Two characters of the mandible, the mandibular glenoid fossa lying just posterior to the occipital condyle [10.1] as in Megacephalosaurus eulerti and Brachauchenius lucasi (although not shared with Kronosaurus queenslandicus MCZ 1284); and a retroarticular process inflected slightly posteromedially [123.1] as in Kronosaurus queenslandicus (MCZ 1284), Megacephalosaurus eulerti and Brachauchenius lucasi (Benson & Druckenmiller, 2014, and references therein), are shared, together with homodont and dentition [133.0], as in Megacephalosaurus eulerti (Schumacher, et al., 2013) and Brachauchenius lucasi (Williston, 1907).
The posterior part of the surangular extends to reach the lateral posterior tip of the retroarticular process. On its dorsolateral margin, the surangular has a well-marked longitudinal crest that runs from the glenoid fossa as far as its anterior region; this is also present in AR-1-1097, but less marked.
