Record Type: concept
Diapsida (subclass) (Reptilia (class), Vertebrata (subphylum), ... Living Organisms (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Members of a taxon of reptiles who developed two pairs of temporal arches (holes behind the eye in their skull) around 300 million years ago during the late Carboniferous period. Among diapsids are dinosaurs, crocodians, lizards, snakes, turtles, and birds. Some living diapsids have lost either one hole (lizards), or both holes (snakes), or even have a heavily restructured skull (modern birds), but they are classified as diapsids based on their ancestry. There are at least 14,600 living species of diapsids.

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Taxon van reptielen die ongeveer 300 miljoen jaar geleden, in het Laat-Carboon, in hun schedel twee paren openingen achter de oogkassen ontwikkelden. Tot de diapsida behoren de dinosauriërs, krokodilachtigen, hagedissen, slangen, schildpadden en vogels. Sommige levende diapsida zijn één opening kwijtgeraakt (hagedissen) of beide openingen (slangen), of hebben een schedel die in hoge mate is veranderd (moderne vogels), maar vanwege hun afstamming worden ze toch als diapsida geclassificeerd. Er zijn ten minste 14.600 levende soorten diapsida.
