Dinocephalosaurus, an archosauromorph, is now the earliest known tetrapod to have live birth. This suggests that live birth has evolved independently multiple times as living archosaurs don't give live birth.

What?!  Choristoderes have been known to be oviviparous for ages now!  Are they not considered archosaurimorphs anymore or something?

Don't know

The phylogenetic position of choristoderans is also ambiguously resolved in this analysis, but is constrained to the base of either Lepidosauromorpha or Archosauromorpha. Six synapomorphies support the position of choristoderans within Archosauromorpha and Lepidosauromorpha in each case (see Synapomorphies of some trees that include choristoderans in Results). It should be noted that only three additional steps are necessary to force the position of choristoderans outside Sauria, and the present taxonomic and character sample is not focused on non-archosauromorph diapsids. Therefore, this result invites future work testing the phylogenetic position of the group within Neodiapsida in light of the information provided here.

Early Triassic archosaurimorphs made dinosaurs look like a bunch of conservative homebody fuddy-duddies.  Take, for instance, erythrosuchids and sharovipteryx.

 

Well thank God the second one is subsonic in all realistic flight regimes...

 

Even a slightly transonic flying god damn dinosaur would give me nightmares for years!

 

*Damn lizards breaking our windows by going supersonic*

 

"Well technically dear they're only supersonic at altitudes of 8000 feet above sea level or greater"
