Borsuk-Bialynicka 1985 (Carolina)Differs from Shinisauroides by more slender skull bones, and, particularly so, the palate, snout, jugal, and mandible, by less steeply ascending jugal and by life position of mandible, manifested by its lateral surfaces subperpendicular to the ventral surface of the skull.
