I recall that the most complete "description" published so far appeared in 
Dong Zhiming's 1992 book Dinosaurs of China (Springer-Verlag). My copy of 
this item is buried right now so I can't check my memory. It's apparently 
some kind of large prosauropod, indeed on record as the largest Chinese 
prosauropod, maybe 12-13 meters long. Unfortunately, it's not dealt with in 
the Glut encyclopedias, except for a mention in Supplement 2, where it's 
listed as Sauropoda incertae sedis.
