Upcoming Meetings:




The 2nd Palaeontological Virtual Congress will be organized in a number of general theme sessions trying to span the whole variety of potential contributions.

However, Palaeontology is a wide discipline which encompasses a huge variety of topics.  Aware of this and taking advantage of the flexibility that virtual platforms offer, sessions proposals on emerging topics, innovative techniques or any other matter that you consider of interest are welcome to be addressed in depth during the celebration of the congress.

The purpose of such sessions is to provide a comprehensive forum for the exchange of ideas and discuss the issue within specialists in the target field.

If you are interested in proposing a specific session, please send us a brief description (no more than 300 words) with the main goals and any relevant information that you may consider relevant. Please, indicate in the proposal the full name of the organisers and their respective affiliations.

Proposals should be submitted by email to palaeovc@gmail.com before December 31st. Notification of acceptance will be sent to the organizers after that.  This edition, we want try to involve more to the participants, so if your workshop is accepted, the proposed organisers will be in charge of: 

– Look for contributions. Ideally, a single session would require the participation of at least 5 contributions, but this is only a suggestion and it is not mandatory.

– Send the abstracts to peer-review

– Moderating the sessions. We want to encourage a dialogue with all the participants, so the sessions organisers will be in charge of moderating and promoting debates in the discussion chats.

EBERT, D.A. & LESLIE, R.W. (2019): Leucoraja elaineae sp. nov., a new rough skate (Rajiformes: Rajidae) from the Western Indian Ocean. Zootaxa, 4691 (3): 225–234
New species: Leucoraja elaineae
Abstract: A new species of the genus Leucoraja is described from off Kenya in the Western Indian Ocean (WIO). The new species was collected during a survey of the R/V Fridtiof NansenLeucoraja elaineae sp. n. is the third species in the genus found to occur in the WIO, and the only species in the genus Leucoraja known exclusively from this region. Its closest geographic congener L. wallacei, occurring from Namibia to southern Mozambique, can be separated by a combination of morphological and meristic characters including an elongated, pronounced snout (L. elaineae sp. n.) vs a short, blunt snout (L. wallacei), higher predorsal vertebral (107 vs 64-74) and pectoral fin radial counts (77 vs 61-64), a dorsal surface pattern consisting of a single ocelli at the midbase of each pectoral fin, paired small white spots, and no banding or crossbars on its tail vs numerous rosettes and whorls, no prominent ocelli at the pectoral fin bases, and 3-4 tail bands. The only other WIO Leucoraja species in the genus, L. compagnoi is known only from South Africa and has a short, blunt snout, a lower upper tooth count (38 vs 57 in L. elaineae sp. n.), a plain dorsal disc color with no markings and distinct bands on its tail. All other members of the genus occur in the North Atlantic, except one species that occurs in the eastern Central Atlantic and one in the eastern Indian Ocean.

WHITE, W.T. & FAHMI & WEIGMANN, S. (2019): A new genus and species of catshark (Carcharhiniformes: Scyliorhinidae) from eastern Indonesia. Zootaxa, 4691 (5): 444–460
New genus: Akheilos
New species: Akheilos suwartanai
Abstract: A new genus and species of catshark is described based on a single specimen collected off Ambon in the Maluku Islands of eastern Indonesia. Akheilos suwartanai belongs to the subfamily Schroederichthyinae which differs from the other catsharks in a combination of: similar sized dorsal fins, supraorbital crests present, pseudosiphon present on claspers, broad subocular ridges under eyes, posterior nasal flaps present, tips of rostral cartilage fused into a rostral node. It represents the first record of this subfamily outside of the Americas. Akheilos differs from the other genus in the subfamily, Schroederichthys in a combination of: clasper groove not fused dorsally, ventral lobe of caudal fin produced, more intestinal valve turns, anal fin slightly larger than second dorsal fin, and in colour pattern.

SALAME, I. & ASAN, A. (2019): A new Odontorhytis species (Chondrichthyes) from the Middle Eocene of Elgedida Mine, Bahariya Oasis, Egypt. Egyptian Journal of Geology, 63: 407-415
New species: Odontorhytis bahariensis
Abstract: During a systematic examination of a chondrichthyan assemblage collected from the middle Eocene (probably Lutetian) glauconitic sandstone bed overlying the iron ore of ElGedida mine, in the Bahariya oasis, the authors came across a large number of minute teeth belonging to genus Odontorhytis. By comparing these teeth to the already known species Odontorhytis pappenheimi from the middle-late Eocene (Bartonian-Priabonian) of Egypt, it appeared that they differ from the latter species by a number of consistent characters, and must be assigned to a new species– Odontorhytis bahariensis.


MORAVEC, F. & BARTON, D.P. (2019): Description of Piscicapillaria bursata sp. nov. (Capillariidae) and Redescription of Parascarophis sphyrnae Campana-Rouget, 1955 (Cystidicolidae), Two Nematode Parasites of Hammerhead Sharks (Sphyrna spp.) off Australia. Acta Parasitologica, in press
New species: Piscicapillaria bursata
Abstract: Purpose Data on helminth parasites in hammerhead sharks are scarce and, therefore, new examinations of these hosts are needed to recognize the species composition of their parasites, including nematodes. Methods Helminthological examinations of hammerhead sharks, Sphyrna lewini (Griffith et Smith) (209 specimens) and Sphyrna mokarran (Rüppell) (57 specimens) (Sphyrnidae, Carcharhiniformes), from off the northern coast of Australia revealed one new and one insufficiently known species of intestinal nematode parasites. These were studied with the use of light and scanning electron microscopy. Results Both nematode species are described. Piscicapillaria bursata sp. nov. (Capillariidae) from S. mokarran (type host) and S. lewini differs from its congeners mainly in the spicule length (330 µm), body length of gravid females 12.80–21.26 mm and in possessing a subterminal female anus. The specimens of Parascarophis sphyrnae Campana-Rouget, 1955 (Cystidicolidae) (type species of Parascarophis Campana-Rouget, 1955) collected from S. lewini made it possible to redescribe the female and, for the first time, to describe the male; the same species was also found in S. mokarran. Amended diagnosis of Parascarophis is provided. Parascarophis is mainly characterized by the presence of lateral alae, a unique feature within the Cystidicolidae, and by the cephalic structures (presence of a cuticular hood and a pair of anterolateral plate-like structures in the mouth). Conclusions In addition to the discovery of a new nematode species, Pi. bursata sp. nov., the finding of Pa. sphyrnae in Australian waters represents a new geographical record of this parasite outside the Atlantic Ocean. The species of Parascarophis previously described from teleosts, P. bharatii Agrawal, 1965, P. oteroi Arya, 1992 and P. mulloidi Imam, Tawfik et Abdel Hady, 1982, are designated as species inquirendae and incertae sedis. The finding of P. sphyrnae in Australian waters represents a new geographical record of this parasite outside the Atlantic Ocean. Pa. sphyrnae had not been reported previously from beyond the Atlantic Ocean.

TOMIKAWA, K. & YANAGISAWA, M. & HIGASHIJI, T. & YANO, N. & VADER, W. (2019): A New Species of Podocerus (Crustacea: Amphipoda: Podoceridae) Associated with the Whale Shark Rhincodon typusSpecies Diversity, 24 (2):  209–216
New species: Podocerus jinbe
Abstract: A new species of podocerid amphipod, Podocerus jinbe, is named and described. This new species was collected from the gill rakers of the whale shark Rhincodon typus Smith, 1828 from off Yomitan Village, Okinawa Island, Japan. This is the first record of an amphipod associated with the whale shark. Podocerus jinbe sp. nov. is morphologically similar to P. zeylanicus (Walker, 1904), but differs from the latter by its larger body size, shorter peduncular article 1 of antenna 1, longer flagellar article 1 of antenna 1, subrectangular propodus of male gnathopod 1, anteriorly concave basis of male gnathopod 2, narrow merus of female gnathopod 2, greater number of robust setae on rami of uropods 1 and 2, and greater number of long robust setae on the telson apical lobe. Additionally, a partial DNA sequence of the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI) of this species was determined for future studies.
