New Captorhinid Reptile Found in China

A new captorhinid reptile, Gansurhinus qingtoushanensis, gen. et sp. nov., was found from Xidagou Formation (Middle Permian) at Qingtoushan (Dashankou) locality near Yumen, Gansu Province, and from Naobaogou Formation (Late Permian) in Baotou, Nei Mongol, China, as reported in the recent issue of Naturwissenschaften 98 (435–441), 2011. The find provides new evidence for further studies on the evoluting and paleogeography of captorhinid reptiles.
