Data from: Completeness of the eutherian mammal fossil record and implications for reconstructing mammal evolution through the Cretaceous/Paleogene mass extinction

Thomas W. Davies, Mark A. Bell, Anjali Goswami & Thomas J.D. Halliday
There is a well-established discrepancy between paleontological and molecular data regarding the timing of the origin and diversification of placental mammals. Molecular estimates place interordinal diversification dates in the Cretaceous, whilst no unambiguous crown placental fossils have been found prior to the end-Cretaceous mass extinction. Here, the completeness of the eutherian fossil record through geological time is evaluated in order to assess the suggestion that a poor fossil record is largely responsible for the difference...
