Re: Saturnalia, Atlasaurus, Zupaisaurus

Hello list members,

a short time ago Ben Creisler wrote about Saturnalia tupiniquim, a 
sauropodomorph dinosaur from the Upper Triassic (Carnian) of southern Brazil.

He wrote
Saturnalia tupiniquim, is equivalent in age to the earliest dinosaurs from 
northwestern Argentine, being the oldest sauropodomorph dinosaur known from 
plentiful skeletal material.
Holotype is a well preserved, semi-articulated skeleton, including ... , left 
femur and most the right hand limb.

Is it a prosauropod and how much of the pes (mani, digits) is preserved?

Thank you and greeting from a cold Germany
