Re: Mongolian Strata
1) What is the currently accepted definition of the Euhelopodidae, and
what does it contain? Where does it lie in the dinosaur family tree.
After reading Macintosh's article in _The Dinosauria_, I was pretty well
convinced that the Euhelopodidae were an unnatural assemblage of Chinese
sauropods, all of which had developed parallel adaptations for feeding at
the tops of trees, containing:
_Euhelopus_, a camarasaurid;
_Omeisaurus_, a shunosaurid related to _Datousaurus_;
and _Mamenchisaurus_, between the Shunosauridae and the Diplodocidae.
Have any of these been re-united into a larger Euhelopodidae?
2) What _is_ the big-nosed Mongolian iguanodontid?
Any help appreciated.
