Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
M. T. Carrano et al. 2012Theropod with: (1) thin, paired nasolacrimal crests extending vertically from skull roof, each with fingerlike posterior projection (modified from Welles 1970); (2) lacrimal with thickened posterodorsal rim (Rauhut 2003); and (3) central ‘cap’ on cervical vertebral neural spines (modified from Welles 1970).
