Synapsids are a group of animals that contains the mammals and every animal more closely related to mammals than any other extant amniotes.

They are easily separated from other amniotes by having a temporal fenestra, an opening low in the skull roof behind each eye, leaving a bony arch beneath each; this accounts for their name.
