Re: Losillasaurus giganteus, a new Spanish sauropod



There is no estimation of the size of the beast in the paper.

The specimen vas a subadult, because the obturator foramen of pubis is open
and the sacrum is not completely fused.

The holotype is a complete anterior caudal vertebra, with a total height
(centrum + neural arch) of 72 cm.  The humerus length is 143 cm.

Hope this helps
