The osteology of Pilmatueia faundezi Coria, Windholz, Ortega & Currie, 2019, a dicraeosaurid sauropod from the Lower Cretaceous of Patagonia, is reassessed from the perspective of a new specimen (MLL-Pv-010) that provides additional information on the axial skeleton and the pectoral girdle. The specimen MLL-Pv-010 is composed of three articulated a...

The diversity of the Upper Cretaceous (Cenomanian to Maastrichtian) crocodyliforms in Argentina is represented by several families of notosuchians (Notosuchidae, Comahuesuchidae, Baurusuchidae, Peirosauridae), and basal mesoeucrocodylian taxa. Most species (such as Neuquensuchus universitas, Notosuchus terrestris, Comahuesuchus brachybuccalis, Cyno...
Article
The Lohan Cura Formation (Albian) at the Cerro de los Leones locality (Neuquén Province, Patagonia, Argentina) yielded several fossil materials, especially sauropod specimens. Among these, Agustinia ligabuei includes postcranial elements of a single individual, with widely debated taxonomy and phylogeny. Here, we provide an extended osteological de...
Article
Abelisaurids are medium–large-sized theropod dinosaurs that were predominant in the carnivorous fauna during the Late Cretaceous of Gondwana. These predators are abundant in the Cretaceous fossil strata of Patagonia, which yield the best record for this group. In the Late Cretaceous, abelisaurids appear in almost all regions of Gondwana and in all...

In the central Neuquén Basin, the Huincul Formation comprises thick successions of Upper Cretaceous fluvial deposits widely exposed at the south and north-west of Huincul High. The vertebrate fossil record from the Huincul Formation is very abundant, especially considering the saurischian dinosaurs, including several theropod (Mapusaurus, Taurovena...
Chapter
Although the origin of Neosauropoda probably dates back to the Early–Middle Jurassic, it is not until the Late Jurassic that Macronaria become well represented in the fossil record. Unlike the great diversity of South American titanosaurs, basal macronarians are relatively scarce in the fossil record; even so, they provide valuable information for...
Article
Osteological knowledge of the sauropod dinosaur Ligabuesaurus leanzai is increased by the description of new postcranial elements assigned to the holotype MCF-PVPH-233. Furthermore, a newly referred specimen, MCF-PVPH-228, is recognized after a detailed revision of the abundant sauropod material collected from the Lohan Cura Formation outcrops in t...
Article
In the Neuquén Basin, the Portezuelo Formation (Turonian-Coniacian, Upper Cretaceous) is represented by extended fluvial outcrops that are well-known for yielding an abundant and diversified vertebrate fossil record. However, most of the sauropod fossil record is represented by incomplete specimens, and only two taxa are formally described for the...
Article
Bite marks in non-avian dinosaur fossil records can constitute the best evidence of predator-prey interactions even if they are uncommon, ambiguous, or of uncertain origin. In this contribution, we present new evidence of feeding traces on an isolated sauropod element from Bajo de la Carpa Formation outcrops (Upper Cretaceous, Santonian), northern...
Article
Dicraeosauridae is a family of small body-sized sauropod dinosaurs that diversified from the Middle Jurassic to the Lower Cretaceous, whose distinctive feature is a long dorsally projected, bifid neural spines in most of the presacral vertebrae. The dicraeosaurid fossil record is limited to few taxa, therefore each new finding, however fragmentary,...
Article
In this contribution, we present the first pterosaur post-cranial bone from the Lohan Cura Formation (Albian) of the Cerro de los Leones locality (Picún Leufú, Neuquén Province). The material is an incomplete left ulna, preserved in three dimensions, and composed of the proximal epiphysis and part of the diaphysis. The element shares several affini...

Purpose: New sauropod remains (MCF-PVPH-889, MCF-PVPH-899, and MCF-PVPH-900) collected from the Plottier Fm (Coniacian–Santonian) in the south-west of the Neuquén Basin, are here reported. The materials proceed from a fluvial outcrop composed by siltstone and fine sandstone, whose fossil record is known for large-sized sauropod taxa. Methods: Due t...

Field works on terrestrial sediments of the Mulichinco Formation at Pilmatué locality, 9 km north from Las Lajas, Neuquén, permitted the collection of dinosaur remains from different taxa, of which the dicraeosaurid sauropods seem to be the most abundantly represented form. The materials correspond to postcranial elements, representing different se...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
A new association of continental vertebrate remains found in the lower section of the Mulichinco Formation (Valanginian), 10 km north of Las Lajas, are focus of taphonomic studies. The facies associations correspond to the deposit of fluvial channel, with lateral migration bars and scarce development of floodplains. The fossils are found in a tabul...
Article
Full-text available
Agustinia ligabuei is an Early Cretaceous sauropod dinosaur from the northwest of Patagonia that is currently the topic of debate with respect to its phylogenetic position and atypical dermal armor. The presence of four morphotypes of laminar and transversely elongated putative osteoderms was used to consider Agustinia as an armored sauropod. Regar...
