Temnospondyl help

Recommended Posts

Wayan Man

Here's a hard one: This is a very nice temnospondyl skeleton (you can see the sclerotic rings!). It measures about 11cm long from snout to what is preserved of the tail. My question is: Can anyone tell me the genus/species and provenance of the fossil? I was told by the previous owner that it was possibly Platyrhinops from the Lower Triassic of Germany, but I have no idea. It looks like maybe a very well preserved Permian age Discosauriscus from the Czech Republic or some sort of temnospondyly from the Pfalz of Germany. I am happy to share more photos. Thanks for the help :-)

I think this is Micromelerpeton or something similar. Early Permian for certain, Germany would seem reasonable but I can't say with confidence. It's not Triassic and it's not Discosauriscus.
