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
R. B. J. Benson 2008Tyrannosauroid theropod differing from other tyrannosauroids due to the following autapomorphic characters of the ilium: blade with semi-oval outline in lateral view; narrow preacetabular notch; distinct, posterodorsally inclined, vertical ridge on lateral surface dorsal to acetabulum developed as ‘corrugated’ structure with a complementary groove following the corresponding structure on the medial face.
