    Carnegie Museum of Natural History, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 15213, USA
    Nature 476:442-5. 2011
    ..This mammal has scansorial forelimb features, and provides the ancestral condition for dental and other anatomical features of eutherians...

    Zhe Xi Luo
    Section of Vertebrate Paleontology, Carnegie Museum of Natural History, Pittsburgh, PA 15213, USA
    Proc Biol Sci 278:28-34. 2011
    ..This provides the timing of the evolution, and where along the phylogeny the morphogenetic genes were co-opted into patterning the cochlear innervation, and the full coiling of the cochlea in modern therians...

    Zhe Xi Luo
    Carnegie Museum of Natural History, Pittsburgh, PA 15213, USA
    Science 308:103-7. 2005
    ..Parsimony analysis suggests that this fossil represents a separate basal mammalian lineage with some dental and vertebral convergences to those of modern xenarthran placentals, and reveals a previously unknown ecomorph of early mammals...
