Osteology of Galeamopus pabsti sp. nov. (Sauropoda: Diplodocidae), with implications for neurocentral closure timing, and the cervico-dorsal transition in diplodocids

The association of ribs with their respective vertebraes shows that the transition between cervical and dorsal vertebrae is significantly different in Galeamopus pabsti than in Diplodocus carnegii or Apatosaurus louisae, and diplodocids show a surprisingly high diversity in the Morrison Formation.

Articulated bone sets of manus and pedes of Camarasaurus (Sauropoda, Dinosauria)

Skeletons of sauropods are rarely found with fore and hind feet, and until now, only one specimen of this clade has been reported with all four autopodia preserved complete and articulated. This

A specimen-level phylogenetic analysis and taxonomic revision of Diplodocidae (Dinosauria, Sauropoda)

The use of a specimen-, rather than species-based approach increases knowledge of intraspecific and intrageneric variation in diplodocids, and the study demonstrates how specimen-based phylogenetic analysis is a valuable tool in sauropod taxonomy, and potentially in paleontology and taxonomy as a whole.

Osteology of the Late Jurassic Portuguese sauropod dinosaur Lusotitan atalaiensis (Macronaria) and the evolutionary history of basal titanosauriforms

The results support the generic separation of the contemporaneous taxa Brachiosaurus, Giraffatitan, and Lusotitan, with the latter recovered as either a brachiosaurid or the sister taxon to Titanosauriformes.


Through phylogenetic analysis, it is shown that neural spine bifurcation is not a key character in sauropod phylogeny and that Suuwassea and Haplocanthosaurus are almost certainly not juveniles of known diplodocids.

A new basal rebbachisaurid (Sauropoda, Diplodocoidea) from the Early Cretaceous of the Neuquén Basin; evolution and biogeography of the group

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

New information on the anatomy and systematic position of Dinheirosaurus lourinhanensis (Sauropoda: Diplodocoidea) from the Late Jurassic of Portugal, with a review of European diplodocoids

Dinheirosaurus lourinhanensis is redescribe from the Late Jurassic of Portugal and Amazonsaurus is identified as the basal-most rebbachisaurid and Zapalasaurus outside of the South American Limaysaurinae, suggesting the biogeographic history of rebbach isaurids is more complex than previously proposed.

Re-Assessment of the Late Jurassic Eusauropod Dinosaur Hudiesaurus sinojapanorum Dong, 1997, from the Turpan Basin, China, and the Evolution of Hyper-Robust Antebrachia in Sauropods

Phylogenetic analyses confirm that Hudiesaurus is a CMT and the sister taxon of Xinjiangtitan, and links the convergent evolution of robust antebrachia and an enlarged olecranon in CMTs, titanosaurs, and some ornithischians to a more flexed orientation of the forearm, an enhanced role for the forelimb in locomotion, and an anterior shift in the whole-body center of mass.

Anatomy and systematics of the diplodocoid Amphicoelias altus supports high sauropod dinosaur diversity in the Upper Jurassic Morrison Formation of the USA

The number of sauropod dinosaur species in the Morrison Formation is currently likely to be underestimated, not overestimated, and Diplodocus is retained as a distinct genus.
