Abstract

The Camp Quarry (lower Permian Cutler Formation of New Mexico) has yielded few remains of cotylosaurian reptiles. Besides a diadectomorph a species of large captorhinomorph is recognized from incomplete remains. The femur of this animal is reminiscent of Limnoscelis paludis in gross form, but it agrees better with Limnosceloides dunkardensis in several details. The species is assigned very tentatively to Limnosceloides, as L. brachycoles. Referred vertebrae are distinctive in the presence of a bridge of bone connecting prezygapophyses above the neural canal. This condition is shared with some limnoscelids recently reported from Colorado and Utah.
