Thirty years of deep-water marine algae collections from waters off Puerto Rico are summarized in Smithsonian Contributions to Botany #105
Patriomanis americana is the only pangolin, living or extinct, known from the Western Hemisphere. Initially described over 40 years ago from a partial skeleton, since then several nearly complete skeletons have also been discovered in latest Eocene (Chadronian North American Land Mammal Age) deposits of central Wyoming and western Montana. Together these fossils include nearly every bone in the skeleton, making it not only the most completely preserved fossil pangolin taxon but also among the best preserved Eocene mammal taxa. This study contains a detailed, bone-by-bone description of the osteology of Patriomanis and comparisons with other well-known fossil pangolin skeletons.
