Kosenko I.N. (2017) Late JurassicEarly Cretaceous oysters from Siberia: A systematic review // Published in Acta Palaeontologica Polonica. 62 (4): 759-778.

The present study reviews the taxonomy of Late JurassicEarly Cretaceous oysters from the Northern and the Subpolar Urals (Western Siberia) and northern East Siberia. Previous studies have documented 10 species from the genus Liostrea (L. delta, L. cucurbita, L. praeanabarensis, L. anabarensis, L. plastica, L. gibberosa, L. planoconvexa, L. siberica, L. uralensis, L. lyapinensis), and 3 species from the genus Gryphaea (G. borealis and 2 species in open nomenclature). Liostrea gibberosa, L. planoconvexa, L. uralensis, and L. cucurbita are transferred in this study to the genus Pernostrea. Furthermore, two new species of Pernostrea are described: P. mesezhnikovi sp. nov. and P.? robusta sp. nov. Liostrea siberica is transferred to the genus Praeexogyra. Liostrea praeanabarensis and L. anabarensis are attributed to the subgenus Boreiodeltoideum (genus Deltoideum) as well as L. delta sensu Zakharov (1966) which is described here as new species Deltoideum (Boreiodeltoideum) borealis sp. nov. The similar shell morphology of the genera Deltoideum and Pernostrea provides a basis to establish the new tribe Pernostreini trib. nov. in the subfamily Gryphaeinae. Three species are recorded for the first time from Siberia: Nanogyra? cf. thurmanni, Ostrea cf. moreana and Gryphaea (Gryphaea) curva.
