Comments: Jenny and colleauges (1980) and Taquet (1984) briefly reported another theropod from the late Early Jurassic of the Moroccan High Atlas. This specimen comes from the Toarcian Wazzant Formation and is currently under preparation in the Museum National d’Histoire Naturelle, in Paris. It differs clearly from Berberosaurus in its smaller size, the longer cervical vertebral centra, and the absence of a sulcus on the medial surface of the fibula (Allain, Tykoski, Aquesbi, Jalil, Monbaron, Russell, and Taquet, 2007).
