The affinities of three problematic groups of elongate, burrowing reptiles (amphisbaenians, dibamids and snakes) are reassessed through a phylogenetic analysis of all the major groups of squamates, including the important fossil taxaSineoamphisbaena, mosasauroids andPachyrhachis; 230 phylogenetically informative osteological characters were evaluated in 22 taxa. Snakes (includingPachyrhachis) are anguimorphs, being related firstly to large marine mosasauroids, and secondly to monitor lizards… Expand
