Figure 6: Comparison of sacral vertebrae of Xingxiulong chengi gen. et sp. nov. and other basal sauropodomorphs (in dorsal view).

From: A new basal sauropodiform dinosaur from the Lower Jurassic of Yunnan Province, China

Figure 6

(a) Xingxiulong chengi (four sacrals; LFGT-D0002). (b) Leonerasaurus taquetrensis, a relatively derived non-sauropodan sauropodiform (four sacrals; MPEF-PV 1663, redrawn from Pol et al.29). (c) Plateosaurus engelhardti, a non-massopod sauropodomorph (three sacrals; the holotype UEN 552, redrawn from Galton43). (d) Plateosaurus trossingensis, a non-massopod sauropodomorph (three sacrals; the holotype SMNS 13200, redrawn from Galton43). (e) Efraasia minor, a non-massopod sauropodomorph (three sacrals; SMNS 17028, redrawn from Yates44). Dashed lines represent reconstruction, slash lines represent damage, black fills represent voids within the sacrum, and grey fills represent matrix. Abbreviations: DS: dorsosacral; S1 and S2: two primordial sacrals; CS: caudosacral. Scale bars equal 10 cm.
