KurzfassungKleinwüchsige Traversodontiden (Therapsida, Cynodontia) sind seltene Bestandteile in spättriassischen terrestrischen Faunen Westeuropas.Habayia halbardieri n. gen., n. sp., beschrieben und diskutiert in der vorliegenden Arbeit, basiert auf einem einzigen isolierten oberen Postcaninen aus dem Rhät von Habay-la-Vieille (Süd-Belgien). Ein weiterer winziger Zahn von der gleichen Lokalität wird vorläufig als ein traversodontider unterer Postcanin identifiziert. Kleinwüchsige… Expand
A traversodont cynodont from the Middle Triassic (Ladinian) of Baden-Württemberg (Germany)
Nanogomphodon wildi n. gen., n. sp. is based on a tiny lower postcanine tooth from the lower Lettenkeuper (Lower Keuper or Erfurt Formation; Ladinian) of Michelbach an der Bilz (Baden-Württemberg).Expand
Siriusgnathus niemeyerorum (Eucynodontia: Gomphodontia): The youngest South American traversodontid?
Abstract Traversodontidae is a less inclusive clade of cynognathian cynodonts that lived during the Triassic. Recently, a traversodontid from the southern Brazilian Triassic beds was described –Expand
A new traversodontid cynodont with a peculiar postcanine dentition from the Middle/Late Triassic of Namibia and dental evolution in basal gomphodonts
We here present a new gomphodont cynodont from the Ladinian/Carnian Upper Omingonde Formation of central Namibia. Etjoia dentitransitus gen. et sp. nov. is a medium-sized (skull length of 88.5 mm)Expand
Anatomy and Phylogenetic Relationships of Boreogomphodon jeffersoni (Cynodontia: Gomphodontia) from the Upper Triassic of Virginia
Phylogenetic analysis suggests the existence of a clade comprising Boreogomphodon plus two other taxa in the Northern Hemisphere that is the sister group to most other known Middle and Late Triassic traversodonts from Gondwana. Expand
New cynodonts (Therapsida, Eucynodontia) from the Late Triassic of India and their significances
The Upper Triassic Tiki Formation of India has yielded several new cynodont taxa, which are described on the basis of multiple isolated teeth and a jaw fragment, and such a tooth morphology occupies an intermediate position between the non-mammalian Cynodonts and the early mammals. Expand
Abstract Largely fragmentary fossils from sites in New South Wales, Victoria, and Queensland, Australia document terrestrial and marine vertebrate faunas of Aptian–Albian age. The natural cast of aExpand
The Late Triassic Record of Cynodonts: Time of Innovations in the Mammalian Lineage
The Late Triassic constitutes a pivotal time lapse, marked by an expansion of the geographical distribution and diversification of cynodonts, and summarizes the main morphologies represented in the lineage, including Mammaliaformes, a key group in the authors' understanding of the early evolution of mammals.

Late Triassic dinosaur teeth from southern Belgium
Abstract Isolated Dinosaur teeth have been discovered in the Upper Triassic locality of Habay-la-Vieille, in southern Belgium. Ornithischia are represented by three dental morphotypes; two of themExpand
Early Evolutionary History of the Synapsida
Procrustes analysis of the two best-preserved specimens of these species allowed recognition of further shape differences: M. oligocynus has a taller but narrower cranium, taller snout, temporal opening more expanded laterally, pterygoid process located more anteriorly, and smaller suborbital vacuity.

The Ischigualastian represents a key land vertebrate faunachron for the correlation of Late Triassic terrestrial deposits worldwide, based on the abundant and diverse tetrapod fauna of theExpand


Late Triassic cynodonts from Saint-Nicolas-de-Port (north-eastern France)
Numerous isolated cynodont teeth have been collected from the Late Triassic of Saint-Nicolas-de-Port (north-eastern France). The material is very diversified and the following taxa are recognized:Expand
The Late Triassic locality of Saint-Nicolas-de-Port (Meurthe-et-Moselle, France) has yielded numerous isolated teeth belonging to archosauriform reptiles. The following tooth groups can beExpand

ABSTRACT We describe a recently discovered upper postcanine tooth of a large traversodont cynodont from the Wolfville Formation (Upper Triassic; Fundy Group, Newark Supergroup) of Nova Scotia,Expand
Une nouvelle dent d'Haramiyidae (Thomasia woutersi Butler & Macintyre 1994, Mammalia, Allotheria) di rhétien d'Habay-la-Vieille (Lorraine belge) : Jurassic - Triassic vertebrates
A second perfectly preserved haramiyid tooth (Haramiya type 1, according to Sigogneau-Russell's classification, 1989) from the Rhaetian locality of Habay-la-Vieille, in Belgian Lorraine, is describedExpand
Review of the British Haramiyidae (? Mammalia, Allotheria), their Molar Occlusion and Relationships
Haramiyid teeth from the Rhaeto-Lias of Holwell Quarry, England, were re-examined in the light of the large sample from Saint-Nicolas-de-Port, and support is given for ordinal separation from the Multituberculata, as Haramiyida. Expand
