  • The fossil records of the four living reptilian orders can be traced into the Triassic. The earlier ancestry of the turtles has not been established. Squamates and rhyncho‐cephalians evolved from the Late Permian eosuchians; crocodiles from the thecodonts. The ancestry of the eosuchians and thecodonts is to be found in the central stock of Permo‐Carboniferous reptiles, the captorhinomorphs. The earliest captorhino‐morphs, from the Lower Pennsylvanian, are already fully developed reptiles. The… CONTINUE READING
