|A. M. Báez et al. 2012||Neobatrachian frog that differs from all other extinct and extant taxa in having the following combination of characters: dermal skull bones lacking ornamentation, frontoparietals partially fused to one another, bearing narrow supraorbital flanges along the anterior orbital length, and not fused to the well-ossified sphenethmoid but par- tially fused to the prootics; prootic bearing high epiotic eminence and wide, distally expanded crista parotica; squamosal with wide zygomatic ramus that contacts maxilla; palatine present; pterygoid with flattened anterior ramus bearing a distinct dorsally directed process that probably contacted the squamosal and robust medial ramus broadly articulated with the parasphenoid ala; occipital condyles narrowly separated from one another and not stalked; axial skeleton consisting of eight discrete, procoelous presacral vertebrae, sacrum, and urostyle; transverse processes of presacrals, except atlas, similarly mediolaterally developed and nearly as transversely wide as the width of the sacral diapophyses; round and narrow sacral diapophyses; and anterior portion of iliac shafts lacking well-developed dorsal crest.|
