- noun zoology Any member of the Rebbachisauridae.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
In the British record, examples of such are the Bexhill diplodocid, Wessex Formation rebbachisaurid (see previous post on Wealden sauropods) and a large theropod from Stonesfield that is not the same thing as Megalosaurus.
So, in the Wessex Formation we have … an unusual neosauropod of uncertain affinities (Oplosaurus), definite brachiosaurids, definite titanosaurs, and a rebbachisaurid.
First rebbachisaurid dinosaur (Sauropoda, Diplodocoidea) from the early Cretaceous of Spain: palaeobiogeographical implications.
And then, finally, there are the diplodocoid teeth figured by Naish & Martill (2001) and identified by Wilson & Sereno as …. rebbachisaurid teeth!
I can’t provide the citation for the latter as I don’t yet have the paper, but the recognition of these teeth as rebbachisaurid verifies the presence of diplodocoids in the Wessex Formation.
