Abstract

A new collection of fauna was recently discovered in the locality Arnultovice (Early Permian, Sakmarian, Prosečné Formation, Kalná Lake) of the Krkonoše Piedmont Basin. Actinopterygians of the genus Paramblypterus are the most prevalent vertebrate fauna. Skeletal fragments with well-preserved lower jaw of a large amphibian of the superfamily Eryopoidea are a new and surprising discovery in the Krkonoše Piedmont Basin. Small amphibians of the family Branchiosauridae occur in the lower part of the fossiliferous horizon of laminated claystone, and round out enumeration of the fauna.
