“Its length, slender proportions and particularly prominent deltopectoral crest show that it is a brachiosaurid and, among brachiosaurids, its particularly long deltopectoral crest makes it unique and diagnosable.”
“The new taxon is characterized by a plate-like medial process of the scapula, a prominent proximal expansion of the deltopectoral crest of the humerus, a strongly inclined distal articular surface of the radius, and a proximally and laterally hypertrophied proximal metacarpal I. Phylogenetic analysis recovers”
“Laterally, a prominent longitudinal ridge extends along the base of the deltopectoral crest to form the lateral margin of the humerus, is similar to the condition in”
“This relationship is supported by four unambiguous synapomorphies: height of neural arches subequal to or greater than the centrum height (Character 164: 0→1); minimum scapula width less than 20 percent its length (Character 200: 1→0); length of deltopectoral crest extends between 30 and”
“Additionally, the prominent offset proximal hook of the deltopectoral crest is autapomorphic for”
“In many basal sauropodomorph taxa, the proximal margin of the deltopectoral crest is offset sharply from the proximal articular surface; however, all other taxa lack the accompanying proximal expansion present in”
“The anterior edge of the deltopectoral crest is rugose, with a straight proximodistally directed margin.”
“The deltopectoral crest is prominent, extending anteriorly from the anterolateral edge of the humerus, and extending approximately 50% of the length of the humerus.”
“The deltopectoral crest extends less than half the length of the element, with the distal origin located proximal to the middle of the shaft.”
“Scapular blade forming a 45° angle with coracoid articulation; humeral distal condyles exposed on anterior of shaft; stout ulna; humeral deltopectoral crest markedly expanded distally; elliptical femoral mid-shaft cross-section; distal condyles of femur bevelled dorso-medially; astragalar posterior fossa undivided”
