ABSTRACT Titanosauriform sauropods were one of the most widely distributed groups of dinosaurs during the Cretaceous. In contrast to most derived forms from the Upper Cretaceous, the most basal taxa of the group are poorly known. Thus, studies on these forms are of special interest for understanding the origin and early evolution of Titanosauria. Chubutisaurus insignis del Corro, 1975, is known from postcranial remains found in the Bayo Overo Member of the Cerro Barcino Formation (Chubut… 

A Reappraisal of the Late Cretaceous Argentinean Sauropod Dinosaur Argyrosaurus superbus, with a Description of a New Titanosaur Genus

Argyrosaurus is redescribe, demonstrating it to be a valid titanosaur genus based on five autapomorphies, as well as an unique character combination, which provides new information on this diverse but still poorly understood clade.

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.

The anatomy, phylogenetic relationships, and stratigraphic position of the Tithonian–Berriasian Spanish sauropod dinosaur Aragosaurus ischiaticus

Phylogenetic analyses and new data on the stratigraphic age of Aragosaurus demonstrate that basal macronarian sauropods were present in Europe at the end of the Late Jurassic, alongside more derived titanosauriforms.

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

The Axial Skeleton of Rinconsaurus caudamirus (Sauropoda: Titanosauria) from the Late Cretaceous of Patagonia, Argentina

Abstract. Titanosaurs were the predominant herbivores during the Late Cretaceous, inhabiting all continents. This clade was especially diverse in South America with some of the largest and smallest

Osteology and phylogenetic relationships of Tyrannotitan chubutensis Novas, de Valais, Vickers-Rich and Rich, 2005 (Theropoda: Carcharodontosauridae) from the Lower Cretaceous of Patagonia, Argentina

A phylogenetic analysis of Carcharodontosauridae is presented that recovers Tyrannotitan as a derived carcharodsaurid, being the sister group of theClade formed by Giganotosaurus and Mapusaurus, all nested in the clade Gigansotosaurini.

ON A TITANOSAURID (DINOSAURIA, SAUROPODA) VERTEBRAL COLUMN FROM THE BAURU GROUP, LATE CRETACEOUS OF BRAZIL

A new titanosaurid dinosaur from the Late Cretaceous continental deposits of the Bauru Group is described, diagnosed by a combination of characters such as elongated cervicals and middorsals, dorsal vertebrae 9 and 10 with incipient postzygodiapophyseal lamina and transverse processes well developed throughout the sequence formed by anterior and medial caudals.

Andesaurus delgadoi gen et sp. nov. (Saurischia-Sauropoda), dinosaurio Titanosauridae de la formacion Río Limay (Albiano-Cenomaniano), Neuquen, Argentina

A good part of the postcranial skeleton of an Albian-Cenomanian primitive titanosaurid from Patagonia is described and discussed, and it is argued that the latter were endemic and very diversified, representing the major herbivorous group of the Late Cretaceous fauna of Gondwana.

A New Sauropod: Tastavinsaurus Sanzi Gen. Et Sp. Nov. from the Early Cretaceous (Aptian) of Spain

In the cladistic analysis, Tastavinsaurus is the sister-taxon of the North American Venenosaurus within Titanosauriformes, which includes the Brachiosauridae, Somphospondyli, and Titanosaurusia.

THE ANATOMY AND TAXONOMY OF CETIOSAURUS (SAURISCHIA, SAUROPODA) FROM THE MIDDLE JURASSIC OF ENGLAND

It is proposed that the generic name Cetiosaurus be retained, with C. oxoniensis as the new type species, because the two forms do not share any autapomorphies.

Redescription and reassessment of the phylogenetic affinities of euhelopus zdanskyi (Dinosauria: Sauropoda) from the early cretaceous of China

The results suggest that there were at least two clades of very long‐necked sauropods in East Asia, occurring in the Middle Jurassic (i.e. Omeisaurus + Mamenchisaurus) and Early Cretaceous (e.g. Euhelopus, Erketu), with the latter group perhaps also occurring in Europe (Canudo et al. 2002).

A NEW TITANOSAURIFORM SAUROPOD (DINOSAURIA: SAURISCHIA) FROM THE EARLY CRETACEOUS OF CENTRAL TEXAS AND ITS PHYLOGENETIC RELATIONSHIPS

The Texas sauropod does not possess synapomorphies of Somphospondyli, and derived characters that have been used to define the Titanosauria are also absent, affirming its placement as a basal titanosauriform.

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.

The last of the dinosaur titans: a new sauropod from Madagascar

A total-evidence phylogenetic analysis supports a close relationship between brachiosaurids and titanosaurs (Titanosauriformes), and the inclusion of cranial data from Rapetosaurus lays to rest questions concerning the phylogeny of the enigmatic Mongolian genera Nemegtosaurus and Quaesitosaurus.

A Re-Evaluation of Brachiosaurus altithorax Riggs 1903 (Dinosauria, Sauropoda) and Its Generic Separation from Giraffatitan brancai (Janensch 1914)

A phylogenetic analysis treating the two species as separate OTUs nevertheless recovers them as sister taxa in all most parsimonious trees, reaffirming a monophyletic Brachiosauridae, although only one additional step is required for Giraffatitan to clade among somphospondylians to the exclusion of Brachiosaurus.
