Synopsis The phylogenetic intrarelationships of procolophonid parareptiles are determined via a comprehensive cladistic analysis using a data matrix of 21 taxa and 58 characters. Most taxa are included forthe first time in a phylogenetic analysis and 27 characters are novel. The relationships within the group are more firmly resolved than in previous analyses. Procolophoninae and Leptopleuroninae, two of the three traditional subdivisions of the Procolophonidae, are valid monophyletic groups… 
Alpha Taxonomy of the Russian Permian Procolophonoid Reptiles
TLDR
Re-examination indicates that Suchonosaurus is a member of the procolophonoid subfamily Procolophonidae based on the shape of the maxillary bone and the external naris, the laterally visible maxillary depression, and the number and type of maxillary teeth, and re-examination of the holotype of MicroPHon exiguus confirms that it is identical to the seymouriamorph specimens recently included in the genus Microphon.
An early‐diverging procolophonid from the lowermost Triassic of South America and the origins of herbivory in Procolophonoidea
Procolophonoidea was the only parareptile clade to survive the end‐Permian mass extinction, and they experienced a major adaptive radiation during the Triassic. The flourishing of procolophonoid
The phylogenetic position of Nyctiphruretus acudens, a parareptile from the Permian of Russia
TLDR
The results indicate that Nyctiphruretus is closely related to procolophonoids, pareiasaurs and other non-pareiasaurian Mezen River parareptiles but the interrelationships within this group remain unresolved, highlighting the need for more detailed descriptions and analyses of this enigmatic group of extinct reptiles.
A procolophonid reptile from the Lower Triassic of Australia
TLDR
A new procolophonid reptile from the Lower Triassic Arcadia Formation of Queensland, Australia is described on the basis of abundant cranial and postcranial remains, and its dentition suggests good capabilities of oral processing and shows instances of replacement.
Morphological diversity and biogeography of procolophonids (Amniota: Parareptilia)
TLDR
A recent phylogenetic analysis of procolophonid parareptiles is used as the basis for a study of morphological diversity (disparity) in these amniotes, and ancestral area analysis and dispersal–vicariance analysis show that South Africa was the most likely ancestral area forprocolophonids as a whole.
A New and Unusual Procolophonid Parareptile from the Lower Triassic Katberg Formation of South Africa
TLDR
Phonodus dutoitorum is the fifth procolophonoid species to be described from the Induan of the Karoo Basin, providing further support for the hypothesis that procolophoneoid evolution was not greatly perturbed by the end-Permian extinction event.
An additional specimen of owenettid procolophonoid from the Middle Triassic of Southern Brazil
TLDR
A morphological disparity analysis reveals no overlapped areas between the morphospace occupied by procolophonids and owenettids, reinforcing the existence of these two distinct groups.
The phylogenetic position of Nyctiphruretus acudens, a parareptile from the Permian of Russia Posición filogenética de Nyctiphruretus acudens, un parareptil del Pérmico de Rusia
TLDR
The results indicate that Nyctiphruretus is closely related to procolophonoids, pareiasaurs and other non-pareiasaurian Mezen River parareptiles but the interrelationships within this group remain unresolved, highlighting the need for more detailed descriptions and analyses of this enigmatic group of extinct reptiles.

ABSTRACT A collaborative field work program in the Triassic of Tanzania and Zambia has produced a plethora of new fossil material. Parareptiles, however, are rare, with only one procolophonoid

A reevaluation of early amniote phylogeny
TLDR
It is indicated that three major clades of amniotes extend from the present to the Palaeozoic, and these three clades are the Synapsida (including Mammalia), Parareptilia (including Testudines), and Eureptili (including Sauria).
A Reappraisal Of Coletta Seca, A Basal Procolophonoid Reptile From The Lower Triassic Of South Africa
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis identifies Coletta as the sister taxon of the clade Procolophonidae, and suggests that Procolophonoidea originated and diversified initially in Gondwana during the Permian, prior to ProColophonidae achieving a cosmopolitan distribution in the succeeding Triassic.
Historical Burden In Systematics And The Interrelationships Of ‘Parareptiles’
TLDR
Turtles are the highly modified survivors of a radiation of poorly‐known reptiles commonly called ‘parareptiles’, and the procolophonoid hypotheses is supported by only one synapomorphy (the slender stapes).
Pareiasaur phylogeny and the origin of turtles
TLDR
Many features thought to be restricted to turtles (and thus to have evolved simultaneously with the turtle shell) actually arose earlier, at various points along the pareiasaurian stem lineage.
A NEW PROCOLOPHONOID (REPTILIA, PARAREPTILIA) FROM THE UPPER PERMIAN OF URUGUAY
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis suggests a basal position for Pintosaurus within Procolophonoidea, either as the sister taxon of a clade that includes Coletta and procolophonids or as the siblings of Coletta itself.
Taxonomic status of the reptile genus Procolophon from the Gondwanan Triassic
TLDR
It is found that P. pricei and P. brasiliensis, two species described from Brazil, fit within the pattern of ontogenetic variation of the type species P. trigoniceps, and they are here considered junior synonyms.
Procolophonidae (Reptilia: Parareptilia) from the Upper Triassic Wolfville Formation of Nova Scotia, Canada
ABSTRACT Late Triassic strata of the Wolfville Formation in Nova Scotia, Canada, have yielded numerous cranio-dental remains referable to three new taxa of Procolophonidae: Acadiella psalidodon,
The postcranial skeleton, phylogenetic position, and probable lifestyle of the Early Triassic reptile Procolophon trigoniceps
TLDR
A morphological study of the postcranial skeleton of Procolophon trigoniceps from the Lower Triassic of South Africa and Antarctica and a phylogenetically based assessment of Owenettids reveals a number of apparent "key innovations" within procolophonids that are suggestive of a burrowing lifestyle forprocolophon.

A new trirachodontid cynodont from the lower levels of the Burgersdorp Formation (Lower Triassic) of the Beaufort Group, South Africa and the cladistic relationships of Gondwanan gomphodonts
TLDR
A new trirachodontid cynodont is described from the base of the Burgersdorp Formation (Subzone A fauna of the Cynognathus Assemblage Zone), of the South African Karoo Basin and is characterized by circular to ovoid in outline upper postcanines and the absence of a maxillary platform lateral to the postcanine series.
