Cretaceous Vertebrate Fossils from the Antarctic Peninsula
Entry ID: VertPaleo

Abstract: This data set includes collections of vertebrate fossils, replicas, and their
contextual data. Included within the data set are chondricthyans, teleosts,
reptiles, and avian remains. Within the reptiles, dinosaurs, mosasaurs, and
plesiosaurs are represented. Most specimens are isolated elements, but some
associated material is present. All specimens were collected from the Late
Cretaceous (Campanian-Maastrichtian) sedimentary rocks exposed in the James
Ross Basin east of the Antarctic Peninsula. Fossil specimens were derived from
the Lopez de Bertodano and Snow Hill Island formations on James Ross and Vega
