  • Gondwanatheria is a group of extinct mammals known from the Cretaceous and Paleogene of Gondwana. Resolution of the phylogenetic affinities of gondwanatherians has proven problematical, with the group currently considered Mammalia incertae sedis. We briefly review the morphology of known gondwanatherians, and argue that isolated upper premolars and a partial dentary preserving a blade-like p4 originally referred to the ferugliotheriid gondwanatherian Ferugliotherium windhauseni but subsequently… CONTINUE READING
