  • Description of the postcranial skeleton of the basal stereospondyl amphibian Lydekkerina huxleyi from new material shows it to be heavily ossified with large processes for muscle attachment and well-developed articulation surfa- ces. The structure of the postcranial skeleton implies a sub- stantial capability for terrestrial locomotion, rather than a primarily aquatic existence as has been suggested for most other stereospondyls. The postcranial skeleton is most similar to that of… CONTINUE READING
