The proximal cotyles are ellipsoidal in contour and both are subequal in size and morphology, whereas in Gigantobatrachus these cotyles are strongly asymmetrical (CASAMIQUELA, 1963).
satan from the Ranoidea, including distally expanded sacral vertebrae, anterior presacral vertebrae with transverse processes elongate, transverse processes of posterior presacral vertebrae shortened, sacral vertebra with well-developed postzygapophyses, and atlantal cotyles closely approximated medially, a combination of characters shared by C.
