Herrerasauridae - Classification - Phylogeny

Phylogeny

The first cladogram presented here follows one proposed analysis by Fernando E. Novas, Martin D. Ezcurra, Sankar Chatterjee and T. S. Kutty in 2011. In this review, Herrerasaurus is a primitive saurischian, but not a theropod. The second cladogram is based on an analysis by Hans-Dieter Sues, Sterling J. Nesbitt, David S Berman and Amy C. Henrici, in 2011/12. This review indicated Herrerasaurus is a basal theropod.
