If I remember correctly, the type specimen of _A. arctunguis_ is
headless. The holotype for _A. sarcophagus_ is a crushed skull. The
two specimens also come from different formations.
_A. arctunguis_ is usually regarded as a slender morph of _A.
sarcophagus_. Future research may show it to be a different species
