Re: [dinosaur] Ascendonanus + Brontopodus plagenensis tracks + Arboroharamiya + more

An update on Ascendonanus...

I asked and the Ascendonanus paper is "in press" and should appear in the journal PalZ in December--in time for gift-giving season!

In the meantime, here's a free pdf link to an older (2012) paper on Chemnitz in Palaios:

Ronny RÃÃler, Thorid Zierold, Zhuo Feng, Ralph Kretzschmar, Mathias Merbitz, Volker Annacker, and JÃrg W. Schneider (2012)
A snapshot of an Early Permian ecosystem preserved by explosive volcanism: new results from the Chemnitz petrified forest, Germany.

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)

(click illustration for full view of life reconstruction of Ascendonanus)

[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
