They might be Amniota(= Reptilia)after all.
Add enough taxa into the matrix and that's how they pop out. Close to
Procolophonids, Pareiasaurs, Lanthanosuchids, Solendonsaurus, etc. etc. I
wish the truth were more like the textbooks and experts say. But when you
test it, it's not.
*Solenodonsaurus* is supposed to be close by, but the procolophonoids &
friends have not been suspected to be close since the 1950s, and those
hypotheses were, you know, cladistics with one character.
Do the test yourself.
I will, as part of my thesis. See you again in 2 or 3 years...
Any characters or character coding will do.
