A new species of the sphenacodontid synapsid Dimetrodon , D . teutonis , is described on the basis of a single, adult specimen consisting of a large portion of the presacral vertebral column. The holotype was collected from the Lower Permian Tambach Formation, lowermost formational unit of the Upper Rotliegend, of the Bromacker quarry locality in the midregion of the Thuringian Forest near Gotha, central Germany. This is the first record of the genus outside of North America and, therefore…

New materials of Dimetrodon teutonis (Synapsida: Sphenacodontidae) from the Lower Permian of Germany

Additional specimens of the sphenacodontid synapsid Dimetrodon teutonis. including a maxilla, dorsal vertebrae, scapulocoracoids, a humerus, and partial, articulated hindlimbs that consist of the

Dimetrodon (Synapsida: Sphenacodontidae) from the cave system at Richards Spur, OK, USA, and a comparison of Early Permian–aged vertebrate paleoassemblages

The morphology and histology of a small neural spine with the distinctive figure-8 shape attributable to Dimetrodon is described for the first time, suggesting not only that this animal was more widespread than previously thought, but that there are different patterns of Early Permian synapsid evolution in different ecological settings.

Abstract— We add to the sparse record of Dimetrodon from New Mexico by documenting three specimenscollected from two known Lower Permian Abo Formation vertebrate fossil localities that had not

The holotypic isolated maxilla of the early sphenacodontian Haptodus grandis from the Cisuralian of England is revisited and reveals a mosaic distribution of maxillary features, most significantly regarding the precanine region.

Dimetrodon (amniota: synapsida: sphenacodontidae) from the lower permina Abo Formation, Socorro County, New Mexico

D dorsal vertebrae and neural spine fragments of a small specimen of Dimetrodon are document from the middle part of the Lower Permian Abo Formation in Socorro County, New Mexico, which is the only Early Permians locality that yields the taxon.

New Primitive Caseid (Synapsida, Caseasauria) from the Early Permian of Germany

A phylogenetic analysis posits the Late Pennsylvanian Eocasea martini Reisz and Fröbisch, 2014, as the basalmost member of the monophyletic Caseidae and the later occurring middle Early Permian Bromacker caseid as the sister taxon of the remaining late Early and Middle Permians members of the clade.

Georgenthalia clavinasica, A New Genus and Species of Dissorophoid Temnospondyl from the Early Permian of Germany, and the Relationships of the Family Amphibamidae

Several features support a highly terrestrial habitus of G. clavinasica, which is consistent with the interpretation of the fossiliferous beds of the Bromacker quarry as representing an upland terrestrial environment in which limnic conditions were characterized by ephemeral lakes and ponds.

Permo-Carboniferous Paleoecology and Morphotypic Series

The “trends” of evolutionary change from Hylonomus to Thrinaxodon can best be seen if these two and Haptodus are used as an evolutionary series, the stages that are missing interpolated, and the roles of the other genera evaluated on the basis of this more or less idealized, conceptual series.
