Unusual scaled preservation samples on freshwater decapods (Crustacea, Decapoda) from the Pleistocene (Late Cenozoic) of Turkey and Kazakistan

Abstract

We report two rare examples of preservation by calcareous incrustation of two specimens of decapod crustaceans, discovered in continental carbonate deposits from the Pleistocene (Late Cenozoic) of SW Turkey (W Anatolia) and S Kazakistan (“Caucasian Area”) respectively. The specimen from Turkey is assigned to Potamon Savigny, 1816 (Potamidae) while the specimen from Kazakistan is assigned to Austropotamobius Skorikov, 1907 (Astacidae).
