M3#768_ULDG-KPO1

The specimen consists of a partial cranium prepared out of a calcareous phosphate matrix. The partial cranium lacks the anterior part of the rostrum, the cranial roof, and most of the basicranium apart from the left zygomatic process of the squamosal. The maxilla, nasal, palatine, pterygoid, alisphenoid, and squamosal bones are preserved, as well as two incomplete dental rows described hereafter.
