  author={Grzegorz Niedźwiedzki and Maciej Bojanowski},
  pages={150 - 155}
We describe a new specimen of a supposed Paleozoic tetrapod body impression from the Lower Permian Słupiec Formation in the Intra-Sudetic Basin, Poland. The size, integument morphology of belly and part of tail imprints, and the morphology of a well-preserved pes track diagnose the specimen and readily distinguish it from other described specimens of body impressions of Paleozoic tetrapods. The eupelycosaur identity of this new specimen is based on the identification of the footprint Dimetropus… 

Callibrachion and Datheosaurus, Two Historical and Previously Mistaken Basal Caseasaurian Synapsids from Europe

New observations on Datheosaurus and Callibrachion provide new insights into the early diversification of caseasaurs, reflecting an evolutionary stage that lacks spatulate teeth and broadened phalanges that are typical for other caseid species.

A revision of tetrapod footprints from the late Carboniferous of the West Midlands, UK

The presence of Dromopus lacertoides at Hamstead is consistent with the trend towards increasing aridity through the late Carboniferous, and it is possible that the assemblage is the stratigraphically oldest occurrence of this important amniote ichnotaxon.



Early Permian tetrapod ichnofauna from the Intra-Sudetic Basin, SW Poland

Ecology of earliest reptiles inferred from basal Pennsylvanian trackways

Trackways representing the earliest evidence for the origin of reptiles (amniotes) are reported from the basal Pennsylvanian Grande Anse Formation, New Brunswick, Canada. Amniote characters include

Tetrapodenfährten aus dem Perm - Kenntnisstand und Progress 2000

Tetrapod footprints from Permian terrestrial deposits are repesented in the literature by 150 generic and 281 species names. This number was increased by later combination to more than 370 binomina.


Abstract:  The ichnotaxonomy and stratigraphic, geographic and environmental distribution of fish (Undichna) and amphibian (Lunichnium) swimming traces are reviewed. The ichnospecies of Undichna

New finds of vertebrate footprints from the Lower Permian of Wambierzyce, Poland

New specimens of vertebrate footprints are reported from the Early Permian deposits  in Poland. Footprints discovered in a well-known Early Permian Rotliegend tracksite at Wambierzyce (old German

On the squamation of Australerpeton cosgriffi Barberena, a temnospondyl amphibian from the Upper Permian of Brazil

The embryonic scale is completely remodelled in the adult by resorption and redeposition which produces a cancellous bone with large erosion bays and secondary osteons, contrary to what happens in sarcopterygians with cosmoid scales.

Amphibian Body Impressions from the Mississippian of Pennsylvania, USA

Temnocorpichnus isaacleai is a new ichnogenus and ichnospecies of temnospondyl amphibian body impression from the Mississippian (Visean) Mauch Chunk Formation of eastern Pennsylvania, United States.

Abstract Permian tetrapod footprints are known from localities in North America, South America, Europe and Africa. These footprints comprise four ichnofacies, the Chelichnus ichnofacies from

Non-Marine Permian Biostratigraphy and Biochronology

During the Permian, the single supercontinent Pangaea stretched from pole to pole. Early Permian glacial deposits are found in southern Gondwana. Along the sutures of Pangaea, mountain ranges towered

The Intra-Sudetic Basin – a Record of Sedimentary and Volcanic Processes in Late – to Post-Orogenic Tectonic Setting

The Intra-Sudetic Basin, situated at the northern margin of the Bohemian Massif in the West Sudetes, represents one of the larger intramontane throughs widespread along the Variscan belt of Europe
