New dicynodonts from Laos


Recommended Posts

A new dicynodont-related paper is available online:


Chloe Olivier, Bernard Battail, Sylvie Bourquin, Camille Rossignol, J.-Sebastien Steyer & Nour-Eddine Jalil (2019) New dicynodonts (Therapsida, Anomodontia) from near the Permo-Triassic boundary of Laos: implications for dicynodont survivorship across the Permo-Triassic mass extinction and the paleobiogeography of Southeast Asian blocks, Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology, DOI: 10.1080/02724634.2019.1584745


Dicynodon incisivum was the first dicynodont and first pre-Mesozoic tetrapod found in Laos, but has been dismissed as a nomen dubium. The description of Counillonia and Repelinosaurus makes clear that kannemeyeriforms and Dicynodon-like forms co-existed during the interval across Permian-Triassic boundary.


By the way, is there a copy of the following paper available that I could skim through?
