Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
S. J. Nesbitt et al. 2009Differs from all other dinosauromorphs in possessing the following synapmorphies: 1) a concave posterolateral surface of the crista tibiofibularis of the distal end of the femur; 2) distinct scar on the anterior surface of the distal end of the femur; and 3) posterolateral condyle of the proximal portion of the tibia is ventrally deflected or “hooked.”
