Some recent items:



Ascendonanus nestleri (I can't find a published description yet), earliest known tree-climbing tetrapod, to be featured in a talk by German paleontologist (and paleoartist) Frederik Spindler at the Chemnitz Natural History Museum about the Permian fossils found at Chemnitz, preserving an ancient forest with plants and animals thanks to pyroclastic volcanism, including five specimens of Ascendonanus, nicknamed "Schnappi" (in German)

[Note that the Chemnitz city news release gives a few more details but misspells the name "Ascedonanus"--*ascendo* "ascend" is the obvious Latin source.]Â
