Rauhut, O.W.M. (2003). A dentary of _Patagosaurus_ (Sauropoda) from the
Middle Jurassic of Patagonia. Ameghiniana 40(3): 425-432.
A few interesting tidbits...
(1) Among the material referred to _Patagosaurus_ by Bonaparte (1986) is a
partial skeleton that pertains to a new sauropod taxon. This taxon differs
from _Patagosaurus_ in features of the teeth, dorsal vertebrae, and ilium,
and will be described by Rauhut at a later date. Thus, there are three
known Canadon Asfalto Formation sauropods: _Patagosaurus_, _Volkheimeria_,
and the new taxon.
(2) The sauropod _Tehuelchesaurus_, which was originally described as
hailing from the Canadon Asfalto Formation (Callovian; Rich et al., 1999),
actually comes from the younger Canadon Calcareo Formation
(3) Rauhut regards _Patagosaurus_ as a non-neosauropodan eusauropod.
