If no rank is listed, the taxon is considered an unranked clade in modern classifications. Ranks may be repeated or presented in the wrong order because authors working on different parts of the classification may disagree about how to rank taxa.

Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
L. S. Filippi et al. 2016Furileusauria differs from all other brachyrostrans and other abelisaurids in the (1) presence of a tip in the middle area of the posterior surface of the ventral process of the postorbital, (2) presence of a knob followed by a deep notch in the postorbital-squamosal contact, (3) absence of fenestra between the frontal, postorbital and lacrimal, (4) anterior projection of the distal end of cervical epiphophyses, (5) posterior margin of the postzygapophyses at level with the intervertebral articulation in dorsal vertebrae, (6) crescent-shaped morphology of the distal tip of the transverse processes in anterior and middle caudal vertebrae, (7) transverse processes of anterior caudal vertebrae distally expanded and only anteriorly projected, (8) convex external margin of the transverse processes in the anterior caudals, (9) and cnemial crest of the tibia with a downturned process.
