Critique
No definition has been proposed. This taxon can be considered equivalent to Coelophysidae. Although Podokesauridae has priority by 14 years, this family-level taxon is based on the small theropod Podokesaurus holyokensis, whose holotype was destroyed in a fire. Hence, the taxon Coelophysidae has gained widespread usage, while Podokesauridae has generally been regarded as a junior synonym.
