  INTRODUCTION. The nasal cavity of mammals is the anteriormost part of the respiratory system and therefore plays an important role in thermoregulation and olfaction (Negus, ; Hillenius, , ; Kemp, ).A major innovation in the cranial evolution of mammals is a nasal cavity that is completely separated from the mouth cavity by the secondary hard and soft palate and by the lamina. many times independently.

AXIALSKELETON 1. Description (a) General comments. Procynosuchus (Greek: "Before dog crocodile") is an extinct genus of cynodonts from the Late Permian. It is considered to be one of the earliest and most basal cynodonts. It was 60 cm (2 ft) long and seems to have been adapted to a semi-aquatic lifestyle.

Remains of Procynosuchus have been found in Germany, Zambia and South Africa. Paleobiology. The oldest and the most basal cynodont yet found is Charassognathus (Late Permian).

Other basal cynodonts were the procynosuchids, a family that includes Procynosuchus and Dvinia. Cynodonts were among the few groups of synapsids that survived the Permian–Triassic extinction event and had a slow recovery after the extinction. An almost complete, acetic acid prepared skeleton of Procynosuchus delaharpeae Broom, an Upper Permian cynodont, is described.

The axial skeleton is primitive in lacking the expanded costal plates, and accessory zygapophyses of later cynodonts. This new cynodont is distinguished by the presence of a small notch in the base of the coronoid process, located in a similar position to the base of the masseteric fossa in Dvinia and Procynosuchus.

The angle of the dentary is prominent, appearing more developed than in Procynosuchus and Dvinia, but less so than in Nanictosaurus.

The earliest cynodont records are known from the latest Late Permian and include the genera Procynosuchus from South Africa, Tanzania, Germany and Russia (Kemp, ;Sues & Boy, ;Rubidge, The most primitive cynodonts, such as the Permian Procynosuchus, had sprawled limbs and must have walked in a primitive way.

The progressively more advanced cynodonts evolved a series of anatomical adaptations related to a more upright limb posture and “efficient” locomotion (i.e., more “mammal-like”), as a slender humerus and femur.

This egg-laying extinct proto-mammal was a cynodont, a group that was ancestral to mammals. Procynosuchus is usually depicted as living like an otter because of several features that suggest Procynosuchus was much better suited for swimming than exclusively terrestrial movement.‭ ‬One area in particular is the tail which is considerably longer than in other cynodonts from the time.‭ ‬The haemal arches which are on the.

A NEW TYPE OF PRIMITIVE CYNODONT By A. BRINK ABSTRACf A very interesting ancestral type of Cynodont is described in reasonable detail from serial sections, graphical figures, and a complete wax model, four times Procynosuchus or Galecranium, and it was decided to proceed with the sectioning.

Pt laoontologla9. Dvinia was the most basal cynodont in hypotheses by Hopson & Kitching () and Sidor & Smith (), whereas it was recovered as the sister taxon of Procynosuchus by Abdala (), Botha et al., Ruta et al. and Van den Brandt & Abdala ().

Cynodont, (suborder or infraorder Cynodontia), mammal-like reptiles of the order Therapsida (see therapsid) that existed from the Late Permian to the Early Jurassic Epoch ( million to million years ago).Cynodont fossils have been found in China, South Africa, South America, and North America.

(Examples in North America were not reported untilfrom sites in Virginia, U.S.). Paleobiology. As one of the earliest cynodonts, Procynosuchus has many primitive features, but it also has features that distinguish it from all other early therapsids.

Some of these features have been interpreted as adaptations for a semi-aquatic lifestyle. For example, the wide zygapophyses of the vertebrae allow for a high degree of lateral flexibility, and Procynosuchus may have used.Procynosuchus was close to the ancestral condition of later cynodonts.

It had all the primitive features of Dvinia except that the vomers are fused. There was still no fusion of secondary palate and the palate didn’t continue behind the region of the teeth.

There were 4 lower incisors.The primitive cynodont Procynosuchus: functional anatomy of the skull and relationships.
