Origin of dimetrodon
Examples from the Web for dimetrodon
Evidence for the presence and extent of a pseudotemporal muscle in both Captorhinus and Dimetrodon is lacking.
A comparison of the general pattern of the adductor musculature of Captorhinus and Dimetrodon reveals an expected similarity.
Watson believed that the jaw of Dimetrodon was capable of anteroposterior sliding.
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.
