<< Sorry that this is not directly about dinos, but can anybody give the the
families of Aetosauria and Parasuchia? I can only find one family for
each of these, does this mean that these taxa should really end in -idae
(because monofamilial taxa are unacceptable)? Thanks for your indulgence. >>
AETOSAURIA Nicholson & Lydekker, 1889
Aetosauridae (ex Aethosauridae) Baur, 1887
Stagonolepididae Agassiz, 1844
Some consider these families to be synonyms, so that only the family
Stagonolepididae is used.
PARASUCHIA Huxley, 18785
Mystriosuchidae Huene, 1915
Palaeorhininae Long & Murry, 1995
Mystriosuchinae Nopcsa, 1928
Angistorhinidae Huene, 1936
Angistorhininae Camp, 1930
Rutiodontinae Long & Murry, 1995
Pseudopalatinae Long & Murry, 1995
The above follows the phylogenies developed by Long & Murry in their 1995
monograph as well as the unpublished doctoral dissertation of Adrian Hunt.
Families such as Parasuchidae and Phytosauridae have doubtful genera as
nominal types and should not be considered valid.
