If no rank is listed, the taxon is considered an unranked clade in modern classifications. Ranks may be repeated or presented in the wrong order because authors working on different parts of the classification may disagree about how to rank taxa.
|H.-l. You et al. 2008||Daxiatitan is a basal member of Titanosauria (definition following Upchurch et al : a stem-based taxon defined as Titanosauriforms more closely related to Saltasaurus than to Brachiosaurus) distinguished from others in having cervical vertebrae whose cranial prezygapophyseal articular facets are offset caudally such that nonarticular bone comprises the cranialmost portions of the prezygapophysis; distal margin of scapular body lies oblique relative to its long axis; femoral distal condyles beveled ~10° dorsolaterally with respect to femoral shaft; and femoral distal condyles directed caudomedially-craniolaterally in distal view.|
