The Early Triassic record of the large capitosaurid amphibian genus Parotosuchus is supplemented by new material from fluvial deposits of Wióry, southern Poland, corresponding in age to the Detfurth Formation (Spathian, Late Olenekian) of the Germanic Basin. The skull of the new capitosaurid shows an “intermediate” morphology between that of Parotosuchus helgolandicus from the Volpriehausen-Detfurth Formation (Smithian, Early Olenekian) of Germany and the slightly younger Parotosuchus… 
First occurrence of brachyopid temnospondyls in Southeast Asia and review of the Mesozoic amphibians from Thailand
Abstract. The non-marine Mesozoic sedimentary rocks of Thailand, which consist of the Indochina block and the Sibumasu block, have yielded several terrestrial and aquatic vertebrate fossils, but only
Yuanansuchus maopingchangensis sp. nov., the second capitosauroid temnospondyl from the Middle Triassic Badong Formation of Yuanan, Hubei, China
TLDR
Analysis of a new capitosaur phylogenetic data matrix, containing 56 characters and 29 species, confirms that the two species from Yuanan are sister taxa and that Capitosauroidea can be divided into two major clades.
New biological insights into the Middle Triassic capitosaurs from India as deduced from limb bone anatomy and histology
TLDR
Woven fibred bone tissue, a very rapidly deposited tissue mostly seen in the embryos and very young individuals of higher vertebrates, is reported for the first time in a juvenile temnospondyl suggesting that such tissues in non‐amniotes helped in achieving large body sizes rapidly.
Plant remains from the Polish Triassic. Present knowledge and future prospects
ABSTRACT The Triassic plant macrofossils of Poland are very poorly known. There are few Triassic rock exposures here, they contain very few plant specimens, there is little scientific interest in the
The temnospondyl Parotosuchus nasutus (v. Meyer, 1858) from the Early Triassic Middle Buntsandstein of Germany
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis finds P. nasutus to nest with P. haughtoni, P. orenburgensis and P. helgolandicus within a monophyletic Parotosuchidae, which in turn is confirmed as basalmost clade of Capitosauroidea.

A New Lydekkerinid (Amphibia, Temnospondyli) from the Lower Triassic of South Africa: Implications for Evolution of the Early Capitosauroid Cranial Pattern
TLDR
The evidence suggests that the Lydekkerinidae evolved from more fully developed capitosauroid (rhinesuchid-like) ancestors by gradual truncation of ontogeny in parallel with the acquisition of many advanced features, unknown in the Permian capitosAUroids.

TLDR
A new mastodonsauroid, Yuanansuchus laticeps, is reported from the Xinlingzhen Formation of Hubei Province, China, and phylogenetic analysis regards it as the sister taxon of the Eocyclotosaurus-Quasicyclotososaurus clade, a result consistent with traditional biostratigraphic study.
