Re: Non-dinosaurian surprise

A phylogeny groups it between Eutriconodontans and multituberculates, closer to the multis. Assuming that's right, its lineage goes back a long ways.

That's interesting, since the EK ?Multituberculate tooth found near Inverloch in Australia has been studied further, and although it shows some resemblance to multies it lacks certain diagnostic multi' features (and certainly doesn't fit into any other Cretaceous mammal groups).

I *really* have to find the time to summarise this years Flat Rocks report. :) The 2004 & 2005 field reports are online - both mention the tooth in question (the 2004 report has a photo on the cover).
