Adelospondylus watsoni is only known from a small skull from the Lower carboniferous of Scotland (It was erroneously reported being from the Upper Carboniferous). It belongs to a very poorly known group of Lepospondyli amphibians called Adelospondyli consisting of four genera of very elongated aquatic animals with tiny limbs.
