Early Miocene decapod Retropluma slovenica Gašparič & Hyžný, 2014 from Govce beds of Tunjice Hills (Central Slovenia)
AbstractIncreasing reports of genus Retropluma Gill, 1894 from the siliciclastic sediments of South-East Europe demonstrate the abundance and preferred habitat of this genus in Miocene seas of Central Paratethys. In the present paper we report new specimens of decapod Retropluma slovenica Gašparič & Hyžný, 2014, which extend the known palaeogeographic and stratigraphic distribution of the species to the western borders of Slovenian Basin of the Central Paratethys. The described specimens originate from the Early Miocene locality of Rovček in the Tunjice Hills in Slovenia and exhibit associated preservation, characteristic for endobenthic infaunal mode of living.
