    ‘Angloposeidon’, the unreported story, part IV

  • MIWG. 7306 possesses loads of anatomical features that are also present in Brachiosaurus and Sauroposeidon, and it even shares some features that are present in Sauroposeidon and not in Brachiosaurus but, so far as we can tell, it doesn’t possess any features that are unique and thereby allow it to be reliably differentiated from all other sauropods.

  • Instead of referring to Brachiosaurus (the long-necked plant-eater that makes an early appearance on tonight's show) or Carnotaurus (the toothy, horned dinosaur that almost runs down Terra Nova's patriarch in the episode), use more generic names (brachiosaurs or abelisaurs, respectively).

  • We know that brachiosaurids such as Brachiosaurus possessed a short, small thumb claw, but Lower Cretaceous trackways apparently produced by other brachiosaurids indicate that the thumb claw was absent in these forms (it’s been suggested that the thumb claw was still present in these forms, but that it was so small that it failed to leave an impression.

  • Presumably, ‘C.’ humerocristatus was built much like better-known brachiosaurids (such as Brachiosaurus: adjacent image is Greg Paul’s old restoration of Brachiosaurus with Ceratosaurus and pterosaurs), but it was surely different in various of its details.

  • Yesterday, I finished reading "A re-evaluation of Brachiosaurus altithorax Riggs 1904 (Dinosauria, Sauropoda) and its generic separation from Giraffatitan brancai (Janenesch 1914)."
