Description, paleoenvironmental and paleobiogeographical implications of Miocene fish faunas from Jabal Zaltan and Sahabi (Libya)Download
The Libyan fossiliferous sites of Jabal Zaltan (early to middle Miocene) and Sahabi (late Miocene) have been excavated for decades and have produced an immense diversity of vertebrate fossils including fish. Fish remains from a recent field campaign at the two sites are described here in detail....

We report on a reticulated filament found in modern and fossil cave samples that cannot be correlated to any known microorganism or organism part. These filaments were found in moist environments in five limestone caves (four in New Mexico, U.S.A., one in Tabasco, Mexico), and a basalt lava tube...
