The Chilean jack mackerel looks very much like the greenback horse mackerel "(Trachurus
)" found around Australia and New Zealand. The two species can be distinguished by the number of gill rakers ("T.
" 50–57, "T. murphyi" 51–65) and the number of scales and scutes in the lateral line ("T.
" 81–82, "T. murphyi" 89–113).

The greenback horse mackerel or greenback scad, "Trachurus

is a species of North American true bugs with a range from the southern United States to Guatemala and some Caribbean islands. It is the largest of this genus within this range, generally growing to be long. It can be distinguished from similar species by its much more broadly expanding pronotum, which extends much further than the abdomen, and the blunt tubercles on the midline of the anterior pronotal lobe, which is not present in other "Acanthocephala" species within its range.
Most "Lystrosaurus" fossils have been found in the Balfour and Katberg Formations of the Karoo basin in South Africa; these specimens offer the best prospects of identifying species because they are the most numerous and have been studied for the longest time. As so often with fossils, there is debate in the paleontological community as to exactly how many species have been found in the Karoo. Studies from the 1930s to 1970s suggested a large number (23 in one case). However, by the 1980s and 1990s, only six species were recognized in the Karoo: "L. curvatus", "L. platyceps", "L. oviceps", "L. maccaigi", "L. murrayi", and "L.
". A study in 2011 reduced that number to four, treating the fossils previously labeled as "L. platyceps" and "L. oviceps" as members of "L. curvatus".
The size of the shell varies between 9 mm and 19 mm. The solid, umbilicate or perforate shell has a conical shape. It is whitish, radiately maculated above and dotted beneath with red or rich brown. There are several color mutations. The conical, turrited spire is acuminate and somewhat scalariform. The about 7 whorls are very convex, spirally lirate, and radiately costate above. They are bicarinated at the periphery, and encircled by a deep canal. The convex base of the shell bears about 5 spiral lirae. The oblique aperture is rounded. The columella is sinuous in the middle (not concave, nor dentate at the base as in "Rubritrochus
" ) and arcuate above. The broad umbilicus is funnel-shaped, or narrow and almost closed,
Dicynodonts have been known since the mid-1800s. The South African geologist Andrew Geddes Bain gave the first description of dicynodonts in 1845. At the time, Bain was a supervisor for the construction of military roads under the Corps of Royal Engineers and had found many reptilian fossils during his surveys of South Africa. Bain described these fossils in an 1845 letter published in "Transactions of the Geological Society of London", calling them "bidentals" for their two prominent tusks. In that same year, the English paleontologist Richard Owen named two species of dicynodonts from South Africa: "Dicynodon lacerticeps" and "Dicynodon bainii". Since Bain was preoccupied with the Corps of Royal Engineers, he wanted Owen to describe his fossils more extensively. Owen did not publish a description until 1876 in his "Descriptive and Illustrated Catalogue of the Fossil Reptilia of South Africa in the Collection of the British Museum". By this time, many more dicynodonts had been described. In 1859, another important species called "Ptychognathus
" was named from South Africa. A year later, in 1860, Owen named the group Dicynodontia. In his "Descriptive and Illustrated Catalogue", Owen honored Bain by erecting Bidentalia as a replacement name for his Dicynodontia. The name Bidentalia quickly fell out of use in the following years, replaced by popularity of Owen's Dicynodontia.
In 1845, South African geologist Andrew Geddes Bain described the first known dicynodonts as "bidentals" for their two prominent tusks. "Bidental" was the first name ever used for a group of non-mammalian synapsids. The name Dicynodontia, which is more commonly used to refer to these animals, was erected by English paleontologist Richard Owen in 1860. Realizing that Bain's "bidentals" predated his "dicynodonts", Owen named Bidentalia in 1876 as a replacement name for Dicynodontia. Owen described Bidentalia as reptiles with "a long ever-growing tusk in each maxillary; premaxillaries connate, forming with the lower jaw a beak-shaped mouth, probably sheathed with horn. Sacrum of more than two vertebrae; trunk-vertebrae amphicoelian; limbs ambulatory." At this time, Bidentalia included three main species: "Dicynodon lacerticeps", "Dicynodon bainii", and "Ptychognathus
". The two "Dicynodon" species were named in 1845, just before Bain described his bidentals. "Ptychognathus" was named in 1859, and is now called "Lystrosaurus". In the following years Dicynodontia became the preferred name for these reptiles and Bidentalia quickly fell out of use.
