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.
|M. G. Lockley et al. 2006||Trackway of a large biped; digitigrade; four straight, anteriorly oriented digit impressions; clear basal pad, related to the presence of an ubiquitous fifth digit on the posterolateral margin; digits almost completely separate along their lengths; foot axis orientation slightly variable from inward to outward.|
