A new reptile, Kyrgyzsaurus bukhanchenkoi gen. et sp. nov., from the Triassic (Madygen Formation) of southwestern Kyrgyzstan is described based on the anterior part of the skeleton (skull, cervical and anterior dorsal vertebrae, ribs, pectoral girdle) and skin imprints. This is the most archaic representative of the family Drepanosauridae (Archosauromorpha, Diapsida). The most prominent features of the new form are the shortened lower jaw, numerous teeth, granular body osteoderms, large… 
Using Manual Ungual Morphology to Predict Substrate Use in the Drepanosauromorpha and the Description of a New Species
ABSTRACT Fossils of drepanosauromorphs, a clade of non-saurian diapsids, were once considered relatively rare in the Chinle Formation of the southwestern United States as well as in Upper Triassic
The Mesozoic Lacustrine Revolution
The Mesozoic Lacustrine Revolution (MLR) represents a significant evolutionary event for continental ecosystems. Evidence from the ichnologic and body-fossil records yields major insights into the
Late Triassic Terrestrial Tetrapods: Biostratigraphy, Biochronology and Biotic Events

The Permian and Triassic in the Albanian Alps
The sedimentary succession of the Permian to Middle Triassic of the Albanian Alps is described, as part of the eastern Adria passive margin towards the Tethys. A carbonate ramp deepening towards NE
Mass extinctions drove increased global faunal cosmopolitanism on the supercontinent Pangaea
TLDR
It is found that mass extinctions did increase faunal cosmopolitanism across Pangaea during the late Palaeozoic and early Mesozoic, and shared patterns in both biotic crises suggest thatmass extinctions have predictable influences on animal distribution and may shed light on biodiversity loss in extant ecosystems.

TLDR
The skull of the holotype of the Late Triassic diapsid reptile Megalancosaurus preonensis is described, revealing affinities with archosauromorph reptiles along with striking similarities with basal pterosaurs, apart for the absence of an antorbital fenestra.

TLDR
It is suggested that Longisquama's elongate integumentary appendages are probably homologous with avian feathers and antedate the feathers of Archaeopteryx, the first known bird from the Late Jurassic.
