The other adult specimen of L. Valceresii from Ca' del Frate

This new specimens shares one character diagnostic for L. valceresii (ratio between the lenght of the orbits and that temporal fenestrae equal to 1.9) but shows an high degree of pachyostosis, which is absent in L. valceresii holotype. The robustness of the humerus with respect to the holotype may represent sexual dimorphism as in Neusticosaurus.
