Z. Roček 2008(1) Processus zygomaticomaxillaris maxillae prominent above the level of margo orbitalis, its posterior margin vertical (hence the posterior part of the bone which articulates with quadratojugal is slender); (2) tooth row terminates at the level of the posterior end of the lamina horizontalis maxillae; and (3) margo orbitalis maxillae paralleled on the inner surface by a rounded ridge delimiting dorsally the groove for the palatoquadrate bar.
