Like Illiosuchus, Stokeosaurus is based on an isolated ilium, with a prominent ridge extending vertically from the acetabular region. Galton, 1976 reffered this species to Illiosuchus but in light of further evidence, later withdrew this suggestion (Galton & Jensen, 1979) For the reasons given for Illiosuchus, Stokeosaurus may be a carnosaur, but further material in neccessary for any certainty.
