Richard H. Benson, Kruna Rakic-El Bied, Gioacchino Bonaduce, 1991. An important current reversal (influx) in the Rifian Corridor (Morocco) at the Tortonian-Messinian boundary: The end of Tethys Ocean; Paleoceanography 6(1), pp. 165-192

Abstract: Atlantic psychrospheric and temperate mesopelagic faunas found in the lower Messinian marls in Morocco indicate that a strong, eastward flowing, bottom current was present in the Rifian Corridor before the Salinity Crisis. This influx began just before diatomite deposition in the Paleo-Mediterranean, continued during a decrease in species diversity in coral reef formation, and diminished with the initial stages of “brine” concentration in the deep-water phase of the Crisis. The influx is most readily studied in a condensed section of marl in the Bou Regreg valley near Rabat. The beginning of this “siphon event” coincides with the Tortonian/Messinian boundary (6.4 Ma, subchron 6N1). It is identified by (1) a change in the planktonic foraminifera from dominance of warm, tropical, epipelagic Globorotalia menardii with Globigerinoides to the temperate, mesopelagic Gl. miotumida plexus with conomiozea; (2) the sudden appearance of an upper psychrospheric ostracode fauna with Agrenocythere pliocenica and Oblitacythereis ruggierii, (3) a change in nannoflora; and (4) beginning of the 6.3 Ma Global Carbon Shift. The initial strong influx stage of the siphon lasted at least 0.7 m.y., decreasing after the middle of Chron 5, ca. 5.7, to be lost ca. 5.3 Ma. Conditions for the siphon formed when the continental climate created a deficit in the water budget of the Paleo- Mediterranean Sea. The reversal took place when tectonic movement in the foredeeps of the Betic- Rif Orogene changed the thresholds of the twin straits, the Rifian Corridor and the Iberian Portal. Inflow increased rapidly in the southern Corridor to draw in waters from beneath the rising Atlantic pycnocline, while Paleo-Mediterranean Overflow Water (PMOW) continued out of the northern Iberian Portal. The invasion of “nappes” or olistoliths, first into the portal and then into the corridor, led to the end of the outflow of the PMOW terminating the need for the siphon, and then to the isolation of the Paleo-Mediterranean.

  • Abstract

Botanists have long believed that hybrid speciation is important, especially after chromosomal doubling (allopolyploidy). Until recently, hybridization was not thought to play a very constructive part in animal evolution. Now, new genetic evidence suggests that hybrid speciation, even without polyploidy, is more common in plants and also animals than we thought.

  • Abstract

Although the evolutionary importance of natural hybridization has been debated for decades, it has become increasingly clear that hybridization plays a fundamental role in the evolution of many plant and animal taxa, sometimes resulting in the formation of entirely new species. Although some hybrid species retain the base chromosome number of their parents, others combine the full chromosomal complements of their progenitors. Hybrid speciation can thus produce two fundamentally different types of evolutionary lineages, yet relatively little is known about the factors influencing ploidy level in hybrid neospecies. We estimated genetic divergence between species pairs that have given rise to homoploid and polyploid hybrid species and found that divergence is significantly greater for the parents of polyploids, even after controlling for potentially confounding factors. Our data thus provide the first direct evidence in support of the notion that the extent of genomic divergence between hybridizing species influences the likelihood of diploid versus polyploid hybrid speciation.

The xenophorid gastropods of the Mediterranean Pliocene: The record of the Siena Basin; Bollettino della Societa Paleontologica Italiana Vol. 43(3) 2004, pp. 409-451. Abstract: The systematics of fossil Eura-Mediterranean xenophorids is still relatively unknown, due to the many problems involved in studying them (very conservative shell structure, few available shell characters, the fact that the attached objects modify whorl shape and vary in amount, the rarity of certain species and the difficulty of finding well preserved specimens). Most of the relevant literature dates back to the classic monographs on Tertiary molluscs by M. Hörnes, F. Sacco and M. Cossmann. Seven species have been reported from the Euro-Mediterranean Pliocene: Xenophora crispa (König, 1825), X. deshayesi (Michelotti, 1847), X. infundibulum (Brocchi, 1814), X. plioitalica Sacco, 1896, X. scaldensis Glibert, 1958, Stellaria plioextensa (Sacco, 1896), and S. testigera (Bronn, 1831). However, all but three (X. crispa, X. infundibulum, and S. testigera) are practically unknown. This paper is devoted to six species found in the Siena Pliocene Basin, a classic Italian Pliocene area. Five of them (X. crispa, X. infundibulum, X. plioitalica, S. plioextensa, and S. testigera) are redescribed and current knowledge about them summarized; the sixth species, known from a dozen specimens, is described as new: X. davolii n. sp. In the remarks to the new species, the status and the relationships of some classical Euro-Mediterranean Tertiary xenophorid species, i.e. X. deshayesi (Michelotti, 1847), X. burdigalensis (Grateloup, 1847) and X. grateloupi (D'Orbigny, 1852), are discussed. A neotype is designated for two species (X. crispa and S. testigera) and a proposal of neotype designation is made for some Miocene species: X. deshayesi, X. burdigalensis, and X. grateloupi.

Abstract Electron microscopic observations on the euspermatozoa (fertilizing sperm) and paraspermatozoa (infertile sperm) of Serpulorbis sp. and Dendropoma sp. suggest that the family Vermetidae (sensu stricto) is not closely allied to any true cerithioidean family. Vermetid euspermatozoa strongly resemble those of a number of other mesogastropod superfamilies including the Stromboidea, Epitonioidea, Naticoidea, Calyptraeoidea, Cypraeoidea, some rissooideans and littorinoideans, and even some neogastropod taxa. Vermetid paraspermatozoa are anudeate, with one or more tails extending from both ends of a central body region. In contrast, paraspermatozoa of true cerithioideans: (1) have tails extending from only the posterior region of the 'head' (2) usually retain a condensed nuclear remnant and (3) sometimes possess an acrosome-like structure at the head apex. These results, in conjunction with anatomical work by Morton, suggest that the Vermetidae should be removed from the Cerithioidea and placed probably in its own superfamily (Vermetoidea Raphinesque, 1815) as practised by some recent workers. The Vermetoidea possibly are associable with the Stromboidea/Calyptraeoidea/Hipponicoidea/Xenophoroidea block within the Mesogastropoda.

  • Mr Dillwyn remarks that the Str. costatus, a very rare and local species, is plentiful in Bantry bay. We have resided there for a week together, for the sole purpose of examining the heaps which are dredged up for manure, and have never been so fortunate nor have any of our conchological friends, as to find a single specimen. It is probable that he mistook for it the Murex reticulatus, the most common of the shells among those heaps; and the more so, as at the time he made his visit to that part of Ireland, he confessedly paid little attention to this department of natural history. On the Western and Scotch coasts: rare.

 Length of shell 36.5, of last whorl 27.5, of aperture 24.5, maximum diameter 17.5 mm.

126. Genus Perissodonta Martens, von (1878): As was also concluded by (Nielsen, 2005) and (Griffin and Nielsen, 2008), no taxonomically significant characters separate Perissodonta Martens, von (1878), Struthiolarella Steinmann and Wilckens, 1908 and Antarctodarwinella Zinsmeister (1976, p. 111). These taxa were distinguished by the coarseness of their spiral and axial sculpture, and were considered to constitute a “subfamily Struthiolarellinae” by Zinsmeister and Comacho (1980, fig. 7), but they intergrade. Antarctodarwinella was distinguished also by the repeated, heavy callous deposits formed by the outer lip around the last whorl, but such a callus has not been considered a generic character in either Tylospira (present in T. glomerata and, to a lesser extent, T. gilli; Darragh, 1991) or Conchothyra, in both of which narrowly and heavily calloused species are accepted in the one genus. The living South Georgian species Perissodonta georgiana Strebel, 1908 (which probably intergrades with the type species, P. mirabilis (Smith, 1875); Powell, 1960 A.W.B. Powell, Antarctic and subantarctic Mollusca, Records of the Auckland Institute and Museum 5 (1960), pp. 117–193.Powell, 1960, p. 144) has coarse, prominent axial and spiral sculpture (Powell, 1951, pl. 8, fig. 40–42), similar to that of Argentinean fossil species referred to Struthiolarella and to S. steinmanni Stilwell and Zinsmeister (1992, p. 108, pl. 13 m–p). (Powell, 1951) and (Powell, 1960) synonymised Struthiolarella with Perissodonta. As noted by Powell (1951), it is clear from their comments that (Marwick, 1924) and (Finlay and Marwick, 1937) used Struthiolarella because they were not aware of the name Perissodonta. Steinmann and Wilckens (1908) apparently were not either, as they did not mention it when proposing Struthiolarella. Marwick (1960, p. 21) again considered Struthiolarella to be a synonym of Perissodonta, listing them in formal synonymy, and confirming his earlier lack of knowledge of the name Perissodonta. In my opinion, Struthiolarella and Antarctodarwinella are subjective synonyms of Perissodonta.

M.I. Simpson, The stratigraphy of the Atherfield Clay Formation (Lower Aptian, Lower Cretaceous) at the type and other localities in southern England, Proceedings of the Geologists' Association, Volume 96, Issue 1, 1985, Pages 23-45,

  • Abstract:

A description of the lithostratigraphy of the Atherfield Clay Formation at the type locality (Atherfield, Isle of Wight) is presented, and a comparison made with the ammonite zonal scheme of Casey (1961). The members of the formation are defined and the stratigraphical nomenclature is revised; the `Atherfield Clay' of Fitton (1847), comprising only that part of the Atherfield succession which represents the Deshayesites fittoni Subzone, is here renamed the Chale Clay Member. The macrofauna of the entire formation at Atherfield is recorded; it includes a newly discovered assemblage of decapod crustaceans which contains Meyeria ornata (Phillips), a species previously known only from the Boreal Lower Cretaceous. A correlation is made between the sequence at Atherfield and those of Compton Bay and Redcliff (Isle of Wight) and the Dorset Coast. A review is also made of the succession in the Weald.

Hiromichi Hirano, Cretaceous biostratigraphy and ammonites in Hokkaido, Japan, Proceedings of the Geologists' Association, Volume 93, Issue 2, 1982, Pages 213-223,

  • Abstract:

The Cretaceous sediments of Hokkaido are composed of miogeosynclinal and deltaic sediments from the Aptian to the Maastrichtian, distributed in two belts westward of the paired metamorphic belts. In the west belt and between the west and the east belts, the facies change eastward from shallow-water to off-shore. The ammonite fauna belongs to the Pacific-Tethyan realm(s) and is dominated by off-shore forms. Correlation with the European standard by ammonites, inocerami, foraminifers, radiolarians and nannoplankton has been undertaken concurrently in the three districts.

William James Kennedy, The Correlation of the Lower Chalk of South-East England, Proceedings of the Geologists' Association, Volume 80, Issue 4, 1969, Pages 459-560, IN1-IN9

  • Abstract:

The Lower Chalk of south-eastern England is a richly fossiliferous sequence 54-104 m. thick, spanning most of the Cenomanian Stage. It rests with a slight break or without interruption on Upper Albian dispar-perinflatum Sub-zone sediments of Gault or Upper Greensand facies. The upper limit as here adopted is marked by a slight break at the base of the Cenomanian-Turonian plenus Marls (Metoicoceras gourdoni Zone), the sub-plenus erosion surface of Jefferies (1962, 1963). Of the many groups of fossils present, the ammonites provide the most useful means of subdivision and correlation. The distribution of these, and of other originally aragonitic fossils, is largely controlled by preservation, and there are levels at which there is evidence of seafloor dissolution of aragonite. Nevertheless, three ammonite zones can be recognised: 3. Zone of Calycoceras naviculare 2. Zone of Acanthoceras rhotomagense 1. Zone of Mantelliceras mantelli Within the M. mantelli Zone three assemblages are identified, characterised by: (a) Hypoturrilites carcitanensis, (b) Mantelliceras saxbii, (c) Mantelliceras gr. dixoni. There are also three assemblages in the Zone of A. rhotomagense, characterised by: (a) Turrilites costatus, (b) Turrilites acutus, (c) Acanthoceras jukes-brownei. The C. naviculare Zone is not subdivided. These zones are comparable to those proposed by Hancock (1959) for the type Cenomanian, and are equivalent to the Lower, Middle and Upper parts of the Stage. Bivalves, corals and brachiopods also have a use in correlation, and even fragments of the commonest fossils--Inoceramus and Holaster--are of local use.
