Amphibian remains from the Lower Cretaceous of Sweden: the first Scandinavian record of the enigmatic group Albanerpetontidae

Rees, Jan LU and Evans, S E (2002) In GFF 124(2). p.87-91
Abstract
Fragmentary remains of albanerpetontid amphibians are described from microvertebrate horizons in the Lower Cretaceous Vitaback Clays of southern Sweden. These provide the first Scandinavian record for this enigmatic lissamphibian group. In its morphological characters, the Swedish material most closely resembles the Jurassic-Cretaceous European genus Celtedens.
