Just a quick post as I still don't have home access so am typing this in a rush in a hotel lobby....
I have no idea what this is. Its a really cool (in my opinion) way of mounting a fossil from the NYMNH. I'm sure its some sort of salamanderesque amphibian/protoreptiley thing (I seem to remember it being near Dimetrodon.
In keeping with the drawing of the mount I photoshopped the fossil itself into a line drawing style for no other reason than I thought it would look cool (and now I have I think it does).

Edit: With a hat tip to commenter Neil this beasty is a hamemrhead orboomerang salamander, one of the three Diplocaulus species. Its fromthe Permian and was likely totally aquatic.
