For crying out loud.

Anyway, the same issue has a paper on *Azendohsaurus*. The "prosauropod" from Madagascar is referred to it as a new species, and *Azendohsaurus* is neither an ornithischian nor a sauropodomorph. In fact, it's not an archosauriform at all. There's no trace of an antorbital fenestra, and the lateral temporal fenestra is still open ventrally!

This blog post has more information, including a skull reconstruction:
