Meng et al. 2017 bring us
a new gliding mammaliaform (pre-mammal) from the Jurassic (160 mya) of China, Maiopatagium furculiferum (BMNH 2940, Figs. 1,2).
it does not look like any pre-mammals tested here.
Meng et al nest Maiopatagium
between Sinoconodon and Haldanodon, taxa more primitive than mammals. By contrast the large reptile tree (LRT, 1044 taxa) nests Maiopatagium between the interatheres, Interatherium + Paedotherium and the former enigma taxa Groeberia + Vintana, all marsupials, not Haramyidae, contra Meng et al. 2017, who do not appear to have tested against all ;possible candidate taxa.
There is another newly described and similar taxon,
Vilevolodon that I need to look at before proceeding further. I’ll have more to say about both taxa later.
