NEW DATA ON THE LATE PERMIAN VERTEBRATE FAUNA OF POSTO QUEIMADO, RIO DO RASTO FORMATION, SOUTHERN BRAZIL

New vertebrate fossils are reported from the Late Permian continental Rio do Rasto Formation in the Parana Basin, southern Brazil. The remains were collected at the locality of Posto Queimado, in the

Permian tetrapods from the Sahara show climate-controlled endemism in Pangaea

The results show that long-standing theories of Late Permian faunal homogeneity are probably oversimplified as the result of uneven latitudinal sampling, and suggest that faunas from the poorly sampled xeric belt that straddled the Equator during thePermian period differed markedly from well-sampled fauna that dominated tropical-to-temperate zones to the north and south.

THE OLDEST THEROCEPHALIANS (THERAPSIDA, EUTHERIODONTIA) AND THE EARLY DIVERSIFICATION OF THERAPSIDA

Abstract:  The oldest records of mammal‐like therapsids in Laurasia are from the Ocher Complex of Russia and the Xidagou Formation of China, whereas in Gondwana they are restricted to the Eodicynodon

During the Permian, tetrapods showed a major transition from basal synapsid-dominated faunas in the first half to therapsid-dominated faunas in the second. The transition was significant in marking

First evidence of a bolosaurid parareptile in France (latest Carboniferous-earliest Permian of the Autun basin) and the spatiotemporal distribution of the Bolosauridae

The dentition of this species is unique within Bolosauridae in exhibiting a progressive shift from a mesio- to a disto-lingual orientation of the tooth apex and lingual facet.
