Branchiosaur Amphibian

Branchiosaurus is a genus of small, lightly built early prehistoric amphibians. Fossils have been discovered in strata dating from the late Pennsylvanian Epoch to the Permian Period. This is a rarely seen amphibian; known as Apateon pedestris, thought to be a precursor of the salamanders. The family derives its name from the gill structures that are present from larvae to adult.
