ABSTRACT We describe a new taxon of lepidosauromorph reptile, Vinitasaura lizae, based on a nearly complete dentary and the posterior portion of a second dentary from the Upper Triassic (upper

An Enigmatic Neodiapsid Reptile from the Middle Triassic of England

ABSTRACT The fossil record of early diapsids is sparse, specimens are uncommon and often incomplete, and phylogenetic relationships are hard to determine. A new taxon of early diapsid, Feralisaurus

ABSTRACT The Kilmaluag Formation on the Isle of Skye, Scotland, provides one of the richest Mesozoic vertebrate fossil assemblages in the UK, and is among the richest globally for Middle Jurassic

The Jurassic rise of squamates as supported by lepidosaur disparity and evolutionary rates

The squamates (lizards, snakes, and relatives) today comprise more than 10,000 species, and yet their sister group, the Rhynchocephalia, is represented by a single species today, the tuatara. The

New information on the Jurassic lepidosauromorph Marmoretta oxoniensis

The earliest known crown‐group lepidosaurs are known from the Middle Triassic; however, their stem group is poorly sampled, with only a few representative fossils found. This is partly due to the

A lepidosauromorph specimen from the Middle Jurassic (Bathonian) Moskvoretskaya Formation of the Moscow Region, Russia

ABSTRACT A fragmentary diapsid left maxilla from the Bathonian Peski locality in Moscow Region, previously referred to Choristodera, is identified as Lepidosauromorpha indet. This specimen represents

Ecomorphological diversification of squamates in the Cretaceous

It is confirmed that the major expansion of dietary functional morphology happened before these diversifications, in the mid-Cretaceous, 110–90 Ma, which established modern levels of squamate feeding ecomorphology before the major steps in species diversification, confirming decoupling of diversity and disparity.

Structural and environmental constraints on reduction of paired appendages among vertebrates

An overview of the distribution of paired appendage reduction across vertebrates is provided while examining the ecological affinities of finless and limbless clades and correlations suggest that a complex environment or a fossorial habit is a driving force leading to appendage loss.

Fossil lizards and worm lizards (Reptilia, Squamata) from the Neogene and Quaternary of Europe: an overview

Lizards were and still are an important component of the European herpetofauna. The modern European lizard fauna started to set up in the Miocene and a rich fossil record is known from Neogene and
