The skull ol a new fossil reptile, Gephyrosaurus bridensis gen. et sp. Nov. is described. The description is based on a large collection of isolated, but well preserved skull bones from mammal-bearing fissure infills of Lower Jurassic age. The skull is diapsid with an incomplete lower temporal arcade and a fixed quadrate. Comparison with earlier non-archosaurian diapsid reptiles indicates that Gephyrosaurus is a member of the Eosuchia, an infraclass of the subclass Diapsida. The taxonomy of the… 
A new lizard‐like reptile (Diapsida: Lepidosauromorpha) from the Middle Jurassic of England
TLDR
The skull of a new diapsid reptile, Marmorelta oxoniensis, which was common within the fauna is described and it is concluded that Marmoretta was a lepidosauromorph, most probably the sister taxon of Lepidosauria.
A NEW SPECIES OF THE SPHENODONTIAN REPTILE CLEVOSAURUS FROM THE LOWER JURASSIC OF SOUTH WALES
Abstract:  Small reptiles from the Early Jurassic Pant 4 fissure fill in Glamorgan, South Wales (St. Bride's Island, Pant Quarry), were formerly provisionally attributed to three species of
A SMALL LEPIDOSAUROMORPH REPTILE FROM THE EARLY TRIASSIC OF POLAND
The Early Triassic karst deposits of Czatkowice quarry near Kraków, southern Poland, has yielded a diversity of fish, amphibians and small reptiles. Two of these reptiles are lepido− sauromorphs, a
A bird-like skull in a Triassic diapsid reptile increases heterogeneity of the morphological and phylogenetic radiation of Diapsida
TLDR
The phylogenetic position of drepanosaurids indicates the presence of archaic Permian clades among Triassic small reptile assemblages and that morphological convergence produced a remarkably bird-like skull nearly 100 Myr before one is known to have emerged in Theropoda.
New sphenodontians (Diapsida: Lepidosauria: Rhynchocephalia) from the Early Cretaceous of North Africa
TLDR
Comparison with known Jurassic and Early Cretaceous genera suggests the Moroccan form of sphenodontian is sufficiently distinctive in its tooth and jaw morphology to warrant the erection of a new genus and species, Tingitana anoualae.
A new species of Clevosaurus (Lepidosauria: Rhynchocephalia) from the Upper Triassic of Rio Grande do sul, Brazil
Abstract:  Well‐preserved cranial remains of a small sphenodontian lepidosaur from the Upper Triassic Caturrita Formation of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, are the first record of the genus Clevosaurus
A New Lepidosauromorph Reptile from the Middle Triassic (Ladinian) of Germany and Its Phylogenetic Relationships
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis recovered Fraxinisaura rozynekae among Lepidosauromorpha and as the sister taxon of the Middle to Late Jurassic Marmoretta oxoniensis, but currently existing character-taxon matrices do not allow confident resolution of the interrelationships of these and other early Mesozoic lepidosauromorph reptiles.
A GREEN RIVER (EOCENE) POLYCHROTID (SQUAMATA: REPTILIA) AND A RE-EXAMINATION OF IGUANIAN SYSTEMATICS
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis including this taxon and other fossil and extant iguanians offers some support for the monophyly of Polychrotidae sensu lato, Tropiduridae sensi lati, and non-acrodont iguanian (Pleurodonta).
A tiny Triassic saurian from Connecticut and the early evolution of the diapsid feeding apparatus
TLDR
A new species of saurian reptile, Colobops noviportensis, based on a 2.5 cm-long skull with proportionally large attachments for jaw muscles, expands the known diversity of early diapsids.

TLDR
The Millerosauria provide a starting point for the development of all sauropsids except perhaps the Chelonia, and the real resemblance of the millerosaurs to primitive captorhinids and pelycosaurs is evidence of a common ultimate derivation from anthracosaurs.

The lower jaw of Morganucodon
TLDR
The genus Morganucodon is found in Yunnan, China, in normal (non-karstic) sedimentary deposits of probable Rhaetian age; and in Wales in karstic deposits in the Carboniferous Limestone, which cannot be younger than Sinnemurian or older than Rhaetic.
