Latest version published by ZooKeys on Aug 10, 2013 ZooKeys

This dataset compiles occurrence data (all data are referenced by locality names and georeferenced WGS1984) of fossil echinoids collated from the literature published over a century and a half, from 1857 to 2012, by Cotteau (1857—1878; 1862—1867), Valette (1908), Corroy (1925), Rat et al. (1987), and Saucède et al. (2012). The dataset was completed by data from collection specimens housed at the department of Geology of Université de Bourgogne (Dijon, France), specimens sampled in the field by J Houdard, A Valette, B David, and P Robert, at the Muséum national d'Histoire naturelle (Paris, France), specimens sampled by J Lambert, and at the department of Geosciences of Université de Rennes 1 (Rennes, France), specimens sampled by P Courville. The dataset also gives information on taxonomy (from species to order and higher taxonomic levels). Systematics was reviewed and homogeneized by T Saucède for taxonomic relevance (Saucède et al. 2012).

Project Data

No Description available

Title Inventory of the fossil echinoid diversity of the Early Cretaceous (Hauterivian) in the Paris Basin (France).
Funding BioME team, UMR CNRS 6282 Biogéosciences, Université de Bourgogne.
Study Area Description This dataset inventories occurrence records of fossil echinoid specimens collected in the Calcaires à Spatangues Formation (CSF) that crops out in the southeast of the Paris Basin (France), from the town of Bar-le-Duc in the northeast to Sancerre in the southwest (Fig. 1A). The CSF is dated from the Acanthodiscus radiatus chronozone (ca. 132 Ma, early Hauterivian, Early Cretaceous) according to the cephalopods collected: Acanthodiscus radiatus (Bruguière, 1789), Leopoldia leopoldina group (d’Orbigny, 1841), and Cymatoceras pseudoelegans (d’Orbigny, 1840) (Cornuel 1841; Mégnien and Mégnien 1980; Magniez-Jannin 1984; Rat et al. 1987; Reboulet et al. 2009). The CSF is composed of limestone and clay deposits (Fig. 1B), only a few meter thick (ca. 0.5 to 8 m) with dominant bioclastic lithofacies (Rat et al. 1987). The average palaeo-depth was moderate (approximately few meters to ca. 20-30 m) based on dinoflagellates, foraminifer and bryozoan assemblages, and the overall sedimentation rate was low as suggested by the abundance of worn ferruginous bioclasts and ooliths (Rat et al. 1987; Walter 1996; Courtinat et al. 2006).
Design Description This dataset compiles occurrence data (all data are referenced by locality names and georeferenced WGS1984) of fossil echinoids collated from the literature published over a century and a half, from 1857 to 2012, by Cotteau (1857—1878; 1862—1867), Valette (1908), Corroy (1925), Rat et al. (1987), and Saucède et al. (2012). The dataset was completed by data from collection specimens housed at the department of Geology of Université de Bourgogne (Dijon, France), specimens sampled in the field by J Houdard, A Valette, B David, and P Robert, at the Muséum national d'Histoire naturelle (Paris, France), specimens sampled by J Lambert, and at the department of Geosciences of Université de Rennes 1 (Rennes, France), specimens sampled by P Courville. The dataset also gives information on taxonomy (from species to order and higher taxonomic levels). Systematics was reviewed and homogeneized by T Saucède for taxonomic relevance (Saucède et al. 2012).

Sampling Methods

Specimens were both collected in the field and consulted in public collections of Université de Rennes 1 (Rennes, France), Université de Bourgogne (Dijon, France), and Muséum national d’Histoire Naturelle (Paris, France). Identification of specimens was performed at species level based on descriptions by G Cotteau (1857—1878; 1862—1867), A Valette (1908), G Corroy (1925), P Rat et al. (1987), and T Saucède et al. (2012). Taxonomy was updated when it proved necessary following Kier (1962), Durham et al. (1966), Smith (1984), and Kroh and Smith (2010). Though paraphyletic, some family names have been used for convenience (Nucleolitidae Agassiz & Desor, 1847; Toxasteridae Lambert, 1920). The accuracy and geographic coordinates of localities where collection specimens came from was checked based on geological grounds (BRGM sources). Dubious localities were discarded.

Method step description:

  1. The Calcaires à Spatangues Formation consists of shallow marine sediments that were deposited in the southeast of the Paris Basin (France) during the early Hauterivian (Acanthodiscus radiatus zone). These deposits are rich and diversified in a benthic fauna among which echinoids predominate. The systematic status of echinoids of the Calcaires à Spatangues Fm. was revised so as to update the list of echinoid species reported in the Formation and better assess its remarkable diversity. Of the 54 echinoid species ever described, 26 species are recognized that belong to 16 different families, among which regular (13 species) and irregular (13 species) echinoids are represented in equal proportion.

Additional Metadata

Purpose This dataset inventories occurrence records of fossil echinoid specimens collected in the Calcaires à Spatangues Formation (CSF) that crops out in the southeast of the Paris Basin (France), and is dated from the Acanthodiscus radiatus chronozone (ca. 132 Ma, early Hauterivian, Early Cretaceous). Fossil richness and abundance of the CSF has attracted the attention of palaeontologists since the middle of the nineteenth century. This dataset compiles occurrence data (referenced by locality names and geographic coordinates with decimal numbers) of fossil echinoids both collated from the literature published over a century and a half, and completed by data from collection specimens. The dataset also gives information on taxonomy (from species to order and higher taxonomic levels), which has been checked for reliability and consistency. It compiles a total of 628 georeferenced occurrence data of 26 echinoid species represented by 22 genera, 14 families, and 9 orders.
