J. D. Gardner 1999Species of Albanerpeton most similar to A. golaktion and unnamed middle Campanian species in having premaxilla with suprapalatal pit triangular to slit-like in lingual outline, but differs from these and all other congeners in having premaxilla with lingual face of pars dorsalis bearing a facet dorsomedially, the ventrolateral margin of which is formed by a dorsal expansion of the more lateral internal strut.
