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
P. Godefroit et al. 1998Iguanodontia characterized by more than one replacement tooth in each tooth position; crowns firmly cemented together to form a rigid battery; articular surface of the occipital condyle not steeply inclined downwards; basipterygoid processes long and slender, projecting more ventrally than the occipital condyle; presence of fontanelles on the skull of younger specimens; absence of surangular foramen; maxillary teeth miniaturized, bearing a single large carina; preacetabular process of ilium very deflected ventrally; antitrochanter of ilium developed; obturator foramen of pubis fully open; transverse widening of the proximal head of the tibia extending distally.
