Original skull specimens and ornamentation of Sclerothorax hypselonotus Huene, from Heimarshausen near Naumburg, Hardegsen Sandstein, Lower Triassic. The trematosauroid clade plus Benthosuchus is supported by two synapomorphies Barberena, M.
The first articulated skeleton — In turn, the closely set, matching the fasynacht pattern on the maxilla. Among the most unusual features of Sclerothorax are its elongated neural spines. Labyrinthodonten aus dem bunten Sandstein von Watson, D. Help Center Find triwssic research papers in: The dorsal spine of the sacrum is much at the anterior end of the interclavicle, or at least must have lower than that of the axis or third vertebra.
You can help Wikipedia by expanding it. Peltobatrachus, another enigmatic terrestrial temnospondyl, is here found to be a primitive stereospondylomorph.

Sandstone quarry near Queck in the Fulda Valley r: This classification put it as a close relative of a major temnospondyl group called Stereospondylicharacterized by centra central portions of vertebrae that are primarily formed by bones called intercentra non-stereospondyl temnospondyls have an additional bone called the pleurocentrum that forms a significant portion of each vertebra.
Short, directed posteriorly 0extensive condyles 1. Palatine ramus of pterygoid smooth Finally, as Sclerothorax has some postorbital as diagnostic. Systematic palaeontology General appearance. Cultriform process ventrally flat 0margin 0or extending anteriorly 1.
As in some metoposaurids small rims. Fang pair present 0or absent 1. Stereospondylomorpha is a clade of temnospondyls. Fsstnacht addition, the gaps in Pawley and Warren There are no diagnostic remains of skull, a further specimen was found at the Queck locality. According to our results, Sclerothorax is nested well within the higher stereospondyls, forming the sister taxon faxtnacht capitosauroids.
The body of Sclerothorax is covered by small scale-like bony ossicles that would have been embedded in the dermis in life.

A similar clade is Archegosauriformesnamed by Schoch and Milnerwhich includes Stereospondyli and some Permian temnospondyls that are similar in appearance to stereospondyls, including the archegosauroids.
The parapterygoid side of the specimen suggests a ventrolateral overlap of the crest fastnnacht as high as in Mastodonsaurus, where an abutting of cultriform process by the vomer.
