Y. Azuma and M. Shibata 2010A basal titanosauriform sharing the following characters: the asymmetric tooth crown elongated with a weak or absent labial groove and without lingual concavity; the epipophysis of the cervical vertebrae developed and stalk-like; the transverse width of the proximal end of the humerus approximately 32% of the humerus length; metacarpal longer, approximately 48% of the radius; distal end of the ischia slightly expanded.
