    • Hi, @mackenzie-white, What helped you identify this as a Phytosaurus? Do you have any other images possibly with a scale bar?

      We can update your classification to Order Thecodontia > Family Phytosauridae.
      I wasn’t able to find information on the Blue Mesa Member, do you have a reference I could look at?
      Here is what I found on the Chinle:
      Is it both the group and the formation?

      Talk to you soon,

      • Group and formation are Chinle. When I was on site, the principal field investigator identified it as Phytosaur. The classification can be updated. Thank you!

        • Hm so maybe just Blue Mesa is incorrect then? Macrostrat suggests its from the Cenozoic which wouldn’t match the rest of the information!
