Greererpeton burkemorani (Romer 1969, Smithson 1982, Godfrey 1989; Early Carboniferous, 320 mya; 1.5 m in length). Godfrey thought it nested closer to Proterogyrinus than to Ichthyostega. Here Greererpeton nests as an offshoot of the temnospondyls.
The skull was flattened with orbits on top of the skull. The lacrimal does not contact the naris. The torso included some 41 presacral vertebrae. The ribs were robust and extended laterally. The pectoral girdle was robust. The limbs were small.
Juveniles are known with orbits not so dorsally oriented, but otherwise similar.
