(a) reconstruction of Pangaea during the Cisuralian (278 Myr ago) showing the location of the Parnaíba Basin, and provenance and age of previous rhinesuchid and dvinosaurid temnospondyls: 1, southern USA (Cisuralian); 2, Greenland (Triassic); 3, Russian Platform (Triassic); 4, Paraná Basin (Lopingian); 5, Karoo Basin (Lopingian rhinesuchids and Triassic dvinosaurids); 6, Malawi (Lopingian); 7, Madagascar (Lopingian); 8, India (Lopingian). (b) Cladogram displaying the interrelationships of Rhinesuchidae with Dvinosauria and the position of Timonya and Procuhy within this group; symmetric resampling and decay index values are provided right and left of each node, respectively (symmetric resampling was calculated from 10.000 replicates [p=33] and decay index from 691 trees).
