Article: A new labyrinthodont amphibian from the Carboniferous of Scotland
Cranial remains of a labyrinthodont amphibian Doragnathus woodi gen. et sp. nov., from localities in the Visean and Namuriun of the Scottish Carboniferous, are described. The structure of ihe lower jaw resembles that of the earliest known Amphibia, but its dentition is unusual, comprising large numbers of strongly incurved, closely spaced marginal teeth together with it row of small needle-like coronoid teeth. The relationships of Doragnathus are discussed. A spceimen of Doragnathus from Pitcorthie represents the earliest recorded labyrinthodont in the British Carboniferous.
