I think you've confused two different not-yet-named new sauropods on
DinoData. The link you provided above is to an article named "New
sauropod material from Lourinhã", and references a published paper by
Yagüe, P., Dantas, P., Ortega, E, Cachão, M., Santos, E A. M.,
Goncalves, R. and Lopes, S. Whereas the PowerPoint slides you were
directed to were my presentation to the Progressive Palaeontology
conference in Cambridge earlier this year, on an English sauropod.

Sure. The paper formally describing this has been through review and
will very very shortly be submitted in revised form. Then I guess we
plan on a two-year wait for it to actually come out :-/

... because of its being a different saurpod, of course.
