This differs from the diagrams in Dave's published paper (Fig 14 and 15) but 
seems to be about the same as Fig 16. Inasmuch as none of these is given 
preference and they are used mainly to show the phylogenetic distance between 
pterosaurs and archosaurs according to three different analyses, it's best to 
regard the root of Prolacertiformes as unresolved in Dave's paper. I don't 
usually go by Internet publication, which can be too readily changed.
