Late Jurassic-Early Cretaceous freshwater bivalves from Turiasaurus riodevensis bearing strata of Teruel (Spain)


Three freshwater bivalve taxa are described from the Villar del Arzobispo Formation (Late Jurassic-Early Cretaceous) of Riodeva, Teruel, Spain. The stratigraphic range of the large and geographically widely distributed bivalve Margaritifera, previously recorded from the Early Cretaceous of Spain and southern England, is recognised to extend back probably into the Late Jurassic. This new record extends the palaeogeographic and temporal distribution of the family Margaritiferidae in Europe
