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.

Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
A. Cau et al. 2017Autapomorphies are marked by asterisks; differential diagnosis can be found in Supplementary Information. Platyrostral premaxilla that forms 32% of snout length* and bears 11 teeth*; external naris posterior to the premaxillary oral margin; rod-like jugal with an ascending process excluded from the orbital margin that forms only 10% of the postorbital bar*; rod-like ventral ramus of the postorbital; 22 presacral vertebrae; neck forms 50% of snout–sacrum length*; absence of epipophyses*; ridge-like cervical neural spines restricted to the 2nd–5th vertebrae*; postzygapophyses on cervicals 2–5 are fused medially and form single lobate processes*; pleurocoels restricted to cervicals 7–9; tuber-like neural spines in tail are restricted to the 1st–3rd vertebrae*; proximal-most chevrons large and pentagonal*; transition point in 7th–8th caudals; 3rd finger longer than 2nd; elongate pedal phalanx III-1 is 47% of the length of metatarsal III*.
