Historical Examples of dimetrodon
The adductor musculature of the lower jaw in Dimetrodon was divided into lateral and medial groups (Figs. 5, 6).
A similar origin suggests itself for the corresponding muscle, the second major adductor mass, in Dimetrodon.
The dentition of Dimetrodon further substantiates the movement of the jaw in a simple up and down direction.
Watson believed that the jaw of Dimetrodon was capable of anteroposterior sliding.
Evidence for the presence and extent of a pseudotemporal muscle in both Captorhinus and Dimetrodon is lacking.
