There's a new Late Jurassic rhynchocephalian in town: Sphenofontis velserae, an exquisitely preserved sphenodontine from the Solnhofen Archipelago. Just out on @thePeerJ!

This amazing fossil, discovered by me and my mom, Lisa Marshall, at the Mother’s Day Quarry in Montana, exhibits several new scale shapes and orientations never before seen in Diplodocus. 2/8
