Youngina capensis? BPI 3859 (Broom 1922; Late Permian, ~260 mya). The genus Youngina was once considered basal to both lepidosaurs and archosaurs. That was not validated when more taxa were added to the present study as lepidosaurs were recovered with a completely different origin dating back to the origin of all reptiles.
As a genus, Youngina, is known from several skulls, not including the several attributed to Youngoides. The BPI 3859 specimen does not nest with the holotype (AMNH 5661) and the specimens related to it. So the BPI 3859 specimen is not a Youngina.
Derived from a sister to Galesphyrus BPI 3859 phylogenetically preceded Hovasaurus and was a sister to Acerosodontosaurus and Thadeosaurus. The BPI 3859 specimen has a taller scapula than Galesphyrus. Few other traits are preserved in common between the specimens.
