ABSTRACT Tambaroter carrolli is a new genus and species of medium-sized ostodolepid ‘microsaur’ from the Lower Permian Tambach Formation, lowermost formational unit of the Upper Rotliegend, Thuringia, central Germany. Based on a single skull, it is the first ‘microsaur’ to be described from this formation and the first vertebrate fossil known from the Tambach Formation outside of the well-known, nearby Bromacker locality. It possesses typical ostodolepid features, including presence of a… 
A new “microsaur” (Amphibia; Lepospondyli) from the Rotliegend of the Saar–Palatinate region (Carboniferous/Permian transition; West Germany)
Altenglanerpetonschroederi n. sp. is documented by a skeleton preserved in dorsal view from the Altenglan Formation of the Saar–Nahe Basin. The only known species of this new genus has a massive
Cranial Morphology of Recumbirostrans (Lepospondyli) from the Permian of Kansas and Nebraska, and Early Morphological Evolution Inferred by Micro-Computed Tomography
ABSTRACT ‘Microsaurs’ (Lepospondyli) were a group of tetrapods whose fossil record spanned the Mississippian—Early Permian, and have sometimes been implicated in the origins of lissamphibians
Two New Species of the Genus Batropetes (Tetrapoda, Lepospondyli) from the Central European Rotliegend (Basal Permian) in Germany
TLDR
The functional interpretation of the appendicular skeleton and the skull morphology suggest that all Batropetes species were terrestrial, living near the lakes in which they were preserved, and appear to have fed on small arthropods in the leaf litter or in the upper zone of the soil.
New material of the ‘microsaur’ Llistrofus from the cave deposits of Richards Spur, Oklahoma and the paleoecology of the Hapsidopareiidae
TLDR
It is proposed that Llistrofus may have been fossorial but was probably incapable of active burrowing in the fashion of recumbirostrans, which had more consolidated and reinforced skulls.
New Primitive Caseid (Synapsida, Caseasauria) from the Early Permian of Germany
TLDR
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.
First European Record of a Varanodontine (Synapsida: Varanopidae): Member of a Unique Early Permian Upland Paleoecosystem, Tambach Basin, Central Germany
A new genus and species of varanodontine varanopid, Tambacarnifex unguifalcatus, is described on the basis of the greater portion of the postcranium and a closely associated partial left dentary from
Revised Description of the Early Permian Recumbirostran “Microsaur” Nannaroter mckinziei Based on New Fossil Material and Computed Tomographic Data

Cranial Morphology of the Carboniferous-Permian Tetrapod Brachydectes newberryi (Lepospondyli, Lysorophia): New Data from µCT
TLDR
The morphology of the skull of a partial growth series of the lysorophian Brachydectes newberryi is studied using x-ray micro-computed tomography and reveals similarities between the braincase of BrachydECTes and brachystelechid recumbirostrans, corroborating prior work suggesting a close relationship between these taxa.
Micro-CT Study of Rhynchonkos stovalli (Lepospondyli, Recumbirostra), with Description of Two New Genera
TLDR
The morphology of the holotype and three specimens previously attributed to R. stovalli are studied with the use of micro-computed x-ray tomography, resulting in proposed similarities that are more ambiguous than previous descriptions suggest.
