Youngest African dicynodont

Recommended Posts

A new paper is available online:

 

Christian F. Kammerer (2018). The first skeletal evidence of a dicynodont from the lower Elliot Formation of South Africa. Palaeontologia africana. 52: 102–128.

 

Pentasaurus is the youngest dicynodont from Africa, and it helps explain footprints found in South Africa in the 1950s that were considered to be made by dicynodonts. Literally, the land of Nelson Mandela may be known for treasure troves of mammal-like reptile fossils, but Pentasaurus is different in that it is the first Late Triassic dicynodont record from South Africa.
