<< Question: Which name has priority, Mamenchisauridae or Euhelopidae? >>

Euhelopodidae, coined by Kuhn in 1965 but originally authored as Euhelopodinae
by Romer in 1956 (which is the date of the taxon for purposes of priority),
has unambiguous priority over Mamenchisauridae, created by Young & Chao in
1972 (in the description of _Mamenchisaurus hochuanensis_).
