Abstract A new trirachodontid eucynodont, Beishanodon youngi, is named and described based on a well-preserved skull from Triassic lacustrine deposits exposed in the Beishan Hills, northern Gansu Province, China. The new discovery documents the second record of trirachodontid eucynodonts known from China, along with Sinognathus gracilis from the Middle Triassic Ermaying Formation exposed in Shanxi Province. Cladistic analysis supports the placement of the new taxon as the sister group of… 

A new scanilepiform from the Lower Triassic of northern Gansu Province, China, and phylogenetic relationships of non‐teleostean Actinopterygii

Taxonomic Revision of Plesiofuro mingshuica from the Lower Triassic of Northern Gansu, China, and the Relationships of Early Neopterygian Clades

TLDR
A taxonomic revision of Plesiofuro mingshuica is provided based on a comparative study including over 500 new specimens and sheds new light on one of the least resolved areas of osteichthyan phylogeny: the so-called ‘subholosteans’ of the neopterygian total group.

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

Taeniolabis taoensis is an iconic multituberculate mammal of early Paleocene (Puercan 3) age from the Western Interior of North America. Here we report the discovery of significant new skull material

Cricodon metabolus (cynodontia: Gomphodontia) from the Triassic Ntawere Formation of Northeastern Zambia: Patterns of Tooth replacement and a Systematic Review of the Trirachodontidae

TLDR
It is suggested that the two reputed trirachodontids from China might be probainognathians that convergently evolved expanded postcanine teeth rather than gomphodontians.

Ontogeny in the Malagasy Traversodontid Dadadon isaloi and a Reconsideration of its Phylogenetic Relationships

TLDR
Denticulated incisors evolved multiple times in traversodontid evolution (in massetognathines and Arctotraversodon), and thus this group represents another possibility (besides various archosauromorphs) to be considered when attempting to identify isolated Triassic teeth with denticulated carinae lacking cingula.

Craniofacial Morphology of Vintana Sertichi (Mammalia, Gondwanatheria) from the Late Cretaceous of Madagascar

ABSTRACT The Gondwanatheria are an enigmatic clade of Cretaceous and Paleogene mammals known from South America, Africa, Madagascar, India, and the Antarctic Peninsula. The eight valid species—each

A novel archosauromorph from Antarctica and an updated review of a high-latitude vertebrate assemblage in the wake of the end-Permian mass extinction

Abstract Triassic-aged fossil vertebrates have been sporadically collected from the Fremouw Formation, central Transantarctic Mountains, since their initial discovery in the late 1960s, giving

The Malagasy Cynodont Menadon besairiei (Cynodontia; Traversodontidae) in the Middle—Upper Triassic of Brazil

ABSTRACT The traversodontid cynodont Menadon besairiei, previously known from the ‘Isalo II’ group of Madagascar, is reported for the first time from the Triassic of southern Brazil. New material

The Traversodontid Cynodont Mandagomphodon hirschsoni from the Middle Triassic of the Ruhuhu Valley, Tanzania

Mandagomphodon hirschsoni (gen. nov., comb. nov.) is one of three species of traversodontid cynodont placed in Scalenodon [type species S. angustifrons (Parrington, 1946)] by Crompton (1972). It is

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.

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

New Material Of Menadon besairiei (Cynodontia: Traversodontidae) From the Triassic Of Madagascar

TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis incorporating information from the new specimens supports the placement of Menadon as the sister taxon to the clade Exaeretodon + Scalenodontoides, and shows that this taxon had a well-developed internarial bar and four upper incisors.

ACTINOPTERYGIANS FROM THE MIDDLE TRIASSIC OF NORTHERN ITALY AND CANTON TICINO (SWITZERLAND): ANATOMICAL DESCRIPTIONS AND NOMENCLATURAL PROBLEMS

TLDR
The actinopterygians Allolepidotus bellottii, Furo trottii and Perleidus altolepis are redescribed on the basis of well-preserved material coming from the late Ladinian Kalkschieferzone of Ca' del Frate and Meride.

On some Triassic cynodonts from Tanganyika

TLDR
It has been concluded that the Triassic cynodonts of the Ruhuhu valley compare more closely with those of the Brazilian Rio do Rasto Series than withThose of South African deposits.

Evolutionary Patterns Among Permo-Triassic Therapsids*

TLDR
Synapsids form the bulk of tetrapod diversity from Early Permian to Middle Triassic times and thus can provide critical information on the nature of the Permo-Triassic extinction in the terrestrial realm.

A juvenile gomphodont cynodont specimen from the Cynognathus Assemblage Zone of South Africa: implications for the origin of gomphodont postcanine morphology

  • J. Hopson
  • Geography, Environmental Science
  • 2005
TLDR
Diademodontids appear to represent the most primitive condition of dental morphology and replacement pattern among gomphodont cynodonts in having the anterior expanded teeth sequentially replaced by simpler, more pointed, non-occluding postcanines.

Morphology and systematics of the northern Dvina Cynodonts lReptiliac Therapsidas upper Permianr

TLDR
The morphological peculiarities of this Northern Dvina cynodont justify its being set apart in a separate family Dviniidae related to the Procynosuchidae — the extremely primitive Cynodonts of South Africa.

Whaitsiid Therocephalia and the origin of cynodonts

TLDR
It is argued that the organization of the cynodont skull can be seen as a logical functional development from the more primitive condition, and in particular, the streptostylic nature of the jaw articulation, the enlargement of the dentary and reduction of the postdentary bones, may all be correlated with the development of a masseter muscle.
