The Brachaucheninae node is supported by 10 synapomorphies, seven of which are present in MP111209-1: the parasphenoid is covered by the pterygoids, anterior to the posterior interpterygoid vacuities [86.0]; the palatine does not participate in the rim of the internal naris as seen in ventral view [93.1]; the pterygoid tapers anteriorly [95.0]; the mandibular symphysis tapers anteriorly in ventral view [113.0]; the long axis of the retroarticular process is inflected slightly posteromedially [123.1]; there is only one rib facet in the anterior-middle cervical vertebrae [160.3]; the cervical rib facets are located laterally [162.1].
vitae and the other derived brachauchenines are distinguished from this basal polytomy by the absence of a postorbital-squamosal contact [42.1], the squamosal anterior extension significantly posterior to the postorbital bar [57.1], the parasphenoid terminating just anterior to the basisphenoid-basioccipital contact [84.1], the absence of foramina between the maxilla and the vomer, anterior to the internal naris [90.0]; four premaxillary teeth [131.0]; teeth with a rounded or sub-rounded cross-section [139.0]; and the presence of 15 or fewer cervical vertebrae [152.0].
