To date, fourteen Procynosuchid specimens have been discovered, thirteen from the Cistecephalus beds in the New Bethesda and Murraysburg districts in the Southern Karroo and one very poor specimen from the Ruhuhu Beds to the N.E. of Lake Malawi. Five genera, including eight species, have been created. This paper briefly describes the history of the classification within the family and notes some of the difficulties encountered.
