The Largest Known Muntiacine Found in China

  Dr. HOU Sukuan from the Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology and Paleoanthropology (IVPP), Chinese Academy of Sciences reported a new species of muntiacine Euprox in the journal of Zootaxa 3911 (1) recently. The new species, Euprox grandis sp. nov., is established based on a skull and a pair of antlers from th...
XU-flying fish.jpg Middle Triassic Fossils Reveal How Flying Fish Started to Glide

  Modern flying fish are remarkable for leaping from the water to glide in the air using long, winglike fins, presumably to escape aquatic predators. This extraordinary gliding strategy, unlike those in terrestrial gliders, is energetically very expensive and has otherwise been hypothesized to occur only in a sin...
Large Cutting Tools from Central China May Support the existence of the true Acheulean techno-complex in East Asia

  Current research on Large Cutting Tools (LCTs) in East Asia, mainly China and South Korea, has provided some new interpretations for the “Acheulean” in this region. Interpretations of the origins of LCT industries in Asia differ according to the conceptual framework of researchers and their weighting of speci...
First Known Skull of the Muntjak Eostyloceros Found in China
Dr. DENG Tao from the Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology and Paleoanthropology, Chinese Academy of Sciences and his colleagues reported a new species of the muntjak Eostyloceros in the journal of Zootaxa 3893 (3) recently. The new species, Eostyloceros hezhengensis sp. nov., is established based on a skull with it...
蓝田县公王岭直立人化石3.jpg New Age of the Lantian Homo Erectus Cranium Extending to About 1.63 Million Years Ago
According to paper published online November 20 in the Journal of Human Evolution, the age of the Lantian Homo erectus cranium from Gongwangling, Lantian County, Shaanxi Province, China, is likely half a million years older than previously thought. Earlier estimates dated this important fossil, which was found in 19...
New Species of Ornithuromorph Bird Found from the Lower Cretaceous of Northeastern China
In a paper published online October 29 in the journal of Chinese Science Bulletin (CSB), a team of young researchers from the Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology and Paleoanthropology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (IVPP) described a new species of bird from the new Sihedang locality of the Yixian Formation, pa...
Extraordinary Fossil Reveals the Origin of Mating by Copulation
A profound new discovery announced October 19 in Nature by an international team led by world-renowned palaeontologist, Flinders University Professor John Long, reveals how the intimate act of sexual intercourse first evolved in our deep distant ancestors.
  In one of the biggest discoveries in the evolutionary hi...
First Asian Coelophysoid Dinosaur Discovered in Lufeng, Yunnan, China
Coelophysoid dinosaurs represent the earliest major radiation of neotheropods. These small-to-medium-sized agile bipeds lived throughout much of Pangaea during the Late Triassic–Early Jurassic. However, despite the well-documented discoveries of coelophysoids in North America and Africa, the coelophysoid material t...
图1-2-3.jpg New progress of the Neogene Suidae research
    Dr. HOU Sukuan and Prof. DENG Tao from the Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology and Paleoanthropology(IVPP), Chinese Academy of Sciences reported a new species of Chleuastochoerus from the Linxia Basin, Gansu Province, China, and discussed the systematic position of the genus. Their latest research result was pu...
New Pterosaur Resembling 'Avatar' creature found in Northeastern China
Dr. WANG Xiaolin, Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology and Paleoanthropology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (IVPP), and his international team describe a new genus and species of toothed pteranodontoid pterosaur, Ikrandraco avatar, based on two laterally flattened specimens from the Early Cretaceous (Aptian) Jiu...
