Abstract. An accumulation of skeletons of the pre-dinosaur _Silesaurus opolensis_ gen. et sp. n. is described from the Keuper (Late Triassic) claystone of Krasiejów in southern Poland.


The genus is probably named after Silesia, a region in southern Poland. The species name likely pertains to Opole, a county and city in Poland, named after the medieval Opolans tribe of Slavs.
