Crassigyrinus in The Land Before Time

It appears in the first movie, incorrectly portrayed as living during the Mesozoic era also before the reptiles too (Eusthenopteron is much older but it would be a Tetrapodomorph other than an amphibian) and with a sail on its back. It appears being chased after by a Metriorhynchus, but escapes. Since it has a sail it may actually be a Platyhisthrix (Synapsid-like amphibian) that fell into the water. It look like a small Longisquama that fell in to the water.
