Sorry--I sent the wrong Sharov reference. What you want is--

Sharov, A. G., 1970. "Svoyeobraznaya reptiliya iz nizhnevo triasa Fergany [An
unusual reptile from the Lower Triassic of Fergana]," Paleontologicheskiy
Zhurnal 1970(1): 127130 [in Russian; English translation in Paleontological
Journal 1970(1): 112116].
