Nanogomphodon wildi n. gen., n. sp. is based on a tiny lower postcanine tooth from the lower Lettenkeuper (Lower Keuper or Erfurt Formation; Ladinian) of Michelbach an der Bilz (Baden-Württemberg). It represents the first record of a traversodont cynodont from the Middle Triassic of Europe and exhibits a distinctive combination of dental features. Along with recent discoveries of other traversodont taxa from the Upper Triassic of eastern North America,Nanogomphodon indicates the existence of a… 
A New Late Triassic Traversodontid Cynodont (Therapsida, Eucynodontia) from India
Phylogenetic analysis places Ruberodon within the clade containing Gomphodontosuchus, Menadon, Protuberum, Scalenodontoides, and the multispecific Exaeretodon, which forms a sister taxon to E. statisticae and is more advanced than E. riograndensis and E. argentinus.
A new traversodontid cynodont with a peculiar postcanine dentition from the Middle/Late Triassic of Namibia and dental evolution in basal gomphodonts
Dentition evolution in basal cynognathians likely resulted from three shifts in feeding ecologies, from a carnivorous to an omnivorous diet in basal-most gomphodonts, followed by an adaptation to a specialized feeding ecology possibly made of insects and hard plant material in traditional ‘trirachodontids’, then an increase in the consumption of plant-material in basal traversodontidae.
The Traversodontid Cynodont Mandagomphodon hirschsoni from the Middle Triassic of the Ruhuhu Valley, Tanzania
Mandagomphodon hirschsoni (gen. nov., comb. nov.) is one of three species of traversodontid cynodont placed in Scalenodon [type species S. angustifrons (Parrington, 1946)] by Crompton (1972). It is
New Material Of Menadon besairiei (Cynodontia: Traversodontidae) From the Triassic Of Madagascar
A phylogenetic analysis incorporating information from the new specimens supports the placement of Menadon as the sister taxon to the clade Exaeretodon + Scalenodontoides, and shows that this taxon had a well-developed internarial bar and four upper incisors.
A New Large Gomphodont from the Triassic of South Africa and Its Implications for Gondwanan Biostratigraphy
ABSTRACT A partial skull (BP/1/7976) of a very large cynodont from the Middle Triassic Cynognathus Assemblage Zone (Cricodon-Ufudocyclops subzone) of South Africa is described. The specimen
Anatomy and Phylogenetic Relationships of Boreogomphodon jeffersoni (Cynodontia: Gomphodontia) from the Upper Triassic of Virginia
Phylogenetic analysis suggests the existence of a clade comprising Boreogomphodon plus two other taxa in the Northern Hemisphere that is the sister group to most other known Middle and Late Triassic traversodonts from Gondwana.
No dicynodont in the Keuper - a reconsideration of the occurrence of aff. Dinodontosaurus in the Middle Triassic of Southern Germany
An isolated humerus, attributed to a dicynodont therapsid and identified as aff. Dinodontosaurus, from the Lower Keuper (Middle Ladinian, Middle Triassic) of southwestern Germany is redescribed. An
Cynodont Teeth from the Carnian (Late Triassic) of Northern Italy
A jaw fragment with three teeth preserved, collected from the Gorno Formation (Carnian, Upper Triassic) of Lombardy (It− aly) is described. The teeth are transversely elongated, three− cusped and
Ontogeny in the Malagasy Traversodontid Dadadon isaloi and a Reconsideration of its Phylogenetic Relationships
Denticulated incisors evolved multiple times in traversodontid evolution (in massetognathines and Arctotraversodon), and thus this group represents another possibility (besides various archosauromorphs) to be considered when attempting to identify isolated Triassic teeth with denticulated carinae lacking cingula.
The Late Triassic Record of Cynodonts: Time of Innovations in the Mammalian Lineage
The Late Triassic constitutes a pivotal time lapse, marked by an expansion of the geographical distribution and diversification of cynodonts, and summarizes the main morphologies represented in the lineage, including Mammaliaformes, a key group in the authors' understanding of the early evolution of mammals.

A Late Triassic traversodont cynodont from the Newark Supergroup of North Carolina
ABSTRACT A new traversodont cynodont, Plinthogomphodon herpetairus, is described on the basis of a partial snout from Late Triassic strata of the Newark Supergroup exposed in the Deep River basin
Evolutionary Patterns Among Permo-Triassic Therapsids*
Synapsids form the bulk of tetrapod diversity from Early Permian to Middle Triassic times and thus can provide critical information on the nature of the Permo-Triassic extinction in the terrestrial realm.

Researches on the Structure, Organization, and Classification of the Fossil Reptilia. Part IX., Section 4. On the Gomphodontia
The Gomphodontia comprises animals with a Theriodont type of dentition, in which the molar teeth are expanded transversely, and have more or less tuberculate crowns, of the type shown in Diademodon .
