One of only three
This tiny, tiny skull (the scale is 1cm) is only the third of its type known from the Triassic rocks of East Devon. The other two are both different species so this is certainly a hugely important specimen to science that has as yet to be described. It belongs to the most primative type of reptile, an ‘anapsid’ which means that there are no holes or temporal fenestrae in the skull, and it is known as a Procophonolid.
