Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDiagnosis From Preiede et al. (2012): "Two thirds of the width of the collar is accounted for by a pair of gradually tapering lateral lips, each three times longer than its anterior/
posterior dimension basally. A conical nuchal protuberance projects dorsally from the anterior dorsal ridge of the collar on either side of the midline." [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEditor's comment "Genus A" in Osborn et al. 2012 [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology This genus is named after the Star Wars character - the lateral lips look like his ears. [details]
