The large reptile tree is now up to 316 taxa, still growing and still virtually fully resolved (an issue developed around Colobomycter and Paraplacodus and probably for good reason!!). I don’t update the tree graphic with every new taxon because it’s a lot of work! But last night was a good time to update it.
Some of the recent additions include:
16. Gualosuchus – nests with Chanaresuchus.
Some of these are no brainers. Others were missed by their original authors by not including appropriate sisters and close kin candidates. Others were considered such ‘junk’ that they were unworthy of cladistic analysis.
If there’s any taxon out there that needs a nesting, let me know.
As always, I encourage readers to see specimens, make observations and come to your own conclusions. Test. Test. And test again.
Evidence and support in the form of nexus, pdf and jpeg files will be sent to all who request additional data.
