Faunal Overview of the Mud Hill Locality from the Early Permian Vale Formation of Taylor County, Texas

Abstract. The Texas red beds represent one of the richest series of early Permian deposits in the world. In particular, the Clear Fork Group has produced a diverse assemblage of temnospondyls, early

New occurrences of Ichniotherium and Striatichnium from the Lower Permian Kildare Capes Formation, Prince Edward Island, Canada: palaeoenvironmental and biostratigraphic implications

Abstract:  Tracks and trackways of the vertebrate ichnotaxon Ichniotherium sphaerodactylum and a trace of the invertebrate ichnotaxon Striatichnium bromackerense are described for the first time in

The Moroccan diplocaulid: the last lepospondyl, the single one on Gondwana

These animals are the only known Gondwanian lepospondyls and their unique co-occurrence with pareiasaurs strengthens the hypotheses of climate-controlled endemism in the end-Permian Pangea.

THE APPENDICULAR SKELETON OF ERYOPS MEGACEPHALUS COPE, 1877 (TEMNOSPONDYLI: ERYOPOIDEA) FROM THE LOWER PERMIAN OF NORTH AMERICA

The presence of previously unrecognized synapomorphies in the appendicular skeleton of Eryops provides evidence for an alternative hypothesis of relationships of early tetrapods, suggesting that the Temnospondyli and seymouriamorphs plus diadectomorphs are sister taxa.

The westernmost occurrence of Gnathorhiza in the Triassic, with a discussion of the stratigraphic and palaeogeographic distribution of the genus

Abstract. The paper refines the taxonomic assignment of the only representative of the dipnoan genus Gnathorhiza from the Lower Triassic of Poland. It is assigned here to Gnathorhiza otschevi on the

THE VERTEBRATE FAUNA OF THE UPPER PERMIAN OF NIGER. IV. NIGERPETON RICQLESI (TEMNOSPONDYLI: COCHLEOSAURIDAE), AND THE EDOPOID COLONIZATION OF GONDWANA

The discovery of Nigerpeton strengthens support for the hypothesis that West Africa hosted an endemic fauna at the close of the Paleozoic Era and proposes that Late Carboniferous and Permian edopoids were geographically widespread and that they twice crossed the Central Pangean mountain chain (between Laurussia and Gondwana) during their evolution.

To be or not to be heavier: The role of dermal bones in the buoyancy of the Late Triassic temnospondyl amphibian Metoposaurus krasiejowensis

Stereospondyli are a clade of large aquatic temnospondyls known to have evolved a large dermal pectoral girdle. Among the Stereospondyli, metoposaurids in particular possess large interclavicles and

Cranial anatomy and systematics of Dendrerpeton cf. helogenes (Tetrapoda, Temnospondyli) from the Pennsylvanian of Joggins, revisited through micro‐CT scanning

The Joggins Fossil Cliffs constitute an upper Carboniferous (Pennsylvanian) locality in Nova Scotia (Canada). This site, known for the rich record of fossils preserved in the palaeoenvironment in

A new species of Sclerocephalus with a fully ossified endocranium gives insight into braincase evolution in temnospondyls

Abstract. The late Paleozoic temnospondyl Sclerocephalus formed an aquatic top predator in various central European lakes of the late Carboniferous and early Permian. Despite hundreds of specimens
