Stegocephalia is an old term for early large amphibians, comprising all pre-Jurassic and some later extinct large amphibians with a salamander-like cranial build. The term was coined in 1868 by Edward Drinker Cope. The term “labyrinthodonts” is now applied to this group as a grade term. Current evidence shows that the “labyrinthodonts” appear to be paraphyletic. From the library of University of Michigan paleontologist, John A. Dorr with his signature, dated Nov. 1949, on the front wrapper.
