ABSTRACT A new taxon of kannemeyeriiform dicynodont, Ufudocyclops mukanelai, is described based on a well-preserved skull from Subzone C of the Cynognathus Assemblage Zone, which are the youngest strata (probably Middle Triassic) of the Beaufort Group (uppermost Burgersdorp Formation) in South Africa. Ufudocyclops mukanelai is diagnosed by its autapomorphic intertemporal morphology: the intertemporal bar in this taxon is ‘X'-shaped—broad anteriorly and posteriorly but distinctly ‘pinched’ at…

An unusual dicynodont specimen from the historical collection of von Huene and Stahlecker (1928/1929) is described from the Middle Triassic Dinodontosaurus Assemblage Zone of the Santa Maria

A New Large Gomphodont from the Triassic of South Africa and Its Implications for Gondwanan Biostratigraphy

ABSTRACT A partial skull (BP/1/7976) of a very large cynodont from the Middle Triassic Cynognathus Assemblage Zone (Cricodon-Ufudocyclops subzone) of South Africa is described. The specimen

New record of a stahleckeriid dicynodont (Therapsida, Dicynodontia) from the Late Triassic of southern Brazil and biostratigraphic remarks on the Riograndia Assemblage Zone

TLDR
This taxonomic proposal and the lithological features of the site support that the outcrop belongs to the Riograndia Assemblage Zone (AZ), and the specimen cannot be referred unambiguously to Jachaleria candelariensis due to the lack of cranial material, it likely represents the second record of the genus in the Triassic of Brazil.

The tetrapod fauna of the upper Permian Naobaogou Formation of China: 6. Turfanodon jiufengensis sp. nov. (Dicynodontia)

TLDR
Turfanodon represents the first confirmed tetrapod genus shared by the late Permian faunas of the Junggar and Ordos basins, and appears to be the first dicynodont genus distributed across both tropical and temperate zones (based on paleoclimate reconstructions).

A Redescription of Kunpania scopulusa, a Bidentalian Dicynodont (Therapsida, Anomodontia) from the ?Guadalupian of Northwestern China

ABSTRACT Permian dicynodonts were discovered in strata exposed on the flanks of the Bogda Mountains (Xinjiang, China) in 1928. Nearly all known specimens were collected in the Guodikeng Formation (=

New data on the Triassic temnospondyls from the Karoo rift basins of Tanzania and Zambia

ABSTRACT Temnospondyl specimens collected recently in the Middle-?Late Triassic of the Ruhuhu (Tanzania) and Luangwa (Zambia) rift basins are described and figured. They are attributed to cf.

A New Erythrosuchid Archosauriform from the Middle Triassic Yerrapalli Formation of South-Central India

Abstract. Erythrosuchid archosauriforms are quadrupedal carnivorous reptiles with a proportionally huge skull. They represent one of the first evolutionary radiations of medium to large predatory

The Large-Bodied Dicynodont Stahleckeria (Synapsida, Anomodontia) from the Upper Triassic (Carnian) Chañares Formation (Argentina); New Data for Triassic Gondwanan Biogeography

Abstract. The non-marine Triassic displays distinct regional differences in tetrapod fossil assemblages even in adjacent regions, and these patterns have been hypothesized to reflect provincialism.

A Redescription of the Triassic Kannemeyeriiform Dicynodont Sangusaurus (Therapsida, Anomodontia), with an Analysis of Its Feeding System

TLDR
The phylogenetic analysis shows that Sangusaurus is not a kannemeyeriid but instead is a stahleckeriid, and the feeding system of Sangosaurus emphasizes an orthal jaw motion.

A new trirachodontid cynodont from the lower levels of the Burgersdorp Formation (Lower Triassic) of the Beaufort Group, South Africa and the cladistic relationships of Gondwanan gomphodonts

TLDR
A new trirachodontid cynodont is described from the base of the Burgersdorp Formation (Subzone A fauna of the Cynognathus Assemblage Zone), of the South African Karoo Basin and is characterized by circular to ovoid in outline upper postcanines and the absence of a maxillary platform lateral to the postcanine series.

NEW MASTODONSAURID TEMNOSPONDYLS FROM THE CYNOGNATHUS ASSEMBLAGE ZONE (UPPER BEAUFORT GROUP; KAROO BASIN) OF SOUTH AFRICA

A New Species of Garjainia Ochev, 1958 (Diapsida: Archosauriformes: Erythrosuchidae) from the Early Triassic of South Africa

TLDR
Garjainia madiba is the geologically oldest erythrosuchid known from the Southern Hemisphere, and demonstrates that eryhrosuchids achieved a cosmopolitan biogeographical distribution by the end of the Early Triassic, within five million years of the end-Permian mass extinction event.

Diademodon tetragonus Seeley, 1894 (Therapsida: Cynodontia) in the Triassic of South America and Its Biostratigraphic Implications

ABSTRACT We report for the first time the presence of the cynodont Diademodon tetragonus Seeley, 1894 in the South American Triassic. The specimen, represented by a fragmented skull and lower jaws,

CYNODONTS FROM THE UPPERMOST BURGERSDORP FORMATION, SOUTH AFRICA, AND THEIR BEARING ON THE BIOSTRATIGRAPHY AND CORRELATION OF THE TRIASSIC CYNOGNATHUS ASSEMBLAGE ZONE

Abstract The Burgersdorp Formation in the Beaufort Group of the South African Karoo Basin records a diverse and rich vertebrate fauna that is referred biostratigraphically to the Cynognathus

On the Validity and Phylogenetic Position of Eubrachiosaurus browni, a Kannemeyeriiform Dicynodont (Anomodontia) from Triassic North America

TLDR
Inclusion of Eubrachiosaurus in a revised phylogenetic analysis of anomodont therapsids indicates that it is a stahleckeriid closely related to the South American genera Ischigualastia and Jachaleria, which alters perception of Late Triassic dicynodont diversity in the northern hemisphere.

The dicynodont Sungeodon kimkraemerae n. gen. n. sp. is described on the basis of a skull from the Lower Triassic Jiucaiyuan Formation of Dalongkou (Junggar Basin, Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region,

Lystrosaurus (Therapsida, Dicynodontia) from India: Taxonomy, relative growth and Cranial dimorphism

TLDR
Bivariate scatter plots of different parameters of about 50 crania of L. murrayi from India and South Africa yield high correlation coefficients and show that all specimens constitute one morphologically homogeneous group in various stages of ontogenetic development.
