原始语种摘要: Three clutches and eight additional eggs are described from the Upper Cretaceous Chichengshan Formation in the Lishui Basin of Zhejiang Province, China. The three clutches contain 6-18 partial or complete spherical eggs, 14-18 cm in diameter. The eggshell thickness and reticulate pore system are identical to Dictyoolithus hongpoensis Zhao, 1994. However, the eggshell lacks superimposed shell units previously reported in this oospecies. The difference in microstructure most likely results from the reliance on thin section analysis in the original study; furthermore, superimposed shell units are inadequately documented in all Dictyoolithus oospecies due to the absence of scanning electron microscopy (SEM) or low (×45) magnification of SEM imaging. Cladistic analysis and the presence of the...
