Stagonolepis (Robertsoni​/​Wellesi​/​Olenkae)


  • Cassette + Digital Album

    Furious and Chaotic Prehistoric Metal of War!

    NO CLEAN SINGING... '...deeply distorted, gravel-throated bass seizes attention immediately, and it carries you along in a savage thrill ride along with the jet-fueled drumwork and the vocalist’s venomous shrieking. And to make the experience even more riveting, there are some magnetically attractive, body-moving riffs in the song, as well as an array of freakish arpeggios that make this head-spinning trip even more… head-spinning.

This song is about Stagonolepis, a quadruped armored herbivore with a curious beak-like snout.


Thick armoured scales ran down its body
Heavy body armour to repel carnivores
Small headed, slowly moving browser
A long intestine to digest vegetation

Beak-like tip that arched upwards
Peg-like teeth to uproot plants
Snout-like unusual structure of the skull
Allowing to dig through the undergrowth

Chewing tough cycads, horsetails and ferns
Fossil remains found in sandstones
In Lossiemouth and Krasejow deposits
Some species stratigraphically younger

Like the Stagonolepis Olenkae specimens
The genus Aetosauroides as a junior synonym
Aetosauroides Scagliai and Subsulcatus
Sequential studies to smaller specimens

Proposed they belonged to the Robertsoni
The Wellesi specimen was called Calyptosuchus
Now they belong to the same monotypic genera
And are restricted to the Carnian stage
