Muyelensaurus



Calvo et al. (2007) mention another new titanosaur in press:
Muyelensaurus pecheni CALVO, GONZALEZ-RIGA et PORFIRI

Perhaps is the "Loma del Lindero sp." sauropod from Rincon de Los
Sauces (north of Neuquen province)

CALVO JO, GONZÁLEZ RIGA BJ AND PORFIRI JD. In press. Muyelensaurus
pecheni gen. et sp. nov., a new titanosaur sauropod from the Late
Cretaceous of Neuquén, Patagonia, Argentina. Arquivos do Museu Nacional.

CALVO, Jorge O., PORFIRI, Juan D., GONZALEZ-RIGA, Bernardo J. * et al*. *A new Cretaceous terrestrial ecosystem from Gondwana with the description of a new sauropod dinosaur*.* An. Acad. Bras. Ci=EAnc.*, Sept. 2007, vol.79, no.3, p.529-541. ISSN 0001-3765.

A unique site at the northern area of Patagonia (Neuqu=E9n, Argentina)
reveals a terrestrial ecosystem preserved in a detail never reported
before in a Late Cretaceous deposit. An extraordinary diversity and
abundance of fossils was found concentrated in a 0.5 m horizon in the
same quarry, including a new titanosaur sauropod, *Futalognkosaurus
dukei* n.gen., n.sp, which is the most complete giant dinosaur known
so far. Several plant leaves, showing a predominance of angiosperms
over gymnosperms that likely constituted the diet of *F. dukei* were
found too. Other dinosaurs (sauropods, theropods, ornithopods),
crocodylomorphs, pterosaurs, and fishes were also discovered, allowing
a partial reconstruction of this Gondwanan continental ecosystem.
