An online photo of Revueltosaurus (Fig. 1) adds details and clarifies problems. There is also a Vimeo video here featuring paleontologist, William Parker, who authors the Chinleana blogsite. He also discovered 11 skeletons of Revueltosaurus from one site with two that are nearly complete or complete. From that data the complete skeleton (Fig. 1) has been recreated.
With this data, Nesbitt (2011) nested Revueltosaurus at the base of the Aetosauria with Aetosaurus and Stagonolepis.
The large reptile tree, employing a different character list, nested Revueltosaurus with Postosuchus, as a derived, smaller, somewhat turtle-ized rauisuchid.
We’ll look at the pros and cons of both analyses tomorrow.
