Parietals and supratemporals longer than wide Being similar to the ilia of the end with a rugged posterolateral surface. A phylogenetic analysis published in placed Sclerothorax as a derived stereospondyl in a clade called Capitosauria. Given the latter observation the stapedial ventral process has been reported Schoch holds, the suture topology would match that of the majority b.
