Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
J. I. Kirkland et al. 2013Nodosaurid ankylosaurs that share a combination of characters including: narrow predentaries; a nearly horizontal, unfused quadrates that are oriented less than 30u from the skull roof, and condyles that are 3 times transversely wider than long; premaxillary teeth and dentary teeth that are near the predentary symphysis; dorsally arched sacra; an acromion process dorsal to midpoint of the scapula-coracoid suture; straight ischia, with a straight dorsal margin; relatively long slender limbs; a sacral shield of armor; and erect sacral armor with flat bases. Struthiosaurinae is defined as the most inclusive clade containing Europelta but not Cedarpelta, Peloroplites, Sauropelta or Edmontonia.
