Abstract

A new genus and species of limnoscelid captorhinomorph, Limnostygis relictus, is described from the Middle Pennsylvanian of Florence, Nova Scotia. This genus is represented, along with at least three other reptilian genera, in the stumps of upright lycopods in the Morien group of the Sydney coal field. This is the first member of this family to be described from the Carboniferous and confirms Romer's suggestion that the Permian genus Limnoscelis is a relict of a very ancient reptilian lineage.
