  • Abstract:  The postcranium of Ictidosuchoides from the Dicynodon Assemblage Zone of the Beaufort Group (Karoo Supergroup) of South Africa is described to illustrate the usefulness of the pectoral girdle for identification purposes within the Baurioidea. Only the anterior of this unique skeleton is preserved, but it is possible to describe the morphology of both dorsal and ventral views. The remarkably well-preserved pectoral girdle shows the slender scapula, low scapular ridge, shallow scapular depression, ossified cleithrum, long T-shaped interclavicle, procoracoid present in the glenoid, procoracoid foramen enclosed by the procoracoid, and ossified oval sternum. The ectepicondylar foramen of the humerus is absent and five distals are present in the carpus.
