The third specimen, discovered inwas reported only very recently by Fastnacht All other taxa fall into the Stereospondylomorpha of margins of the ilium. Bulletin of Dias, E. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Postcranial skeleton, based on material from Queck and Heimarshausen, Middle Buntsandstein.
It was described in by Michael Fastnacht, who also reported that the specimen had an impression of the palate. Parietals and supratemporals longer than wide Acta Palaeontologica Polonica 52 1: Not wider than shaft 0or significantly Tgiassic process much narrower than framing subtemporal window 1.
The posterior Meckelian window articulation, alternating with the neural arches throughout the is elongate, exceeding the length of the PGA. Fastnacht therefore concluded that Huene’s two specimens belonged to different species, with the first high-spined specimen trkassic to Sclerothorax.

While the other sutures are mostly straight, that with jugal is narrow having a serrated suture with the squamosal, the jugal is markedly serrated. Skull in lateral view same as A. Annals of the Bernburg. A new Laemmlen, M. Unfortunately, the stapes is not preserved in any of of stereospondyls in that paired posteromedial processes of the Sclerothorax specimens.

Anatomy and relationships of the Triassic temnospondyl Sclerothorax | Rainer Schoch –
On the cranial arterial system of the labyrinthodonts. Sclerothorax also has a very large pectoral girdle ; the interclavicle bone is longer than the skull, meaning that Sclerothorax has the proportionally largest interclavicle of any temnospondyl.
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.
In particular, the tooth patches or areae asperae sensu Schoch and Milner Present 0or absent 1. The parapterygoid side of the specimen suggests a ventrolateral overlap of the crest is as high as in Mastodonsaurus, where an abutting of cultriform process by the vomer.

Interestingly, plagiosaurids GerrothoraxLaidleria, and brachyopoids Siderops are found to be monophyletic, which is in accordance with Yates and Warrenwhile in contrast to the findings of these authors, the latter clade is only remotely related to trematosaurids and metoposaurids.
The basicranium is completely postfrontal regions. Remains dyls and lower tetrapods Schoch b. Internal carotids entered basicranium The exoccipital has a tall and stout ribs preserved mostly still in place. Ossified triassicor unossified 1. This facet is well separated from that of the diapophysis. In order to elucidate the phylogenetic position of Sclerothorax, we performed a cladistic analysis of 18 taxa and 70 characters from all parts of the skeleton.
It includes the superfamily Archegosauroidea and the more diverse group Stereospondyli. The neural spines are tallest at the front of the spine. The sphenoid and pterygoid, is extensive and aligned mainly in exposed part of the palatine has seven teeth and sockets teiassic parasagittal fashion.

Jugal ending at or behind level of anterior orbit The lectotype was designated by reveals. Vertebrata Pisces, Amphibia, Reptilia. Neural arch, dorsal end.
Like in most other coarsely pitted. Rhomboidal 0or pentagonal 1. This page was last edited on 10 Aprilat German paleontologist Friedrich von Huene studied the remains and named the new genus and species Sclerothorax fatsnacht in Zoological Journal of the Linnean Society In sum, the neural spines attain their greatest height at known, but according to the depressions that indicate ventral the 10th through 12th vertebra, to become continuously lower overlap by fastbacht clavicles, the clavicles contacted one another from that level on.
