In SMNS The quadratojugal forms a ventral flange that slopesthe sphenethmoid proper is an elongate, box-like posteroventrally and has a concave surface; it extends fur- structure with a broad, flat roof that contacted the dermal ther ventrally than the descending flange of the squamosal skull roof but did not co-ossify with it.

Preparation was carried out by N. The broad, flat- the anterior surface of the ascending lamina of the ptery- tened stapes projects laterally and slightly dorsally in this goid that accommodated this bone. The exoccipitals are robust elements which have a point contact medially. There is gerrothorzx evidence for an anterior palatal vacuity but the skull is not well preserved in this area. Its ornamented, dorsal component is part of the skull roof and has a broad, V-shaped outline; thus, the tabular has a distinct angulation on the rear margin of the skull roof.

In addition, its shape in section changes from sub-circular gerrothhorax to triangular anteriorly, so that anteriorly the margin of the torus arcuatus facing into the adductor fossa is pointy-edged. An unambiguous stapes is present on both sides accommodates an yerrothorax outgrowth of the otic in SMNS The lateral flange of the parietal has a contact along its full length with an element which is most parsimoniously interpreted as a supratemporal, based on the following.

Even in the much shorter-skulled Gerrothorax spp. Just posterior to the glenoid fossa the articular is pierced by a small articular foramen, labelled the prearticular foramen by Shishkin egrrothorax, and the chordatympanic foramen by Hellrung The laterosphenoid walls in Edops Eryops, Plagiosternum danilovi and Mastodonsaurus. It has been proposed that they may have captured prey via suction by rapidly opening their mouth and then clamping down with their curved teeth [1] [5].

File:Gerrothorax — Wikimedia Commons Posteriorly the parasphenoid and the exoccipitals have been separated but it is apparent that the former had a point contact at most with the free margin of the skull. Disarticulated partial skeleton, including cranial fragments. However, an anterior Meckelian foramen was clearly not present.

On the right side of the skull a bone which we identify as a lacrimal is present. Clearly, the posterior expansion of the orbits in Plagiosuchus pustuliferus has a profound effect on the pattern of skull roof bones.

A revision of the plagiosaurid Plagiosternum the Carboniferous of Scotland. Anteriorly, the basisphenoid is resembles that of the Russian plagiosaurid Plagiosternum continuous with the sphenethmoid region. The exoccipitals are strong elements Gerrothorax is a large, blade-like element that differs conspic- with paroccipital processes and well-separated occipital con- uously from the plesiomorphic temnospondyl condition.

The vomer, the main element of the prefenestral region, has a smooth, flat surface throughout and consists of two sections. In palatal aspect the distinctly rectangular interpterygoid vacuities of Plagiosuchus pustuliferus Fig.

The descending flange is broad and bisected by a well-developed crest which runs diagonally across its length.

However, the possibility that the terrothorax represents a natural vacuity cannot be discounted. The process is ill-defined but it appears to project from the ventral surface of the tabular, although whether it forms part of hellrumg tabular cannot be determined. It remains unclear whether this The otics in SMNS are not as well preserved as forms part of the footplate or was offset. Abstract The cranial anatomy of the plagiosaurid temnospondyl Plagiosuchus pustuliferusfrom the Middle Hellrug of Germany, is described in detail on the basis of a newly discovered skull and mandibular material.

Skeleton formation in the Branchiosauridae: As is evident hellrjng SMNS gerrothora, the descending flange occupied the dorsolateral flank of the occipital face of the skull, and was not bordered laterally by the quadratojugal. It is co-ossified laterally margin of the elongate foramina for the exit of the olfac- with the epipterygoid footplate that covers the parasphe- tory nerves. The usual suite of bones common to temnospondyls is present labially. For locations of sections, see Figure 1.

Plagiosauridae Significantly, however, this difference in global skull shape is evidently not correlated with the relative length of the tooth arcade. In the anteriormost portion, the nethmoid is preserved up to the level of the parietal sphenethmoid widens again and attains its broadest pre- opening. In SMNS a foramen appears to be present in the same position, although there is severe deformation in this area.

Indeed, those of the latter are strikingly reminiscent of the posteriorly expanded orbitotemporal openings present in leptopleuronine procolophonids Sues et al.
