Article: The first dicynodont from the Late Permian of Malagasy
Until now, no therapsid was known with any certainty from Malagasy. The present specimen, discovered in 1948, but never described, is the first record of a complete dicynodont skull from this country. A description of the skull is given and it is referred to a new species of the genus Oudenodon. The rarity of dicynodonts in Malagasy may be because of environmental differences from the adjoining landmass of Africa.
