A Spanish-Argentine collaboration has identified a previously undiscovered species of dinosaur in Neuquén, Patagonia, which would have lived over 110 million years ago.

The new dinosaur belongs to the family of Rebbachisauridae, a type of herbivorous quadruped. The fossils discovered were that of an adult of around 10 to 12 meters as well as two young that would have been between six and seven meters long. The Independent reported it was likely the dinosaurs ate leaves and grass, and they traveled and died together.

“We found most of the cranial bones: the snout, the jaws, a lot of teeth, also the bones that define the eye sockets for example and, in that way, we were able to create an almost complete reconstruction,” Jose Luis Carballido, a researcher at the Egidio Feruglio museum told Agence France Presse. “Not only is this the discovery of a new species in an area where you wouldn’t expect to find fossils, but the skull is almost complete.”

The area of Neuquén 110 million years ago was purported to have been a desert, meaning most thought it was unlikely fossils would be found in the region.

The new species have been named Lavocatisaurus and, according to Clarin, is dedicated to French Paleontologist René Lavocat, who discovered the first Rebbachisauridae dinosaur in the Sahara desert in the 1950s. The adult dinosaur has also been dubbed Alfredito, after the Uruguayan singer Alfredo Zitarrosa.

Rebbachisauridae have been discovered in Europe and Africa, and this recent discovery on the South American continent further backs the theory that these continents were linked together millions of years ago.

The fossils are now in the Olsacher Museum of Natural Sciences in Zapala, Neuquén.
