scale implications of an early Miocene thalassotherian mysticete from Piedmont, Italy. Papers in Palaeontology doi:10.1002/spp2.1336 Atlanticetus lavei constitutes the oldest fossil mysticete from the Mediterranean Basin, considering that the fossil record of mysticetes from the early-middle Miocene in the Mediterranean basin is very sparse. Note that the authors of this paper make the basal thalassothere "Aglaocetus" patulus the type species of Atlanticetus.* Four nominal thalassothere species from Miocene deposits in the North Sea basin ("Amphicetus" rotundus, "Idiocetus" longifrons, "Mesocetus" latifrons, and "Plesiocetus" burtinii) were referred to Aglaocetus by Steeman (2010) based on some similarities with patulus, but the renaming of patulus as Atlanticetus and the much younger age of burtinii and rotundus raises the question of whether longifrons and latifrons could be similar to Atlanticetus, and whether rotundus and burtinii could constitute an unnamed genus or belong of the existing basal thalassothere genera from the late Miocene. *Two left tympanic earbones referred to the nominal thalassothere species 'Mesocetus' pinguis are identified by Bisconti and colleagues as similar to the earbones of Atlanticetus patulus and A. lavei, as is the little-known Miocene taxon 'Aulocetus' calaritanus. The presence of duplicate left tympanics in the 'Mesocetus' pinguis hypodigm makes clear than the material assigned to that species comes from more than one individual, and one of the cranial elements of that taxon may have been designated the lectotype.
  3. Bug molt or leaf?

    Found this in some Indonesian amber (Early Miocene age). Not sure if its a bug molt, dead bug before the resin landed on it, or a leaf. Tiny little thing, measuring 3 mm long x 1.5 mm wide. 1 pic at 55 x showing main item & what looks like a leg, 2nd pic at 100 x showing main item itself. I couldn't get better pics unfortunately as I'm working the amber by hand, so the other end is thick. The entire piece is only 4 mm x 5 mm x 5 mm x 5 mm x 12 mm in size (rectangular & kinda hard to hold). Any ideas?
  4. Prosqualodon redescription

    I forgot, does anyone have a copy of the following paper I keep forgetting: Carlos M. Gaetán (2019). Prosqualodon australis (Cetacea: Odontoceti) from the early Miocene of Patagonia, Argentina: redescription and phylogenetic analysis. Ameghiniana. in press. doi:10.5710/AMGH.21.11.2018.3208. Cheers, Vahe
  5. Archaeohippus mannulus, sp. nov. Monroecreekian/Harrisonian terrestrial claystone Arikareean, late Oligocene/early Miocene Pinellas County, Florida On permanent display at the Florida Museum of Natural History, Gainesville, Fl. I discovered this particular specimen back in 95 while collecting fossils in a shallow creek. Initially thought to be a new species of Miohippus, it was sent to the Museum Of Natural History in Gainesville Fl. for further studies. In 2003 it was determined to be a new species of Archaeohippus rather than Miohippus.
  6. Help with identification please.

    My first guess was an ear bone but I cant find anything that looks like it. Then I stubled on this mollusk fossil from England called gisortia coombii. Here's the kicker im in Maryland. Found it in an early miocene area.
