  • Some recent morphological analyses have brought into question the monophyly of Lissamphibia (frogs, salamanders, and caecilians). In these analyses, brachystelechid “microsaurs” are found to be sister group to caecilians. To test this hypothesis, the holotype specimen of the brachystelechid Carrolla craddocki was submitted to high‐resolution X‐ray computed tomography to gain insight into the nature of the morphology supporting the potential relationship between brachystelechids and caecilians… CONTINUE READING
