Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
J. D. Harris and P. Dodson 2004Supraoccipital with ventral end drawn out into narrow, elongate process that contributes very little to dorsal margin of foramen magnum; basioccipital does not contribute to dorsal side of occipital condylar neck; antotic processes of laterosphenoid separated from frontals by deep notches; cranial cervical neural spines restricted to caudal halves of their respective centra, craniocaudally compressed, expanded distally, concave on all sides, and not bifurcate; distal caudal (“whiplash”) centra amphiplatyan; dorsal tuberculum of humerus well developed; proximal articular surface of tibia wider mediolaterally than long craniocaudally; calcaneus spheroidal; pedal phalanges longer proximodistally than wide mediolaterally.
