Genus - Typespecies - Skull
The rostal portion of a small skull, including, the lower jaw. Other material tentatively associated with the specimen includes a single tooth and a portion of a humerus. The skull was described but poorly illustrated by Young (1948) and is 70 mm long, extending back as far as the middle of the orbit.
The snout is rather deep for its size and quite robust compared with many small theropods. The teeth were discribed as typically theropod, being laterally compressed, recurved and serrated.
