Reptilia - Saltasauridae
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.
|L. S. Filippi et al. 2011||Large sauropod dinosaur characterized by the following combination of derived features: 1) accessory posterior centrodiapophyseal lamina more developed than the posterior centrodiapophyseal lamina; 2) posterior centroparapophyseal lamina extends from the point of contact with the accessory posterior centrodiapophyseal lamina; 3) presence of a broad concave surface delimited by the bony rim of the posterior centroparapophyseal lamina and a rim located on the dorsal edge of the pleurocoel; 4) presence of a deep fossa, sub-circular in outline, on a slightly concave surface delimited by the accessory posterior centrodiapophyseal lamina, the posterior centrodiapophyseal lamina, and a bony rim corresponding to the extension of the posterior centroparapophyseal lamina; 5) presence of a T-shaped anteroposterior expansion on the laminae of the neural arch (pcdl and apcdl); and the anterior caudal vertebrae characterized by: 6) the presence of a deep fossa between the spinoprezygapophyseal lamina and the postzygapophysis, bearing small fossae; 7) prespinal lamina distally thickened; 8) sub-circular small fossae on both sides of the base of the prespinal lamina; and 9) presence of a T-shaped anteroposterior expansion in the spinoprezygapophyseal lamina.|
