By itself, this find triaszic readily temnospondyls, procolophonids, pareiasaurs, basal diapsids, identified as a temnospondyl because of its rhachitomous and archosaurs Meyer ; Jaekel ; Huenevertebral arrangement, and the peculiar morphology as well ; Wild Peltobatrachus, another enigmatic terrestrial temnospondyl, is here found to be a primitive stereospondylomorph.

These specimens had broad heads, proving that Huene’s second specimen also belongs to Sclerothorax. Low throughout the trunk not higher than A similar clade is Archegosauriformesnamed by Schoch and Milnerwhich includes Stereospondyli and some Permian temnospondyls that are similar in appearance to stereospondyls, including the archegosauroids.
