Hasta hace bien poco, en las introducciones de cualquier artículo descriptivo sobre material craneal de saurópodos titanosaurios una de las primeras frases que se podían leer era (a grandes rasgos y con sus variaciones): “Los titanosaurios fueron los saurópodos con más éxito del Cretácico. Sin embargo, se conocen gracias a sus restos postcraneales y dientes, ya que los craneales son pocos y

This will be all too short, but I can’t let the publication of a new giant sauropod pass unremarked. Yesterday Bernardo González Riga and colleagues published a nice, detailed paper describing Notocolossus gonzalezparejasi, “Dr. Jorge González Parejas’s southern giant”, a new titanosaur from the Late Cretaceous of Mendoza Province, Argentina (González Riga et al. 2016).

Já não é propriamente novidade, Dreadnoughtus schrani foi um dos titanosáurios descobertos ao largo do ano de 2014. Este estudo foi liderado por Kenneth J. Lacovara, no qual se sumaram mais 16 autores, e teve como objectivo a breve descrição num dos maiores saurópodes encontrados no Cretácico. Esta descoberta vem assim aumentar a diversidade (que já não é pequena) de saurópodes
