Camarasauridae

camarasauridMorosauridaeCamarasaur
Macronaria is composed of several subclades and families notably including Camarasauridae and Titanosauriformes, among several others. Previously, this clade was thought to have Brachiosaurus and Camarasauridae forming one sister group, and Titanosauroidea and Diplodocoidea forming another.
Camarasauridae (meaning "chambered lizards") is a family of neosauropod dinosaurs within the clade Macronaria, the sister group to Titanosauriformes.

Neosauropoda

neosauropodneosauropods
Macronaria was described by Wilson and Sereno who proposed the new subdivisions among the clade Neosauropoda.
The group is composed of two subgroups: Diplodocoidea and Macronaria.

Sauropoda

sauropodsauropodseusauropod
Like other sauropods, they are known to have inhabited primarily terrestrial areas, and little evidence exists to suggest that they spent much time in coastal environments.
Henderson showed that such trackways can be explained by sauropods with long forelimbs (such as macronarians) floating in relatively shallow water deep enough to keep the shorter hind legs free of the bottom, and using the front limbs to punt forward.

Titanosauria

Macronaria is composed of several subclades and families notably including Camarasauridae and Titanosauriformes, among several others. Previously, this clade was thought to have Brachiosaurus and Camarasauridae forming one sister group, and Titanosauroidea and Diplodocoidea forming another.
Together with the brachiosaurids and relatives, titanosaurs make up the larger clade Titanosauriformes.

Abrosaurus

Abrosaurus ('delicate lizard' from the Greek αβρος meaning 'delicate' or 'dainty' and σαυρος meaning 'lizard') is a genus of macronarian sauropod dinosaur from the Middle Jurassic Period of what is now Asia, one of many dinosaurs found at the Dashanpu Quarry in the Sichuan Province of China.

Saltasauridae

saltasauridSaltasauridae indet.saltasaurids
The species that survived late into the Cretaceous were characterized by stocky, wide-gauged posture, most notably the highly derived saltasaurines.
Most sauropods are from the clade Neosauropoda, which is further split into the narrow-toothed Diplodocoidea and the broad-toothed Macronaria.

Haestasaurus

Fukuititan is a genus of titanosauriform sauropod dinosaur that lived in the Early Cretaceous (either Barremian or Aptian age) in what is now Japan.

Dongbeititan

Its describers suggested it was as a basal titanosauriform, not as derived as Gobititan or Jiutaisaurus, but more derived than Euhelopus, Fusuisaurus, and Huanghetitan.

The metacarpals were concluded to belong to some indeterminate titanosauriform.
