Lilliensternus is nearly 20 ft (6 m) long, much larger than Coelophysis at 6-9 ft (2-3 m). The species is represented by two skeletons from the late Triassic of central Germany. Although the specimens are missing most of the skull, features of the vertebrae, pelvis and hindlimb identify them as coelophysoidea.
Related species Edit
most other coelophysoidea are represented only by fragmentary fossil. They include Segisaurus and Gojirasaurus from USA and Procompsognathus from Germany. The crested Dilophosaurus and bizzrare South American Zupaysaurus are sometimes regarded as coelophysoidea, but have recently been reinterpreted as more derived, or evolutionary advanced,theropods
