Abstract

A new genus and species of Aptian sauropod, from the Lohan Cura Formation, is briefly described. It is based on an incomplete sequence of fragmentary dorsal, sacral, and caudal vertebrae, a tibia, a fibula, left metatarsals, and osteoderms, representing four morfo-types. The peculiar morphology of the osteoderms and of the top of the neural spines where the osteoderms were fixed, is considered sufficient characters to support setting up a new family of the Sauropoda the Agustinidae nov.
