Abstract Cladistic analysis of extant and fossil squamates (95 characters, 26 taxa) finds the fossil squamate,Coniasaurus Owen, 1850, to be the sister-group of the Mosasauroidea (mosasaurs and aigialosaurs). This clade is supported in all 18 shortest cladograms (464 steps; CI 0.677; HI 0.772) by nine characters of the dermatocranium, maxilla, and mandible. A Strict Consensus Tree of the 18 shortest trees collapses to a basal polytomy for most major squamate clades including the clade… Expand
