Patagosaurus





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 (Kimmeridgian-Tithonian).

(3) Rauhut regards _Patagosaurus_ as a non-neosauropodan eusauropod.
