Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
D. B. Weishampel et al. 2003A node-based taxon consisting of the most recent common ancestor of Zalmoxes robustus and Rhabdodon priscus and all the descendants of this common ancestor. It is diagnosed by the following features: more than 12 sharp ridges on the lingual side of the crowns of the dentary teeth, a straight to slightly convex dorsal margin of the ilium in lateral view and a distinctly bowed femur in anterior view. Potential apomorphies of Rhabdodontidae also include strong twisting of the preacetabular process of the ilium, a narrow, poorly defined acetabular margin on the ilium and the absence of metatarsal V.
P.-E. Dieudonné et al. 2016Rhabdodontidae is defined by the combination of the following synap- omorphies (see phylogenetic analysis): 1) a humerus with a flat proximal anterior surface, i.e. devoid of any bicipital sulcus, 2) a humerus with a concave lateral border between the head and the deltopectoral crest in anteroposterior view, 3) an ulna with a relatively large olecranon process. A potential apomorphy would be a femur with a crest-like, non-pendant fourth trochanter.
