A commented-illustrated catalogue of non-avian dinosaurs housed at
Museo de La Plata, Argentina is presented. This represents the first
commented catalogue of the La Plata Museum dinosaurs to be published.
This includes the type material as well as Antarctic specimens. The
arrangement of the material was made in a phylogenetic fashion,
including systematic rank, type material, referred specimens,
geographic and stratigraphic location, and comments/remarks, when
necessary. A total of 13 type specimens of non-avian dinosaurs are
housed at the collection of Museo de La Plata, including eight
sauropods, one theropod, one ornithischian, and three ichnotaxa. There
are four Antarctic specimens, one of which is a holotype, whereas
other corresponds to the first sauropod dinosaur registered for that
continent.
