The cynodonts ("dog teeth") ( clade Cynodontia ) are therapsids that first appeared in the Late Permian (approximately 260 Ma ). The cynodonts include modern mammals (including humans ) as well as their extinct ancestors and close relatives, but not all cynodonts were mammals.

ContentsTaxonomy[ edit ] Richard Owen

Richard Owen named Cynodontia in 1861, which he assigned to Anomodontia as a family. Robert Broom (1913) reranked Cynodonia as an infraorder, since retained by others, including Colbert and Kitching (1977), Carroll (1988), Gauthier et al. (1989), and Rubidge and Cristian Sidor (2001). Olson (1966) assigned Cynodontia to Theriodonta, Colbert and Kitching (1977) to Theriodontia , and Rubridge and Sidor (2001) to Eutheriodontia . William King Gregory (1910), Broom (1913), Carroll (1988), Gauthier et al. (1989), Hopson and Kitching (2001) and Botha et al. (2007) all considered Cynodontia as belonging to Therapsida. Botha et al. (2007) seems to have followed Owen (1861), but without specifying taxonomic rank.

In 2001, James Allen Hopson e.a. defined a clade Cynodontia as the most inclusive group containing Mammalia but excluding Bauria .

Evolutionary history[ edit ] See also: Evolution of mammals Thrinaxodon from the Early Triassic of South Africa

Together with the extinct gorgonopsians and the therocephalians , the cynodonts themselves are part of a group of therapsids called theriodonts .

The oldest and the most basal cynodont yet found is Charassognathus ( Late Permian ). Other basal cynodonts were the procynosuchids , a family that includes Procynosuchus and Dvinia . Cynodonts were among the few groups of synapsids that survived the Permian–Triassic extinction event and had a slow recovery after the extinction.

The most derived cynodonts are found within the clade Eucynodontia , which also contains the members of Mammalia . Representative genera of nonmammalian cynodonts include the large carnivorous cynognathids , the equally large herbivorous traversodonts , and the small mammal-like tritylodontids and ictidosaurs . The presence of respiratory turbinates suggests a rapid metabolism and possibly endothermy .

During their evolution , the number of cynodont jaw bones reduced. This move towards a single bone for the mandible paved the way for other bones in the jaw, the articular and angular , to migrate to the cranium, where they function as parts of the mammalian hearing system.

Cynodonts also developed a secondary palate in the roof of the mouth. This caused air flow from the nostrils to travel to a position in the back of the mouth instead of directly through it, allowing cynodonts to chew and breathe at the same time. This characteristic is present in all mammals.

Characteristics[ edit ] Bienotherium yunnanense

Early cynodonts have many of the skeletal characteristics of mammals . The teeth were fully differentiated and the braincase bulged at the back of the head. Outside of some crown-group mammals (notably the therians ), all cynodonts probably laid eggs. The temporal fenestrae were much larger than those of their ancestors, and the widening of the zygomatic arch in a more mammal-like skull would have allowed for more robust jaw musculature. They also have the secondary palate that other primitive therapsids lacked, except the therocephalians , who were the closest relatives of cynodonts. (However, the secondary palate of cynodonts primarily comprises the maxillae and palatines as in mammals, whereas the secondary palate of the therocephalians primarily comprises the maxillae and the vomer.) The dentary was the largest bone in their lower jaw.

The cynodonts probably had some form of warm-blooded metabolism. This has led to many reconstructions of cynodonts as having fur . Being endothermic they may have needed it for thermoregulation , but fossil evidence of their fur (or lack thereof) has been elusive. Modern mammals have Harderian glands secreting lipids to coat their fur, but the telltale imprint of this structure is only found from the primitive mammal Morganucodon and onwards. Nonetheless, recent studies on Permian synapsid coprolites show that more basal therapsids had fur, and at any rate fur was already present in Mammaliaformes such as Castorocauda and Megaconus .

Marks in the upper and lower jaw of cynodonts have been interpreted as channels that supplied blood vessels and nerves to whiskers . Whiskers may have been typical of cynodontia as a whole, or have evolved in this group.

Derived cynodonts developed epipubic bones. These served to strengthen the torso and support abdominal and hindlimb musculature, aiding them in the development of an erect gait, but at the expense of prolonged pregnancy, forcing these animals to give birth to highly altricial young as in modern marsupials and monotremes . Only placentals , and perhaps Megazostrodon and Erythrotherium , would lose these. A specimen of Kayentatherium does indeed demonstrate that at least tritylodontids already had a fundamentally marsupial-like reproductive style, but produced much higher litters at around 38 perinates or possibly eggs.

Cynodonts are the only known synapsid lineage to have produced aerial locomotors, with gliding and flying being known in haramiyidans and various mammal groups.
