Sophineta cracoviensis (Evans and Borsuk-Bialynicka 2009) Early Triassic ~250 mya ~1 cm skull length was orginally considered a sister to living squamates (Iguania + Scleroglossa). Here Scandensia was derived from a sister to Paliguana and Scandensia.
Distinct from Paliguana, the skull of Sophineta had a larger naris and a larger postorbital region. The lacrimal was smaller or fused to the maxilla. The jugal was smaller, extending only to mid orbit, so the maxilla contacted the orbit broadly anteriorly. The squamosal was larger and descended nearly to the base of the quadrate. The ascending process of the maxilla was oval in shape. The pineal opening was larger. The upper temporal fenstrae were larger and larger than the lateral temporal fenestrae.
