Species

Labidosaurikos is an extinct genus of prehistoric reptile. It was 1.3 m (4.3 ft) long. The heavily ornamented skull of L. meachami measures about 28 cm in length. A second species of Labidosaurikos, L. barkeri, has been described from the deepest part of the "Choza Formation" (upper part of Clear Fork Group) of North Texas in 1954 but has been questioned as early as 1959. It differs from L. meachami in having one less row of teeth in both maxillary and dentary. The material, however, is fragmentary.[3]
