The structure of the carpus is comparatively well-known in the temnospondyl ancestors of the Anura, but its changes during the transition to their anuran descendents are unknown due to the abs...

Lacustrine deposits of Juro-Cretaceous age in northeastern China have yielded some of the best-preserved fossils of early crown salamanders. One of those taxa, Chunerpeton tianyiense, has been considered as a crown or stem member of the family Cryptobranchidae, significant for implying a long evolutionary history for cryptobranchids and for calibra...

In this paper, R. weichangensis is redescribed based on...
