Temporal range: Early Jurassic, 196-190 Ma

Etymology: Lamplugh's reptile from the Dharmaram Formation

Lamplughsaura is a genus of saurischian dinosaur from the Sinemurian-age (Early Jurassic) Dharmaram Formation of India, between 196 to 190 million years ago. The type species is L. dharmaramensis. It is known from several partial skeletons of a large quadrupedal animal up to 10 metres long, and was either a basal sauropod or, less likely, a more basal sauropodomorph.

It was named after Pamela Lamplugh, founder of the Indian Statistical Institute.

Nice work on this one, I haven't even hear of it until now. Prosauropods and basal sauropods need more attention I think.
