Abstract The dicynodont species “Cryptocynodon” parringtoni von Huene, 1942 was described from a single poorly preserved specimen collected from the Upper Permian Kawinga Formation, Ruhuhu Basin, Tanzania. No additional specimens have been referred to the species since its erection. Two new specimens of “C.” parringtoni, which were collected from the Kawinga Formation in 1933, are described. The holotype and new specimens share tusks, the absence of postcanine teeth, a shortened snout… 
Distinctive Emydopoid Dicynodont (Therapsida, Anomodontia) Mandibles from the Permian Ruhuhu and Usili Formations (Songea Group), Ruhuhu Basin, Tanzania
ABSTRACT Dicynodont therapsids were discovered in the Permian Usili Formation (Ruhuhu Basin, Tanzania) in the 1930s and in the Permian Ruhuhu Formation in the 1960s, with further collections being
Redescription of Digalodon rubidgei , an emydopoid dicynodont (Therapsida, Anomodontia) from the Late Permian of South Africa
TLDR
Inclusion of Digalodon in a recent analysis of anomodont phylogeny recovers it as a kistecephalian emydopoid, specifically as the sister taxon to the clade containing the remaining kistecephalians.
New Dicynodonts (Therapsida, Anomodontia) and Updated Tetrapod Stratigraphy of the Permian Ruhuhu Formation (Songea Group, Ruhuhu Basin) of Southern Tanzania
ABSTRACT Permian tetrapod fossils were discovered in the Tanzanian Ruhuhu Formation in 1963, but they have received far less attention than the tetrapods of the overlying Usili (formerly Kawinga)
The Permian Dicynodont Colobodectes cluveri (Therapsida, Anomodontia), with Notes on Its Ontogeny and Stratigraphic Range in the Karoo Basin, South Africa
ABSTRACT The dicynodont Colobodectes cluveri was described from a single specimen in 2003. Although the holotype possessed a distinctive combination of primitive, derived, and autapomorphic
A new tusked cistecephalid dicynodont (Therapsida, Anomodontia) from the upper Permian upper Madumabisa Mudstone Formation, Luangwa Basin, Zambia
TLDR
Increased knowledge of cistecephalid diversity shows that they vary in functionally relevant characters, such as degree of inflation of the bony vestibule and the morphology of the scapula and humerus, indicating the need for a more nuanced approach to the relationship between form, function and ecology in the clade.
A New Species of Emydops (Synapsida, Anomodontia) and a Discussion of Dental Variability and Pathology in Dicynodonts
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis supports the sister-taxon relationship of the two species of Emydops and their position at the base of E mydopidae, and concludes that E. oweni has both tusked and tuskless morphs.
A New Dicynodont (Therapsida: Anomodontia) from the Permian of Southern Brazil and Its Implications for Bidentalian Origins
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis indicates that R. procurvidens is the earliest and most basal member of Bidentalia, a cosmopolitan clade that includes Permian and Triassic dicynodonts whose dentition is usually reduced to a pair of maxillary tusks.
A New Endothiodont Dicynodont (Therapsida, Anomodontia) from the Permian Ruhuhu Formation (Songea Group) of Tanzania and Its Feeding System
ABSTRACT Cranial material of the dicynodont Endothiodon from the middle fossiliferous horizon of the Permian Ruhuhu Formation (Ruhuhu Basin, Tanzania) is described as a new species, E. tolani.
A new record of Procynosuchus delaharpeae (Therapsida: Cynodontia) from the Upper Permian Usili Formation, Tanzania
Procynosuchus, the best-known Permian cynodont, has a remarkably broad geographic range, with records stretching from southern Africa to Europe. Fossils of Procynosuchus are most common in the Upper
A Redescription of Kunpania scopulusa, a Bidentalian Dicynodont (Therapsida, Anomodontia) from the ?Guadalupian of Northwestern China
ABSTRACT Permian dicynodonts were discovered in strata exposed on the flanks of the Bogda Mountains (Xinjiang, China) in 1928. Nearly all known specimens were collected in the Guodikeng Formation (=

The cranial anatomy of Kombuisia frerensis Hotton (Synapsida, Dicynodontia) and a new phylogeny of anomodont therapsids
TLDR
The general topology of this phylogeny supports the main aspects of recent hypotheses of anomodont relationships, and not only resolves critical nodes at the base of the Dicynodontia that were previously obscured by polytomies, but also introduces new hypotheses of relationships.
REAPPRAISAL OF GEIKIA LOCUSTICEPS (THERAPSIDA: DICYNODONTIA) FROM THE UPPER PERMIAN OF TANZANIA
TLDR
The relevance of the orientation of the postorbital bone to Permian pristerodontian systematics is discussed, and a phylogenetic analysis and new diagnosis for the family Geikiidae are presented.
REDESCRIPTION, PHYLOGENETIC POSITION, AND STRATIGRAPHIC SIGNIFICANCE OF THE DICYNODONT GENUS ODONTOCYCLOPS (SYNAPSIDA: ANOMODONTIA)
TLDR
Cladistic analysis of a data set including Odontocyclops and 18 other well-known South African dicynodont genera does not support the hypothesis that Odontocryclops is a close relative of Dicynodon or of Triassic dicYNodonts such as Kannemeyeria, and a close relationship with Oudenodon and Rhachiocephalus is proposed.
A new basal dicynodont from the Upper Permian of South Africa
TLDR
The skull of a small anomodont therapsid, from the Tapinocephalus Assemblage Zone in Northern Cape Province, South Africa, represents a new basal dicynodont, and a phylogenetic analysis indicates that Colobodectes is the basalmost member of a dicYNodont clade that excludes Eodicynodon.
A NEW SPECIES OF DICYNODON FROM SINKIANG
TLDR
A second Permian dicynodont was recognized in the recently prepared material of Yuan's collection from Sinkiang, and represents a new species of this genus, named as Dicynodon tienshanensis.
CRANIAL ANATOMY AND TAXONOMY OF THE LATE PERMIAN DICYNODONT DIICTODON
TLDR
Reexamination of the cranial anatomy of the abundant Late Permian dicynodont Diictodon confirms suggestions that only one species, D. feliceps, is recognizable, and suggests that tusked and tuskless specimens do indeed represent distinct biological categories, but it seems highly probable that they are divisions within a single species rather than distinct species.
Phylogenetic analysis of Russian Permian dicynodonts (Therapsida: Anomodontia): implications for Permian biostratigraphy and Pangaean biogeography
TLDR
The phylogeny presented here suggests that the genus Dicynodon is paraphyletic, and there appears to be some endemism among Late Permian dicynodont faunas, but a Gondwanan origin is equally likely given the data at hand.
AN INTEGRATIVE APPROACH TO DISTINGUISHING THE LATE PERMIAN DICYNODONT SPECIES OUDENODON BAINII AND TROPIDOSTOMA MICROTREMA (THERAPSIDA: ANOMODONTIA)
TLDR
Results show that the bone histology of T. microtrema is comparable with that of O.’bainii, emphasizing their similarity, and multiple lines of evidence suggest that the two morphotypes are regarded best as distinct species.
Phylogenetic evidence for and implications of a dual origin of propaliny in anomodont therapsids (Synapsida)
TLDR
The results of this investigation suggest that a dual origin of propaliny within anomodonts is not unlikely, but it depends largely on the interpretation of equivocal or poorly preserved features in some critical taxa, especially Otsheria.
The basicranium of dicynodonts (Synapsida) and its use in phylogenetic analysis
TLDR
Parsimony analysis and the character compatability permutation test suggest that the data set contains significant hierarchical structure, interpreted as a result of phylogeny, and the most parsimonious tree broadly agrees with all recent hypotheses on the relationships among dicynodonts.
