The holotype is a diagnostic right maxilla (BMNH 38646). Lots of
miscellaneous junk has been referred to the taxon over the years. Take a look
at the following:
Galton, P. M., 1985. "The poposaurid thecodontian _Teratosaurus suevicus_ v.
Meyer, plus referred specimens mostly based on prosauropod dinosaurs, from
the Middle Stubensandstein (Upper Triassic) of Nordwuerttemberg,"
