Ilarionia beggiatoi is quoted for the first time in the Lutecian beds of the Vic Basin (Folgueroles, Barcelona province).


Rhyncholampas grignonensis is quoted in the middle Eocene of Spain. The specimens of this paper represent the first mention in the NE of Spain. Some closely related species are compared with this species. It must be concluded that all they belong to Rhyncholampas grignonensis. The following species: Pygorhynchus desnoyersi Desor, 1858; Pygorhynchus gregoirei Cotteau, 1880 and Pygorhynchus botellae Cotteau, 1890 are synonyms of Rhyncholampas grignonensis.

Representatives of the family Gastrodoridae were exclusively known from Jurassic deposits in central Europe. Here, the first Cretaceous species, Gastrodorus cretahispanicus n. sp., is recorded from reefal strata of the Eguino Formation (Albeniz Unit) of Albian-Cenomanian age, in western Navarra (northern Spain). Not only does the occurrence of the new species extend the stratigraphic range of the family upward for approximately 45 million years into the mid-Cretaceous, it also constitutes the first record of gastrodorids from southern Europe. For over a century, the taxonomic position of the genus Gastrodorus has been debated. It is revised here and the family Gastrodoridae is given a full superfamily status within the Anomura. The genus Eogastrodorus is also redefined. Gastrodorids underwent a remarkable size reduction from the Middle to Upper Jurassic, which may be explained by their migration into reef environments. © 2011 The Paleontological Society.

Two new paguroids, Cretatrizocheles olazagutiensis n. gen., n. sp. and Mesoparapylocheles michaeljacksoni n. gen., n. sp., both based on carapaces, are described and added to the very diverse mid-Cretaceous (Albian-Cenomanian) decapod crustacean fauna of the reefal deposits near Alsasua (Navarra, northern Spain). The description of Annuntidiogenes worfi is emended on the basis of a newly discovered, much more complete carapace. Mesoparapylocheles n. gen. is a member of the Parapylochelidae n. fam., whereas Cretatrizocheles n. gen. is a member of the Trizochelinae. These species show that the linea transversalis, introduced by neontologists for a groove lateral and/ or posterior to the cervical groove, is an evolved part of the branchiocardiac groove. © 2012 E.

Trilobites from the Izegguirene Formation (First Bani Group, Lower Caradoc, Upper Ordovician) of Bou Nemrou (El Kaid Errami, East of Anti-Atlas, Morocco) are described. These comprise the following taxa: Basilicus calzadai sp. nov., Placoparia sp., Eoharpes sp., Zeliszkella (Zeliszkella) velai sp. nov., Degamella sendinoae sp. nov., Uralichas hispanicus tardus (Vela & Corbacho, 2009) and Selenopeltis longispinus (Vela & Corbacho, 2009).

A new ichnospecies named Asteriacites obtusus is described from Triassic beds of the Alcover's Stone (Pedra d'Alcover) between the villages of Mont-ral and Alcover (Tarragona province, Spain). This new ichnospecies increases the diversity of the rich fauna which has been found and described in this outcrop and also constitutes the first record of this ichnogenus in the Spanish late Triassic. A possible inclusion in the new ethological group Thanatoichnia proposed by Martins-Neto & Gallego (2006) is suggested.


First records of Gitolampas scutella (Echinoidea) in Eocene of Spain. Gitolampas scutella (Lamarck, 1816) is cited for the first time in the four localities of Eocene of Catalonia (NE Spain). So its palaeogeographical extension is enlarged. The taxonomic problems concerning this genus are recorded. As a new aspect, some palaeohabitat conclusions can be deduced from the study of the types of tubercles.

The crab genus Rathbunopon is exclusively known from Cretaceous rocks, mainly from Europe. Here two new European localities are presented: one in the Albian/Cenomanian of northern Spain yielding well-preserved specimens of Rathbunopon obesum, and one from the lower Aptian at the German-Austrian border yielding Rathbunopon schrattenkalkensis n. sp. Both are found in association with coral reefs. Based upon a revision of the genus, we place Rathbunopon within the Prosopidae. Furthermore, Homolopsis tuberculata is transferred to Rathbunopon. Placement of 'Rathbunopon' atherfieldensis in Rathbunopon is not tenable; we place it here within the Homoloidea in open nomenclature. With the addition of; R. tuberculatum, Rathbunopon is interpreted to have evolved in the Hauterivian and diversified in the Albian/Cenomanian. Whereas R. obesum resided mainly in reefal settings, Rathbunopon species lived in a variety of environments and are suggested to be generalists. ©2011 E.
