Abstract (in english)
   Limnogyrinus elegans (Fritsch) is the most primitive micromelerpetontid temnospondyl from the Upper Carbonifefireous of Nýřany, Czech Republic. A recent revision of the taxon by Werneburg (1994) attributed to this species a skull in dorsal aspect which was significantly larger than any previously reported and showed evidence of snout elongation. Restudy of this specimen demonstrates it to be a skull, visible in ventral aspect, of a juvenile of Cochleosaurus bohemicus, a more primitive edopoid temnospondyl, which is frequent in the Nýřany assemblage. Werneburg´s diagnosis of Limnogyrinus is revised and the problems of constructing ontogenetic series are discussed
