Synapsida é um grupo de cordados que inclui os mamíferos e todos os animais mais próximos deles do que de outros amniotas.  São caracterizados por possuírem uma só fenestra temporal pós-orbital em posição inferior, localizada entre os ossos escamosal, pós-orbital, jugal e quadrado-jugal. Os ossos apendiculares dos sinápsideos, durante a evolução do grupo, experimentaram Filo: Chordata. Synapsid skulls contain a hole behind the eyes called the temporal fenestrae, which made their skulls lighter and less energy-intensive to grow and may have provided new attachment sites for jaw muscles. They also have differentiated teeth (canines, molars, and incisors) and evolved a different palate shape from their reptilian ancestors. Definition of synapsid.: any of a subclass (Synapsida) of terrestrial vertebrates (such as the pelycosaurs and therapsids having a single pair of lateral temporal skull openings. Note: Traditional classifications typically consider synapsids to be mammal-like, extinct reptiles ancestral to mammals.

Introduction to the Synapsida. Much more than mammals. The mammals of today are but one branch of the Synapsida, a great vertebrate group with a million year history. Pre-mammalian synapsids -- including the famous "finback" Dimetrodon, shown at the top left -- dominated the land vertebrate fauna of the Permian and early Triassic before losing ground to the diversifying dinosaurs and other.
Synapsida definition is - a subclass of Reptilia comprising extinct reptiles of the Pennsylvanian, Permian, and Triassic, having a single pair of lateral temporal openings in the skull, and usually held to be ancestral to the true mammals.
synapsid (sĭ-năp′sĭd) n. Any of a group of amniote vertebrates that first emerged in the late Permian Period, characterized by a single opening in the temporal region on each side of the skull and including the mammals along with various extinct groups more closely related to mammals than to other amniotes.

Synapsida: Systematics. Synapsid classification has undergone tremendous change in recent years; most of the traditional groupings have been discovered to be paraphyletic. To represent this, we have used multiple lines drawn to paraphyletic groups in the cladogram above.

In the past, non-mammalian synapsids were often referred to as “mammal-like reptiles,” but this term is inaccurate. Synapsids and evolution of mammals • Synapsida includes all amniotes with synapsid skull. • Synapsid clade includes: – Nonmammalian synapsids, or “Mammal-like reptiles” (extinct) • This is not a very scientific term, it actually refers to a paraphyletic Size: 1MB.
Pertaining to the class Synapsida, of animals which have an opening low in the skull roof behind each eye, leaving a bony arch beneath each. Matt Ridley, Genome, Harper Perennialp. We are synapsid tetrapods, a group of reptiles that almost went extinct million years ago in competition with the better-designed dinosaurs.Any.
Findings. The fossils of the order Synapsida can be split into two distinct groups, the pelycosaurs and the therapsids. The best pelycosaur fossils found, so far, come from the North American lower Permian “Red Bed” sediments, mainly in New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas and Nova Scotia, as well.
The therapsids, however, came to inhabit every environment on every continent. Synapsida (in the taxonomy of reptiles), a subclass fossil form, having a single inferior temporal FOSSA on each side of the skull.
These are the Theromorphs from which mammals probably evolved. The term is sometimes extended to include the mammals. Nocturnality is widespread among extant mammals and often considered the ancestral behavioural pattern for all mammals.
However, mammals are nested within a larger clade, Synapsida, and non-mammalian synapsids comprise a rich phylogenetic, morphological and ecological by: Synapsids (Class Synapsida) are traditionally divided into the pelycosaurs (a paraphyletic group unless it includes all synapsids) and the Therapsids (a parahyletic group unless it includes higher synapsids and mammals) (Prothero, pp ).

Despite these facts and the outstanding fossil record of the group, early synapsids remain obscure.The first Record of Plicidentine in Varanopseidae (Synapsida, Pelycosauria) Michael Laaß, Burkhard Schillinger Abstract. Infolded dentine (plicidentine) around the pulp cavities of the tooth roots is an ancient dental feature of fishes (sarcopterygians and actinopterygians) and several basal tetrapod groups.
But, plicidentine is completely unknown in synapsids except some sphenacodontid Author: M. Laaß, B. Schillinger.The pattern of fenestration is defined by the typical configuration of bones that border the fenestra.
The typical configurations of bones for the skull types are illustrated in Figure In the synapsid condition the dorsal border of the fenestra is formed mainly by the squamosal and postorbital bones, although the parietal may occasionally participate, whereas the ventral border is formed.
