Journal of
Temnospondyl
PALAEONTOLOGY

Lydekkerina huxleyi (Lydekker) Broom 1915, is a small,
short-faced, basal stereospondyl from the Lower Triassic Lystrosaurus Assemblage Zone of South Africa. It is by far the most commonly preserved temnospondyl within this assemblage and is known from over 200 skulls and a considerable amount of postcranial material. The holotype, BMNH R507, and two other specimens from the same locality, (R506 and R508), were originally described as Bothriceps huxleyi by Lydekker in 1889, and again in 1890, along with two additional specimens, R504 and R505. In 1915, however, Broom removed this species from the genus Bothriceps (a brachyopid temnospondyl), and established for it the new genus Lydekkerina.
