Tapan Roy Chowdhury
Two new dicynodonts recently collected from the Triassic Yerrapalli formation of India are described. The first, Rechnisaurus cristarhynchus, is a stahleckeriid and the first of its kind to be reported from Asia. Rechnisaurus shows considerable similarities to Dinodontosaurus of the Middle Triassic of Brazil and Argentina. The second dicynodont, Wadiasaurus indicus is the first kannemeyeriid to be described from India and its nearest relative is thought to be Sangusaurus of the Middle Triassic of Zambia.
