ANNOUNCING NMMNH&S BULLETIN 46

The taxonomy and paleobiology of the Late Triassic (Carnian-Norian:
Adamanian-Apachean) drepanosaurs (Diapsida: Archosauromorpha:
Drepanosauromorpha)

By Silvio Renesto, Justin A. Spielmann,
Spencer G. Lucas and Giorgio Tarditi Spagnoli
        
        This 81-page monograph by Renesto et al. summarizes the history
of study of drepanosaurs, photographically illustrates and describes all
significant specimens, provides a new taxonomy and discusses the
paleobiology of the group. Two new species, Megalancosaurus endennae and Vallesaurus zorzinensis, are described and named. In addition, three new
clade names are defined and established: Drepanosauromorpha =
Hypuronector + Elyurosauria; Elyurosauria = Vallesaurus +
Drepanosauridae; Megalancosaurinae = Drepanosaurus + Megalancosaurus.
This monograph provides the most comprehensive coverage of this
enigmatic group and serves as a compendium of the past two decades of
drepanosaur research.

        If you are interested in ordering Bulletin 46 it is $15 and you
