Scylla posted a topic in Fossil NewsI got one of these tektites almost 20 years ago in Vietnam and have been intrigued by the mystery of this 800,000 year old impact event since. This type of tektites has been found in Antarctica, Australia, and Asia. Now scientists may have found the impact crater hiding under large Laotian lava lake. https://astronomy.com/news/2020/01/crater-found-from-asteroid-that-covered-10-of-earths-surface-in-debris
A new dicynodont-related paper is available online: Chloe Olivier, Bernard Battail, Sylvie Bourquin, Camille Rossignol, J.-Sebastien Steyer & Nour-Eddine Jalil (2019) New dicynodonts (Therapsida, Anomodontia) from near the Permo-Triassic boundary of Laos: implications for dicynodont survivorship across the Permo-Triassic mass extinction and the paleobiogeography of Southeast Asian blocks, Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology, DOI: 10.1080/02724634.2019.1584745 Dicynodon incisivum was the first dicynodont and first pre-Mesozoic tetrapod found in Laos, but has been dismissed as a nomen dubium. The description of Counillonia and Repelinosaurus makes clear that kannemeyeriforms and Dicynodon-like forms co-existed during the interval across Permian-Triassic boundary. By the way, is there a copy of the following paper available that I could skim through?
