[PaleoIchthyology • 2014] Natgeosocus sorini • A New Genus of the Family Palaeocentrotidae (Teleostei, Lampridiformes) from the Oligocene of the northern Caucasus and comments on other fossil Veliferoidei

Natgeosocus sorini Bannikov, 2014

A new genus and species of the lampridiform fish Natgeosocus sorini (Palaeocentrotidae) is described based on a single imprint of the skeleton from the Lower Oligocene of the northern Caucasus. To date, the family Palaeocentrotidae has only been known by its monotypic genus from the basal Eocene of Denmark. An overview of fossil records of the suborder Veliferoidei is presented. A separate family is established for the Eocene genus Bajaichthys Sorbini, 1983 from Italy. The diagnosis of the family Palaeocentrotidae is emended.

  2. Unfortunately there are a lot of AIDS/Herpes denials on Herbal cures still out there. I did research on them after I was tested HIV/Herpes positive I was so worried am I going to die soon. I continue my search again on herbal remedy for Std, then I found lots of testimony on how Dr Itua Herbal Medicine Cured HIV/Aids, Herpes Virus,Copd, Hepatitis, Diabetes, On websites sharing their testimonies, which made much more sense to me. All the authors pronounce Dr Itua As a man with Good Heart, I pick interest in their testimonies and I contact him about my situation then he gave me procedure how it works, I proceed after one week he courier his Herbal Medicine to me and instruct me on how to drink it for two weeks to cure. I receive His Herbal Medicine so I drank it for two weeks as I was told then after 2 days I go for a test I found out I was cured from HIV/Aids & Herpes Virus, I pay homage to him 2 months ago to his country to celebrate with him on his African festival which he told me it usually happens every year. I know there are lots of (HIV)/Aids&Herpes Virus denials of Herbal Remedy movement the same few doctors and they represent a very small faction of the community. I could have died because I refused Natural Herbs Cures for so long, but luckily, by the grace of God I am alive to tell my story.
