Buffetaut, E., Dyke, Gareth J., Suteethorn, V. and Tong, H. (2005) First record of a fossil bird from the Early Cretaceous of Thailand Comptes Rendus Palevol, 4, (8), pp. 681-686. (doi:10.1016/j.crpv.2005.06.002).

Record type: Article


We present the first known occurrence of a Mesozoic fossil bird from Thailand. The new specimen is the distal end of a left humerus, from the Early Cretaceous Sao Khua Formation in the Northeast of the country, and testifies to the presence of a medium-sized avian in these non-marine strata. This is also the first Mesozoic bird known from the whole of Southeast Asia.
