We gathered cranial measurements from 482 Lystrosaurus skulls in order to compare body size proxies from Early Triassic specimens. Measurements were taken using Mitutoyo digital calipers (±0.02mm) at the following institutions: Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture, Washington, USA; American Museum of Natural History, New York, USA; Evolutionary Studies Institute, (formerly Bernard Price Institute for Paleontological Research), University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, South Africa; The Field Museum of Natural History, Chicago, Illinois, USA; Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology and Paleoanthropology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing, China; National Museum, Bloemfontein, South Africa; Iziko, The South African Museum, Cape Town, South Africa. Measurement data were also compiled from a survey of the literature.
