New sauropodomorph species found in Utah

Ian Randall | 1st April 2010

A partial skeleton of a new species of long necked, herbivorous dinosaur which lived 185 million years ago has been found among the red rocks of Utah. The find, which is reported in a recent edition of PLoS ONE by palaeontologists from the Universities of Stony Brook and Utah, along with the Utah Museum of Natural History, establishes the prevalence of sauropodomorph dinosaurs during the early Jurassic.
