Abstract A mammalian upper molariform tooth recovered from the Late Triassic (Carnian) Tiki Formation of the South Rewa Gondwana Basin, India, is described as a new taxon, Tikitherium copei, gen. et sp. nov. Coming from such an ancient horizon, the tooth is remarkable in having on its crown, which is supported by three roots, three buccally placed cusps forming an obtuse triangle, another prominent cusp with two associated shearing crests in the posterolingual corner, and a talon-like… 
A new hybodont shark (Chondrichthyes, Elasmobranchii) from the Upper Triassic Tiki Formation of India with remarks on its dental histology and biostratigraphy
Abstract. A new lonchidiid genus, Pristrisodus, from the Upper Triassic Tiki Formation of India is described based on multiple, well-preserved, isolated teeth. Comparative analysis resulted in
The Mandible and Dentition of Borealestes serendipitus (Docodonta) from the Middle Jurassic of Skye, Scotland
ABSTRACT The Middle Jurassic docodont Borealestes serendipitus was the first Mesozoic mammal found in Scotland over 40 years ago. Its affinities and morphology have remained poorly understood.
A New Late Triassic Traversodontid Cynodont (Therapsida, Eucynodontia) from India
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis places Ruberodon within the clade containing Gomphodontosuchus, Menadon, Protuberum, Scalenodontoides, and the multispecific Exaeretodon, which forms a sister taxon to E. statisticae and is more advanced than E. riograndensis and E. argentinus.
Reigitherium (Meridiolestida, Mesungulatoidea) an Enigmatic Late Cretaceous Mammal from Patagonia, Argentina: Morphology, Affinities, and Dental Evolution
TLDR
A Dental Topography Analysis comparing Reigitherium and its sister taxon Peligrotherium to Cretaceous and Cenozoic therians demonstrates functional similarity between the mesungulatoids and South American marsupial taxa that succeed them in the small-to medium-sized herbivore niche during the Paleocene.
A record of new lungfishes (Osteichthyes: Dipnoi) from the Carnian (Upper Triassic) of India
ABSTRACT Numerous tooth plates of different types were recovered from the Upper Triassic Tiki Formation of India. Sharp crested tooth plates with five acute ridges, tubercles on the crests, robust
New Jurassic mammaliaform sheds light on early evolution of mammal-like hyoid bones
TLDR
A Jurassic fossil shows that early premammalian ancestors possessed hyoids similar to those seen in mammals today, and a new Jurassic docodontan mammaliaform found in China that is preserved with the hyoid bones is reported.
EARLIEST LIZARD FROM THE LATE TRIASSIC (CARNIAN) OF INDIA
Currently there are no confirmed reports of lizards before Jurassic (Evans, 2003). The earliest record of true lizards is from the Early-Middle Jurassic Kota Formation of the PranhitaGodavai basin,
Mammal-Like Tooth from the Upper Triassic of Poland
Recent Triassic discoveries have extended the record of near-mammals (Mammaliaformes) back to the Norian, about 215 Ma, and reveal a significant diversity of Late Triassic (Norian-Rhaetian) forms. We
Cranial morphology of a new phytosaur (Diapsida, Archosauria) from the Upper Triassic of India: implications for phytosaur phylogeny and biostratigraphy
Detailed description and phylogenetic assessment of a phytosaur skull collected from the Tiki Formation of the Rewa Gondwana Basin of India and earlier diagnosed as Parasuchus hislopi, show that it
A new cynodont from the Upper Triassic Los Colorados Formation (Argentina, South America) reveals a novel paleobiogeographic context for mammalian ancestors
Probainognathia is a derived lineage of cynodonts which encompass Mammalia as their crown-group. The rich record of probainognathians from the Carnian of Argentina contrasts with their Norian

A probable pseudo-tribosphenic upper molar from the late Jurassic of China and the early radiation of the Holotheria
TLDR
A three-cusped, mammalian upper molar recovered from the type locality of Shuotherium dongi Chow and Rich, 1982 in the Late Jurassic, Upper Shaximiao Formation Sichuan, China indicates a greater antiquity and diversity of the Tribosphenida than previously thought.
A Middle Jurassic mammal from Madagascar
The lower molars of tribosphenic mammals (marsupials, placentals and their extinct allies) are marked, primitively, by a basined heel (talonid) acting as the mortar to the pestle of a large inner
Reassessment of the late Triassic symmetrodont mammal Woutersia
TLDR
Though too large to be attributed to W. butleri, this tooth exhibits a t a higher degree some characters already detected in the latter species, suggesting that it could still belong to Woutersia; but in that case, its sharing of some derived characters with upper molars of docodonts implies a t least a certain parallelism between the new family WOUtersiidae and primitive Docodonta.

The first pre-Rhaetic therian mammal
The earliest mammals in the fossil record are recognized by their multicusped and multiple-rooted cheek teeth, and in south-west Britain they appear abruptly in sediments that postdate the Rhaetic
Dual origin of tribosphenic mammals
TLDR
Phylogenetic and morphometric analyses including these newly discovered taxa suggest a different interpretation: that mammals with tribosphenic molars are not monophyletic.
A new docodont from the Forest Marble
TLDR
The new docodont is remarkable in having a well-defined ‘pseudotalonid’ lying mesial to the “trigonid”, and the upper molars are functionally similar to the quadritubercular molars of the Placentalia.
