Diplocynodon ungeri

Reptilia -

Taxonomy
Enneodon ungeri was named by Prangner (1845). Its type specimen is UMJ 1774, a partial skull (Rostrum), and it is a 3D body fossil. Its type locality is Schönegg, Wies coal seam, which is in a Miocene mire/swamp coal in the Eibiswald Formation of Austria.

It was recombined as Crocodylus ungeri by Fitzinger (1846); it was recombined as Diplocynodon ungeri by Martin and Gross (2011), Delfino and Smith (2012) and Rio et al. (2019).

Synonyms
  • Crocodilus styriacus was named by Hofmann (1887) [The taxon is referred to as "Crocodilus (Alligator) styriacus nov. spec." in the reference. "Alligator" here does not seem to refer to a subgenus but rather is due to uncertain generic assignment by the author: "Die Reste des Crocodilus (Alligator) styriacus n. sp. lassen auf einen sehr kräftigen Körperbau schliessen; ob dieselben einem Krokodil oder Alligator angehören, ist, nachdem die Schädelknochen gänzlich fehlen, nicht zu constatiren, trotzdem einige Aehnlichkeit des Zahnbaues im Unterkiefer mit den schon beschriebenen fossilen Alligatoren vorhanden ist."]. Its type specimen is a series of specimen (NJG 203838 to 203848 and corresponding counterparts), a partial skeleton (a mandible, isolated teeth, some ribs, vertebrae, limb elements and osteoderms, all belonging to the same individual), and it is a 3D body fossil. Its type locality is Schönegg, Wies coal seam, which is in a Miocene mire/swamp coal in the Eibiswald Formation of Austria.

    It was recombined as Diplocynodon styriacus by Ginsburg and Bulot (1997), Böhme (2002) and Böhme (2010); it was synonymized subjectively with Diplocynodon ungeri by Martin and Gross (2011).
  • Crocodilus steineri was named by Hofmann (1887). Its type specimen is MUL 21, a skull, and it is a 3D body fossil. Its type locality is Vordersdorf, which is in a Miocene mire/swamp coal in the Eibiswald Formation of Austria.

    It was synonymized subjectively with Diplocynodon ungeri by Martin and Gross (2011).
