A new locality of early Late Triassic age in the Richmond basin of east-central Virginia has yielded abundant remains of a diversified assemblage of small to medium-sized tetrapods that closely resembles Southern Hemisphere (Gondwanan) assemblages in the predominance of certain synapsids. Associated palynomorphs indicate an early middle Carnian age for the fossiliferous strata. The discovery suggests that previously recognized differences between tetrapod assemblages of early Late Triassic age… 
Fossil lizards from the Jurassic Kota Formation of India
TLDR
A lizard assemblage from the Upper Member of the Kota Formation of peninsular India, usually considered to be of Early–Middle Jurassic age, is reported, providing evidence that iguanians had begun to diversify before the break-up of Pangea.
A rich cynodont fauna of Santa Cruz do Sul, Santa Maria Formation (Middle-Late Triassic), southern Brazil
A new Triassic vertebrate fauna, known from over 100 specimens, is dominated by non-mammalian cynodonts.Three specimens represent sectorial- toothed chiniquodontids, while thirty-nine are
A Triassic Lagerstätte from eastern North America
TLDR
The oldest definitive records for three orders of insect and numerous families and super families are reported, and the flora is shown to contain an unusual diversity of forms, some of which have only been previously reported either from Europe or the Southern Hemisphere.

ABSTRACT We describe a new taxon of lepidosauromorph reptile, Vinitasaura lizae, based on a nearly complete dentary and the posterior portion of a second dentary from the Upper Triassic (upper

The Mesozoic and Palaeocene record of lissamphibians (i.e. anurans, caudates, gymnophionans and albanerpetontids) in North America is reviewed on the basis of over 400 published and unpublished
Rhynchocephalians (Diapsida: Lepidosauria) from the Jurassic Kota Formation of India
TLDR
New sphenodontian material from the Jurassic Kota Formation of peninsular India indicates the presence of a primitive pleurodont lepidosauromorph similar to the basal rhynchocephaliansGephyrosaurus and Diphydontosaurus from Britain.
NEW TRAVERSODONTIDS (SYNAPSIDA: EUCYNODONTIA) FROM THE TRIASSIC OF MADAGASCAR
TLDR
This paper presents a cladistic analysis of the deposits of Carboniferous strata of Madagascar dating back to the Bronze Age through to the Middle Ages, which shows clear signs of wear and tear over thousands of years.

Faunal replacement in the Triassic of South America
TLDR
Improvements in the locomotor apparatus are discernible in seven groups of archosaurs and indicate that a great adaptive radiation took place before the oldest recorded fauna dominated by archosaurs appeared.

TLDR
Study of the Maleri metoposaur and its comparison with the other adequately known genera, Metoposaurus from the Keuper of Europe and ‘Eupelor' from the Upper Triassic of North America, has demonstrated the weak foundation on which metopOSaur genera are based.
The Head Skeleton of the Rhaetian Sphenodontid Diphydontosaurus Avonis Gen. Et Sp. Nov. and the Modernizing of a Living Fossil
TLDR
A study of 49 synapomorphs in the Diapsida suggests that the lack of a quadrate-quadratojugal conch and the complete lower temporal bar are secondarily derived in the `living fossil' Sphenodon punctatus, and the tuatara is therefore much less archaic than hitherto proposed.

TLDR
The postcanine morphology of A. mendozensis and the inferred masticatory mechanisms suggest opportunistic dietary habits for this species, probably omnivorous or omnivore-insectivorous habits, but not strictly herbivore.
