       A relative to genera such as Eogyrinus,‭ ‬Diplovertebron was a small amphibian predator that lived in the Carboniferous swamps of Europe.‭ ‬Overall the bone structure of Diplovertebron seems to be quite primitive,‭ ‬with the otic notches of the skull being very small,‭ ‬and the limbs being lightly built.‭ ‬Overall,‭ ‬even though Diplovertebron could probably leave the water,‭ ‬it was probably a far more capable hunter when in the water.‭
