Despite that the origin of rebbachisaurids is retrieved as Late Jurassic is not until the upper Lower Cretaceous that this group can be recognised in the fossil record. The group is geographically restricted to Gondwana and Europe, and is particularly diverse in the lower Upper Cretaceous of South America. In this subcontinent, Early Cretaceous forms are solely represented by Amazonsaurus and Zapalasaurus, being the former the putative basalmost rebbachisaurid known. Here, we provide a revised… 

A New Early Cretaceous Brachiosaurid (Dinosauria, Neosauropoda) from Northwestern Gondwana (Villa De Leiva, Colombia)

ABSTRACT Brachiosaurid sauropods achieved a broad distribution during the Late Jurassic, which has been considered to provide evidence of their origins during the Middle Jurassic, prior to the

Rebbachisaurid sauropods in Asia? A re-evaluation of the phylogenetic position of Dzharatitanis kingi from the Late Cretaceous of Uzbekistan

The reinterpretation of Dzharatitanis as a titanosaur with lognkosaurian affinities suggests a wider biogeographic distribution of this group of colossosaurs during the Cretaceous, and there is no reliable evidence to assume that rebbachisaurid sauropods have inhabited Asia.

A new rebbachisaurid sauropod from the Aptian–Albian, Lower Cretaceous Rayoso Formation, Neuquén, Argentina

Gondwanan Jurassic non-neosauropod eusauropods are key for the understanding of sauropod evolution, although their phylogenetic interrelationships remain poorly understood. However, following the

A turiasaurian sauropod dinosaur from the Early Cretaceous Wealden Supergroup of the United Kingdom

Although turiasaurs show clear heterodont dentition, only broad, characteristically ‘heart’-shaped teeth can currently be attributed to Turiasauria with confidence, and accordingly, several putative turiasaur occurrences based on isolated teeth from Europe, as well as the Middle Jurassic and Early Cretaceous of Africa, cannot be confidently referred to Turiaauria.

New Material of Katepensaurus goicoecheai (Sauropoda: Diplodocoidea) and Its Significance for the Morphology and Evolution of Rebbachisauridae

New fossils of Katepensaurus goicoecheai Ibiricu, Casal, Martínez, Lamanna, Luna, and Salgado are described and two new autapomorphies of this rebbachisaurid are proposed, enhancing the understanding of morphological diversity within Rebbachisauridae and augment the diagnosis of Kate pensaurus.

New Rebbachisaurid (Sauropoda, Diplodocoidea) Cranial Remains from the Cretaceous oF Patagonia, Argentina, and the First Endocranial Description for a South American Representative of the Clade

ABSTRACT Here we report new rebbachisaurid material (MMCh-PV 71) recovered from the Candeleros Formation (Cenomanian) of northwest Patagonia, Argentina. The cranial remains consist of a partial



Demandasaurus darwini, a New Rebbachisaurid Sauropod from the Early Cretaceous of the Iberian Peninsula

A new medium-sized rebbachisaurid sauropod from the Castrillo la Reina Formation (Upper Barremian-Lower Aptian) in Burgos Province, Demandasaurus darwini gen. et sp. nov., is described. It is known

First rebbachisaurid dinosaur (Sauropoda, Diplodocoidea) from the early Cretaceous of Spain: : palaeobiogeographical implications

The Burgos diplodocoid appears to be one of the earliest representative of the Rebbachisau-ridae, and supports previous evidence of a land connection between Europe and Africa across the Tethys seaway sometime in the early Cretaceous.

A phylogenetic analysis of Diplodocoidea (Saurischia: Sauropoda)

A new phylogenetic analysis is presented that resolves many of the outstanding questions regarding the relationships within Diplodocoidea and examines palaeobiogeographical trends within the group.

Osteology and phylogenetic relationships of Tehuelchesaurus benitezii (Dinosauria, Sauropoda) from the Upper Jurassic of Patagonia

The phylogenetic relationships of this taxon are tested through an extensive cladistic analysis that recovers Tehuelchesaurus as a non-titanosauriform camarasauromorph, deeply nested within Neosauropoda.

A revision of Titanosaurus Lydekker (dinosauria ‐ sauropoda), the first dinosaur genus with a ‘Gondwanan’ distribution

The early appearance of titanosaur ichnofossils and body fossils precludes a vicariant origin for the group, but such a pattern cannot yet be ruled out for lower‐level taxa within Titanosauria.


Abstract We describe sauropod material from the Lower Cretaceous (Aptian-Albian) Puesto Quiroga Member of the Lohan Cura Formation, exposed at the Cerro Aguada del León locality (La Picaza area,

The significance of Suuwassea emilieae (Dinosauria: Sauropoda) for flagellicaudatan intrarelationships and evolution

The postparietal foramen shared by Suuwassea, Dicraeosaurus, Tornieria and Amargasaurus may correlate to preferred existence in near‐shore, terrestrial environments and thus sheds light on the evolutionary origins of the Flagellicaudata.
