It is a fairly new (last 5 years) discovery.
A couple of the early to mid Jurassic Cetiosaurids from China have
been found to have tail clubs. In fact, the tail club of Shunosaurus
was, I believe, first identified as an ankylosaur. This feature
seems to be quite restricted, and is definately *not* found in any
of the better-known sauropods from the US.
The peace of God be with you.
