Sorry for the lack of a regular post today.
On Saturday you’ll see a reconstruction of Diandongosuchus, the new basal phytosaur. We’ll make graphic comparisons to Qianosuchus, poposaurs, phytosaurs, proterochampsids and champsosaurs. So you’ll see why the large reptile tree nests Diandongosuchus with the phytosaurs, not the poposaurs.
Thank you for your patience. It will be rewarded.
In the meantime, there’s a doggone good restoration of Diandongosuchus here.
