ABSTRACT We describe Prosictodon dubei, gen. et sp. nov., from the Abrahamskraal Formation, Karoo Basin, Middle Permian of South Africa. Diagnostic characters of P. dubei include postorbitals that slope ventrolaterally and overlap the parietals nearly completely; median anterior palatal ridges that converge with the posterior median palatal ridge, forming a V-shaped structure; caniniform process with an anterior edge that is set off from the palatal rim forming a notch; ‘postcanine’ teeth… 
A Reevaluation of Brachyprosopus broomi and Chelydontops altidentalis, Dicynodonts (Therapsida, Anomodontia) from the Middle Permian Tapinocephalus Assemblage Zone of the Karoo Basin, South Africa
ABSTRACT Brachyprosopus broomi was described in 1937 based on a specimen from the Tapinocephalus Assemblage Zone (Karoo Basin, South Africa), but it was largely overlooked by subsequent workers. We
Skeletal morphology, phylogenetic relationships and stratigraphic range of Eosimops newtoni Broom, 1921, a pylaecephalid dicynodont (Therapsida, Anomodontia) from the Middle Permian of South Africa
Robert Broom described Eosimops newtoni in 1921 based on a skull collected in Tapinocephalus Assemblage Zone strata in South Africa, and the species has been largely overlooked since that time. Here
New Dicynodonts (Therapsida, Anomodontia) and Updated Tetrapod Stratigraphy of the Permian Ruhuhu Formation (Songea Group, Ruhuhu Basin) of Southern Tanzania
ABSTRACT Permian tetrapod fossils were discovered in the Tanzanian Ruhuhu Formation in 1963, but they have received far less attention than the tetrapods of the overlying Usili (formerly Kawinga)
The cranial morphology, phylogenetic position and biogeography of the upper Permian dicynodont Compsodon helmoedi van Hoepen (Therapsida, Anomodontia)
Compsodon helmoedi is an obscure dicynodont originally described based on a single specimen from the upper Permian of the Karoo Basin. The discovery of three new specimens of Compsodon from the
A New Endothiodont Dicynodont (Therapsida, Anomodontia) from the Permian Ruhuhu Formation (Songea Group) of Tanzania and Its Feeding System
ABSTRACT Cranial material of the dicynodont Endothiodon from the middle fossiliferous horizon of the Permian Ruhuhu Formation (Ruhuhu Basin, Tanzania) is described as a new species, E. tolani.
A New Dicynodont (Therapsida: Anomodontia) from the Permian of Southern Brazil and Its Implications for Bidentalian Origins
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis indicates that R. procurvidens is the earliest and most basal member of Bidentalia, a cosmopolitan clade that includes Permian and Triassic dicynodonts whose dentition is usually reduced to a pair of maxillary tusks.

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 Specimen of the Enigmatic Dicynodont Lanthanostegus mohoii (Therapsida, Anomodontia) from the Southwestern Karoo Basin of South Africa, and its Implications for Middle Permian Biostratigraphy
Lanthanostegus is an unusual dicynodont known from only two partial skulls from a single locality near Jansenville in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa. Although these specimens can be
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 new dicynodont (Anomodontia: Emydopoidea) from the terminal Permian of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa
INTRODUCTION Smal dicynodonts (i.e. those with skul length <15 cm) are the numericaly dominant tetrapods throughout most of the mid-to-late Permian strata in the Karoo Basin of South Africa. In the

A new dicynodont therapsid from the lowermost Beaufort Group, Upper Permian of South Africa
Two fragmentary skulls from the Upper Permian Tapinocephalus Assemblage Zone (Abrahamskraal Formation, Beaufort Group) in Eastern Cape Province, South Africa, represent a new dicynodont taxon.
NEW SPECIMENS OF THE TANZANIAN DICYNODONT “CRYPTOCYNODON PARRINGTONI” VON HUENE, 1942 (THERAPSIDA, ANOMODONTIA), WITH AN EXPANDED ANALYSIS OF PERMIAN DICYNODONT PHYLOGENY
Abstract The dicynodont species “Cryptocynodon” parringtoni von Huene, 1942 was described from a single poorly preserved specimen collected from the Upper Permian Kawinga Formation, Ruhuhu Basin,
A new basal dicynodont from the Upper Permian of South Africa
TLDR
The skull of a small anomodont therapsid, from the Tapinocephalus Assemblage Zone in Northern Cape Province, South Africa, represents a new basal dicynodont, and a phylogenetic analysis indicates that Colobodectes is the basalmost member of a dicYNodont clade that excludes Eodicynodon.
The cranial anatomy of Kombuisia frerensis Hotton (Synapsida, Dicynodontia) and a new phylogeny of anomodont therapsids
TLDR
The general topology of this phylogeny supports the main aspects of recent hypotheses of anomodont relationships, and not only resolves critical nodes at the base of the Dicynodontia that were previously obscured by polytomies, but also introduces new hypotheses of relationships.
A NEW SPECIES OF DICYNODON FROM SINKIANG
A second Permian dicynodont was recognized in the recently prepared material of Yuan's collection from Sinkiang.It is a skull preserved in a greyish green concretion,but unfortunately its locality
REDESCRIPTION, PHYLOGENETIC POSITION, AND STRATIGRAPHIC SIGNIFICANCE OF THE DICYNODONT GENUS ODONTOCYCLOPS (SYNAPSIDA: ANOMODONTIA)
TLDR
Cladistic analysis of a data set including Odontocyclops and 18 other well-known South African dicynodont genera does not support the hypothesis that Odontocryclops is a close relative of Dicynodon or of Triassic dicYNodonts such as Kannemeyeria, and a close relationship with Oudenodon and Rhachiocephalus is proposed.
The Permian Dicynodont Colobodectes cluveri (Therapsida, Anomodontia), with Notes on Its Ontogeny and Stratigraphic Range in the Karoo Basin, South Africa
ABSTRACT The dicynodont Colobodectes cluveri was described from a single specimen in 2003. Although the holotype possessed a distinctive combination of primitive, derived, and autapomorphic
A SECOND BURNETIAMORPH THERAPSID FROM THE PERMIAN TEEKLOOF FORMATION OF SOUTH AFRICA AND ITS ASSOCIATED FAUNA
TLDR
The discovery of Lophorhinus in the Tropidostoma Assemblage Zone (AZ) demonstrates that multiple burnetiamorph taxa co-existed in southern Gondwana during Middle and Late Permian times, implying relatively stable tetrapod community structure in southern Pangea for the final 10 million years of the Permians.
COLOBOMYCTER PHOLETER FROM THE LOWER PERMIAN OF OKLAHOMA: A PARAREPTILE, NOT A PROTOROTHYRIDID
ABSTRACT Reexamination of the holotype of Colobomycter pholeter and description of a new specimen, from a Lower Permian fissure fill near Richards Spur, Oklahoma, reveals that this small enigmatic
A New Species of Emydops (Synapsida, Anomodontia) and a Discussion of Dental Variability and Pathology in Dicynodonts
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis supports the sister-taxon relationship of the two species of Emydops and their position at the base of E mydopidae, and concludes that E. oweni has both tusked and tuskless morphs.
