New dinosaur fossil discovered in Lufeng

Xinhua

Recently, while studying dinosaur fossils, archaeologists at the Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology and Paleoanthropology (IVPP) at the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) discovered a new species of sauropodi form dinosaur in Lufeng County, Chuxiong Yi Autonomous Prefecture. They called it Xingxiulong chengi.

Researchers from IVPP and the China University of Geosciences discovered the skeletons of three dinosaurs buried together. When pieced together, the bones formed an almost complete sauropodiform dinosaur. At the top of its dorsal neural spine is a laterally extending plate like platform. Its tibia has four sacral vertebrae and it also has a broad scapula. The animal’s extended pubic plate accounts for approximately 40 percent of the total length of the pubis.

After research was completed by archaeologists, it was confirmed that the dinosaur discovered in Lufeng represented a new genus of sauropodiform dinosaur. Its discovery has not only enriched the diversity of basal sauropodiform dinosaurs in the Lufeng group, but also shows that the early evolution of sauropodiform dinosaurs is more complicated than scientists previously thought.(Xinhua)
