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.
|M. 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.|
