is a genus of procolophonid parareptile that lived in Australia during
the late Triassic. The tooth pattern of Eomurruna
shows no collision
of the teeth, which is a trait seen in other procolophonids that are
thought to have been herbivorous. Even as a plant eater however,
there is still a possibility that Eomurruna may
have also taken
occasional insects as food.
