Abstract

A new genus and species of fossil decapod, Jilinocaris chinensis, is described from the Late Cretaceous of northern China. Although incompletely preserved, enough anatomy is visible to suggest that this species represents the first fossil example of the Stenopodidea and is tentatively assigned to the family Spongicolidae. /// Es wird eine neue Gattung und Art eines fossilen Dekapoden, Jilinocaris chinensis, aus der Unterkreide Nordchinas beschrieben. Obwohl nicht vollständig erhalten, reichen die auswertbaren anatomischen Daten aus, um diese Art als erstes fossiles Exemplar der Stenopodidea vorzuschlagen und vorerst der Familie Spongicolidae zuzuordnen.
