KurzfassungBis jetzt sind die größten Individuen vonDiscosauriscus (wie auchUtegenia undAriekanerpeton, unterpermische Mitglieder der Familie Discosauriscidae) für adulte Individuen gehalten worden. Die größten Exemplare vonDiscosauriscus, die noch äußere Kiemen besitzen, haben eine Schädellänge von etwa 22-25 mm. Es ist vorausgesetzt worden, daß die Metamorphose bei Discosau-risciden ungefähr bei dieser Größe anfing und daß die Individuen mit einer Schädellänge von etwa 50-54 mm schon adult… 
THE SKELETAL ANATOMY AND RELATIONSHIPS OF A NEW DISCOSAURISCID SEYMOURIAMORPH FROM THE LOWER PERMIAN OF MORAVIA (CZECH REPUBLIC)
TLDR
Spinarerpeton is placed as the sister taxon to the Lower Permian Makowskia within the Discosauriscidae and its cranial reconstruction and phylogenetic position within seymouriamorphs is presented.
The Devonian tetrapod Acanthostega gunnari Jarvik: postcranial anatomy, basal tetrapod interrelationships and patterns of skeletal evolution
TLDR
Comparison between axial skeletons of primitive tetrapods suggests that plesiomorphic fish-like morphologies were re-patterned in a cranio-caudal direction with the emergence of tetrapod vertebral regionalisation.

TLDR
A revised cladistic analysis of the best known seymouriamorph species retrieves Ariekanerpeton either as sister group to both species of Discosauriscus, or to D. austriacus only.

  • J. Klembara, M. Ruta
  • Biology
    Transactions of the Royal Society of Edinburgh: Earth Sciences
  • 2005
TLDR
The cranial anatomy of Ariekanerpeton sigalovi (Seymouriamorpha: Discosauriscidae; Lower Permian, Tadzhikistan) is described, highlighting new diagnostic features which permit a new skull reconstruction and revised diagnosis.
Skeletal Morphogenesis of Microbrachis and Hyloplesion (Tetrapoda: Lepospondyli), and Implications for the Developmental Patterns of Extinct, Early Tetrapods
TLDR
The phylogenetic position and developmental patterns of M. pelikani and H. longicostatum are congruent with the hypothesis that early tetrapods lacked metamorphosis ancestrally and that stem-amniotes exhibited derived features of development, such as rapid and complete ossification of the skeleton, potentially prior to the evolution of the amniotic egg.
COMPARISON OF CRANIAL ANATOMY AND PROPORTIONS OF SIMILARLY SIZED SEYMOURIA SANJUANENSIS AND DISCOSAURISCUS AUSTRIACUS
TLDR
Despite representing similar, juvenile stages of development, the S. sanjuanensis and D. austriacus specimens can be distinguished clearly from one another on structural and proportional cranial features, thus dispelling suggestions that Seymouria may represent the adult stage of development of Discosauriscus, which is known only by larval and juvenile stagesof development.
A new discosauriscid seymouriamorph tetrapod from the Lower Permian of Moravia, Czech Republic
A new genus and species, Makowskia laticephala gen. et sp. nov., of seymouriamorph tetrapod from the Lower Permian deposits of the Boskovice Furrow in Moravia (Czech Republic) is described in detail,
The cranial anatomy of Discosauricsus Kuhn, a seymouriamorph tetrapod from the Lower Permian of the Boskovice Furrow (Czech Republic)
TLDR
Comparison of the cranial structures of Discosauriscus with those of Seymouria baylorensis, Seymourouria sanjuanensis, and Seymourias shows that Discosuriscus is not a reptile (an amniote animal), and Ariekanerpeton, Utegenia, Urumquia, kotlassiids, leptorophids and Enosuchus require revision.
LARVAL ONTOGENY OF MICROMELERPETON CREDNERI (TEMNOSPONDYLI, DISSOROPHOIDEA)
TLDR
Transformation into the adult stage took place gradually and in a longer period of time during ontogeny than in extant amphibians.
The seymouriamorph tetrapod Utegenia shpinari from the ?Upper Carboniferous–Lower Permian of Kazakhstan. Part I: Cranial anatomy and ontogeny

    Transactions of the Royal Society of Edinburgh: Earth Sciences
  • 2003
TLDR
Results of a regression analysis through some simple skull measurements indicates that, although the preorbital and interorbital regions elongate isometrically relative to the posterior skull table, they do not show a particularly strong linear correlation with the widening of the skull during ontogeny.

The sutural pattern of skull‐roof bones in Lower Permian Discosauriscus austriacus from Moravia
TLDR
The configuration of the suture between both parietals in osteolepiforms, Discosauriscus, and various early amphibians and reptiles indicates that the bones enclosing the pineal foramen in osteolypifonns are frontals.
The Carboniferous Amphibian Proterogyrinus scheelei Romer, and the Early Evolution of Tetrapods
TLDR
Proterogyrinus scheelei Romer, from the Upper Mississippian of Greer, West Virginia, is one of the earliest known members of the amphibian infraorder Embolomeri, and has no undisputed synapomorphies with reptiles either, making it impossible to support close relationship between the two groups.

TLDR
Pending the discovery of distinct morphological differences, the Moravian discosauriscids can be considered as belonging to only one taxon: DiscosaurISCus austriacus (Makowsky, 1876).
