AGUSTINIA LIGABUEI
"Giancarlo Ligabue's Agustin Martinelli's One"
Bonaparte, 1999 (originally Agustia Bonaparte, 1998)
Length: 15m (50ft)
Weight: 13 tonnes (11.7 tons)
Location: Neuquen, Argentina
Era: Albian age, lower Cretaceous (108 million years ago)

Classification:
Dinosauria
Saurischia
Sauropodomorpha
Plateosauria
Massopoda
Anchisauria
Sauropoda
Neosauropoda
Macronaria
Titanosauriformes
Somphospondyli
Titanosauria

Notes:
While well known for its Stegosaur-like plates, the true nature of Agustinia is somewhat of a mystery thanks to how sparse its known remains are; the known bones indicate that it could either be a Titanosaur or Diplodocoid, both of which are known from the time and place. Current studies favor the Titanosaur interpretation.
