Orovenator is an extinct genus of diapsid from Lower Permian
(Sakmarian stage) deposits of Oklahoma, USA. It is known from two
partial skulls from the Richards Spur locality in Oklahoma. The
holotype OMNH 74606 consists of a partial skull preserving snout
and mandible, and the referred specimen, OMNH 74607, a partial
skull preserving the skull roof, vertebrae and palatal elements. It
was first named by Robert R. Reisz, Sean P. Modesto and Diane M.
Scott in 2011 and the type species is Orovenator mayorum. The
generic name means "mountain," oro, in Greek in reference to the
Richards Spur locality, which was mountainous during the Permian
period and "hunter," venator, in Latin. The specific name honours
Bill and Julie May. Orovenator is the oldest and most basal
neodiapsid to date.
