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.
|D. C. Fortier and C. L. Schultz 2009||Small neosuchian that is distinguished from other advanced neosuchian genera by the possession of the following combination of features: massive postorbital bar (character 70-0), quadratojugal forming the caudal angle of the infratemporal fenestra (character 75-0), quadrate jugal extends to the superior angle of infratemporal fenestra (character 80-0), linear frontoparietal suture (character 86-0), supratemporal fenestra with fossa (character 87-0), rostromedial corner of supratemporal fenestra smooth (character 92-1), margin of orbit flush with skull surface (character 103-0), quadrate bearing a small, ventrally reflected medial hemicondyle (112-0), parietal and squamosal meet along caudal wall of the supratemporal foramen (131-2), exoccipital with small or no boss medial to the paroccipital process, long process lateral to the caudal aperture of the cranioquadrate canal (character 141-1), and postorbital inset from the lateral edge of the dorsal part of the postorbital (character 175-1). All these features are present in both Susisuchus anatoceps and S. jaguaribensis, and represent the main features to differentiate them from other advanced neosuchians.|
