Yes, rebbachisaurs, dicraeosaurs, and true diplodocids are included in this

Salgado et al. do not address the position of the Euhelopodidae (pity), but
(in my opinion) Upchurch has very convincingly placed them outside
Neosauropoda (= camarasaurids, brachiosaurids, titanosaurids, and diplodocoids).
