Homoeosaurus solnhofensis (H. maximiliani Meyer 1847) Late Jurassic ~150 mya, 15-30 cm in length, nests with the protosquamate Dalinghosaurus. was derived from a sister to Hoyalacerta and was basal to MFSN 19235. Homoeosaurus appears to be a late surviving member of this Late Permian/Early Triassic radiation.
Distinct from Hoyalacerta, the taller skull of Homoeosaurus had a smaller orbit and naris. The jugal had a distinct quadratojugal process. The parietals were shorter. The mandible was convex ventrally.
Compared to the smaller Daohugo lizard, the torso was shorter, the tail was more robust, and the tarsal were better ossified.
