Re: [dinosaur] Parasuminia, new anomodont from Upper Permian of Russia

Incidentally, the Late Permian anomodont _Suminia_ has a big claim to fame: It's been interpreted as arboreal, and therefore the earliest known arboreal vertebrate (Fröbisch and Reisz, 2009 doi:10.1098/rspb.2009.0911).  As well as its very long limbs, _Suminia_ has been described as having an opposable thumb, and possibly even a prehensile tail.

A recent paper not yet mentioned:

A. A. Kurkin (2017)
A new Galeopid (Anomodontia, Galeopidae) from the Permian of Eastern Europe.
Paleontological Journal 51(3): 308–312
DOI: 10.1134/S0031030117030042

A new anomodont genus and species, Parasuminia ivakhnenkoi sp. nov. (Galeopidae), from the Sundyr-1 locality (Upper Severodvinian Substage, Upper Permian) is described. Based on morphological analysis of tooth wear, the type of work of the jaw apparatus similar to that of Suminia Ivachnenko, 1994 is revealed.
