ABSTRACT The dicynodont wastebasket genus Dicynodon is revised following a comprehensive review of nominal species. Most nominal species of Dicynodon pertain to other well-known dicynodont genera, especially Oudenodon and Diictodon. Of the Karoo Permian species that are referable to “Dicynodon” sensu lato, we recognize four common, valid morphospecies: Dicynodon lacerticeps, D. leoniceps, D. woodwardi, and Dinanomodon gilli, comb. nov. Eleven additional species of “Dicynodon” are recognized… 
New Dicynodonts (Therapsida, Anomodontia) from Near the Permo-Triassic Boundary of Laos: Implications for Dicynodont Survivorship Across the Permo-Triassic Mass Extinction and the Paleobiogeography of Southeast Asian Blocks
ABSTRACT The dicynodonts are an emblematic group of herbivorous therapsids that survived the Permo-Triassic (P-Tr) crisis. Laotian dicynodonts from stratigraphically constrained beds, recently dated
Revision of the Tanzanian dicynodont Dicynodon huenei (Therapsida: Anomodontia) from the Permian Usili Formation
TLDR
Higher basinal endemism in large late Permian dicynodonts than previously thought is indicated, a sharp contrast to the cosmopolitanism in the group in the earliest Triassic.
Permian and Triassic Dicynodont (Therapsida: Anomodontia) Faunas of the Luangwa Basin, Zambia: Taxonomic Update and Implications for Dicynodont Biogeography and Biostratigraphy
Dicynodont fossils were first collected in the Luangwa Basin, Zambia, in the 1920s, but limited detailed study and taxonomic uncertainty have obscured their biostratigraphic utility and their
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.
Redescription of the Geikiid Pelanomodon (Therapsida, Dicynodontia), with a Reconsideration of ‘Propelanomodon’
TLDR
All known specimens of tuskless geikiid dicynodonts from the upper Permian Karoo Basin of South Africa are reevaluated and analysis of intertemporal width relative to total skull size in Pelanomodon and the abundant cryptodont taxa Aulacephalodon, Oudenodon, and Tropidostoma suggests that PelanOModon had a unique growth trajectory.
New Materials of the Enigmatic Dicynodont Abajudon kaayai (Therapsida, Anomodontia) from the Lower Madumabisa Mudstone Formation, Middle Permian of Zambia
ABSTRACT Dicynodonts were one of the most diverse and abundant clades of tetrapods from the Lopingian (late Permian) to the Late Triassic. Despite their ecological and biostratigraphic importance,
A Redescription of Kunpania scopulusa, a Bidentalian Dicynodont (Therapsida, Anomodontia) from the ?Guadalupian of Northwestern China
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 (=
An early geikiid dicynodont from the Tropidostoma Assemblage Zone (late Permian) of South Africa
TLDR
Bulbasaurus is the earliest known geikiid and the only member of the group known from the Tropidostoma Assemblage Zone; discovery of this taxon shortens a perplexing ghost lineage and indicates that abundant clades from the later Permian of South Africa may have originated as rare components of earlier Karoo assemblage zones.
Angonisaurus and Shansiodon, Dicynodonts (Therapsida, Anomodontia) from Subzone C of the Cynognathus Assemblage Zone (Middle Triassic) of South Africa
ABSTRACT Dicynodonts are the most abundant therapsids from the Beaufort Group (Karoo Basin, South Africa), and they have been used as index fossils to define most of the Beaufort biozones. Although

Diictodon Feliceps (Owen, 1876), A Dicynodont (Therapsida, Anomodontia) Species with a Pangaean Distribution
TLDR
If dicynodont therapsids were adapted to exploiting components of the Gondwanan flora, the presence of D. feliceps in Gondwana and Laurasia indicates that such trophic interactions were not an insurmountable barrier to their dispersal.
A new specimen of Dicynodon traquairi (Newton) (Synapsida: Anomodontia) from the Late Permian (Tartarian) of northern Scotland
TLDR
The species Dicynodon traquairi is distinct from D. lacerti-ceps, in having narrowly separated ptery-goids, with no indication of transverse flanges, a pinealsunk deeply between the postorbitals, and a deep grooveonthedorsalsurfaceofthelowerjawsymphysis.
Cranial anatomy and phylogenetic position of Suminia getmanovi, a basal anomodont (Amniota: Therapsida) from the Late Permian of Eastern Europe
TLDR
A cladistic analysis suggests that a «dicynodont-type» masticatory architecture, with an expanded adductor musculature and sliding jaw articulation, may have originated prior to the advent of the (Venyukovioidea+( Galeops +Dicynadontia)) clade.
Phylogenetic analysis of Russian Permian dicynodonts (Therapsida: Anomodontia): implications for Permian biostratigraphy and Pangaean biogeography
TLDR
The phylogeny presented here suggests that the genus Dicynodon is paraphyletic, and there appears to be some endemism among Late Permian dicynodont faunas, but a Gondwanan origin is equally likely given the data at hand.
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.
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.
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,
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.
The basicranium of dicynodonts (Synapsida) and its use in phylogenetic analysis
TLDR
Parsimony analysis and the character compatability permutation test suggest that the data set contains significant hierarchical structure, interpreted as a result of phylogeny, and the most parsimonious tree broadly agrees with all recent hypotheses on the relationships among dicynodonts.
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.
