Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
J. D. Gardner 2000Genus of albanerpetontid differing from Albanerpeton inhaving fused frontals more derived in bearing bulbous-shaped internasal process and more primitive in retaining hourglass- or bell-shaped outline. Differs further from Albanerpeton in another six frontal character states ofuncertain polarities: ratio of midline length to width across posterior edge betweenlateral edges of ventrolateral crests greater than about 1.2; intemasal process ventrolaterally has facet for dorsally overlapping medial edge of nasal; anterolateral process a poorly differentiated, broadly rounded shoulder; dorsal and ventral edges of slot for receipt of prefrontal not excavated mediallv: anterior end of orbital margin located anterior to anteroposterior midpoint of frontals; and orbital margin deeply concave in dorsal or ventral outline, occasionally deflected posterolaterally near posterior end.
G. J. McGowan 2002An albanerpetontid in which the frontal differs from that of Albanerpetonin having a wide bulbous, almost circular anterior process; orbital margins curved and longer than half the anterior-posterior frontal length (>60%).
