Abstract The Burgersdorp Formation in the Beaufort Group of the South African Karoo Basin records a diverse and rich vertebrate fauna that is referred biostratigraphically to the Cynognathus Assemblage Zone. Recent collecting efforts, and taxonomic and biostratigraphic studies on this formation, resulted in a proposed subdivision of the Cynognathus Assemblage Zone into three subzones informally known as A, B, and C. Cynodont fossils constitute an important component of the fauna of the… 
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
Biostratigraphy of the Cynognathus Assemblage Zone (Beaufort Group, Karoo Supergroup), South Africa
The Cynognathus Assemblage Zone is the youngest tetrapod biozone of the Beaufort Group (Tarkastad Subgroup, Karoo Supergroup). It is situated between the underlying Lystrosaurus declivis Assemblage
The First Occurrence of Cynognathus crateronotus (Cynodontia: Cynognathia) in Tanzania and Zambia, with Implications for the Age and Biostratigraphic Correlation of Triassic Strata in Southern Pangea
ABSTRACT Cynognathus crateronotus is a species of large carnivorous cynodont, first named and best known from the Triassic Burgersdorp Formation (Beaufort Group, Karoo Basin) of South Africa. Fossils
A new trirachodontid cynodont from the lower levels of the Burgersdorp Formation (Lower Triassic) of the Beaufort Group, South Africa and the cladistic relationships of Gondwanan gomphodonts
TLDR
A new trirachodontid cynodont is described from the base of the Burgersdorp Formation (Subzone A fauna of the Cynognathus Assemblage Zone), of the South African Karoo Basin and is characterized by circular to ovoid in outline upper postcanines and the absence of a maxillary platform lateral to the postcanine series.
A Middle Triassic Cynodont Fauna from Namibia and Its Implications for the Biogeography of Gondwana
ABSTRACT The upper Omingonde Formation of Namibia contains a diverse vertebrate fauna represented by amphibians, dicynodonts, archosaurs, therocephalians, and cynodonts, which is generally considered
A New Kannemeyeriiform Dicynodont (Ufudocyclops mukanelai, gen. et sp. nov.) from Subzone C of the Cynognathus Assemblage Zone, Triassic of South Africa, with Implications for Biostratigraphic Correlation with other African Triassic Faunas
ABSTRACT A new taxon of kannemeyeriiform dicynodont, Ufudocyclops mukanelai, is described based on a well-preserved skull from Subzone C of the Cynognathus Assemblage Zone, which are the youngest
The African cynodont Aleodon (Cynodontia, Probainognathia) in the Triassic of southern Brazil and its biostratigraphic significance
TLDR
The first occurrence of the enigmatic African probainognathian genus Aleodon in the Middle-early Late Triassic of several localities from the state of Rio Grande do Sul in southern Brazil is reported and a new species of Aleodon is proposed based on the specimens from Brazil.
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
THE CONTINENTAL TETRAPOD-BEARING TRIASSIC OF SOUTH BRAZIL
The Rosario do Sul Group is one of the better-known tetrapod-bearing continental deposits of Triassic age. It crops out in central Rio Grande do Sul, south Brazil, and has yielded a fauna of more
A New Silesaurid from the Upper Ntawere Formation of Zambia (Middle Triassic) Demonstrates the Rapid Diversification of Silesauridae (Avemetatarsalia, Dinosauriformes)
ABSTRACT Recent discoveries have shown that non-dinosaurian dinosauromorphs were morphologically diverse, globally distributed, and have a stratigraphic range extending into the Upper Triassic.

A large temnospondyl mandible from the Lystrosaurus Assemblage Zone (Early Triassic) of South Africa is referred to the higher-level taxon Trematosauridae. The mandible is remarkably similar to that
A new traversodontid cynodont from the Santa Maria Formation (Ladinian-Carnian) of southern Brazil, with a phylogenetic analysis of Gondwanan traversodontids
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis of traversodontids from Gondwana revealed a nonmonophyletic relationship for Scalenodon‘species’ from the Anisian Manda beds, and morphological trends of change in the dentition of traversdontids throughout the Triassic are suggested.
Three capitosaurs from the Triassic of South Africa: Parotosuchus africanus (Broom 1909); Kestrosaurus dreyeri Haughton 1925, and Parotosuchus dirus sp. Nov.
TLDR
Two members of the family Capitosauridae are redescribed after further preparation, namely Para!oluchus a(ricanus (Broom 1909) and Kestrasaurus dreyeri Haughton, 1925, and a new species, Parotosuchus dirus, is erected.
