Abstract

A new amphibamid,Milneria huberi, is described from the Pine Shadow Member of the Wild Cow Formation (Late Pennsylvanian: middle Virgilian: middle Stephanian) at the Kinney Brick Company quarry, Manzanita Mountains, Bernalillo County, New Mexico, USA.M. huberi is distinguished from other members of the family by deep embayments of the occipital borders of the skull so that the midline portion of the postparietals projects posteriorly beyond the rest of the skull table and the post-parietals have a midline length greater than half that of the parietals.
