Cranial anatomy of the Late Jurassic dwarf sauropod Europasaurus holgeri (Dinosauria, Camarasauromorpha): ontogenetic changes and size dimorphism
TLDR
All the autapomorphic characters of Europasaurus recognized in the skull are considered to have evolved through paedomorphosis, which resulted in the dwarf condition of this taxon.
The Braincase of the Basal Sauropod Dinosaur Spinophorosaurus and 3D Reconstructions of the Cranial Endocast and Inner Ear
TLDR
In contrast to what might be expected early within a lineage leading to plant-eating graviportal quadrupeds, Spinophorosaurus and other (but not all) sauropodomorphs show no reduction of the vestibular apparatus of the inner ear.
Osteología embrionaria de saurópodos titanosaurios de Neuquén (Argentina): aspectos ontogenéticos y evolutivos
TLDR
Several of the characters, including the snout with “stepped” anterior margin and the infratemporal fenestra extending ventrally to the orbit support the identification of the embryos as eusauropods.
A new species of the primitive dinosaur Thecodontosaurus (Saurischia: Sauropodomorpha) and its implications for the systematics of early dinosaurs
Synopsis Juvenile sauropodomorph specimens from a Late Triassic/Early Jurassic fissure fill in Pant‐y‐ffynnon Quarry, South Wales are redescribed and named as a new species, Thecodontosaurus caducus.
Complex Overlapping Joints between Facial Bones Allowing Limited Anterior Sliding Movements of the Snout in Diplodocid Sauropods
TLDR
A well-preserved diplodocid skull visible in medial view is described, which seems to have evolved to alleviate stresses inflicted on the snout during backward movements of the head, as would be expected during branch-stripping or raking.
Sauropod tooth morphotypes from the Upper Jurassic of the Lusitanian Basin (Portugal)
The Upper Jurassic of the Lusitanian Basin has yielded an important fossil record of sauropods, but little information is available about the tooth morphotypes represented in this region. A large
The first specimen of Camarasaurus (Dinosauria: Sauropoda) from Montana: The northernmost occurrence of the genus
TLDR
Histological study indicates that, although the specimen is relatively small statured, it is skeletally mature; this further emphasizes that size is not a undeviating proxy to maturity in dinosaurs, and that morphologies associated with an individual’s age and stature may be more nebulous in sauropods.
A Basal Lithostrotian Titanosaur (Dinosauria: Sauropoda) with a Complete Skull: Implications for the Evolution and Paleobiology of Titanosauria
TLDR
A number of distinctive morphologies—such as the ossified cervical tendon, extremely pneumatized cervical vertebrae, and a habitually downward-facing snout—that have rarely, if ever, been documented in other titanosaurs are documented, thus broadening the understanding of the anatomical diversity of this remarkable sauropod clade.
A new titanosauriform sauropod (Dinosauria: Saurischia) from the Lower Cretaceous of Hyogo, Japan.
TLDR
The discovery of T. amicitiae suggests that East Asian basal titanosauriforms were diverse not only in the number of the taxa but also in the morphological variation of the caudal elements.
The cranial anatomy of the sauropod Turiasaurus riodevensis and implications for its phylogenetic relationships
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses support the view that Turiasaurus, Losillasaurus and Galveosaurus form a monophyletic Turiasauria clade that lies just outside of Neosauropoda, but the relationships of other taxa become less stable.
