Abdarainurus barsboldi.jpg

Abdarainurus barsboldi (meaning "Abdarain Nuru tail") is a genus of basal titanosaurid sauropod from the Late Cretaceous Alagteeg Formation of Mongolia. Its name comes from the type locality of the genus, Abdrant Nuru, which is written as Abdarain Nuru in the Russian spelling. Despite currently being classed as a basal titanosaurid, it has been suggested that Abdarainurus may be the first known member of a previously unknown lineage of Asian macronarian sauropods.
