Lower Miocene fishes and turtle from Žvarulje near Mlinše, Slovenia (Central Paratethys)
AbstractThe article discusses fossil finds of Miocene vertebrates from the vicinity of Žvarulje near Mlinše in Central Slovenia. The fossils were found in the Lower Miocene Govce formation. Most common in the assemblage were tooth Coronas, usually without their root parts of cartilaginous fishes, belonging to the genera Notorynchus, Carcharias, Cosmopolitodus, Isurus, Carcharhinus and Sphyrna. Fragments of dental plates and caudal spines ascribed of the genera Myliobatis, Aetobatus and Rhinoptera were also relatively common. A few tooth crowns of bony fishes assigned of the genus Pagrus were also found along with two modest fragments of a turtle shell ascribed of the genus Trionyx.
