It's that time again, when another titanosaur makes an introduction. Today we have Jiangxititan ganzhouensis, from the late Late Cretaceous of southeastern China. As a disclaimer, I tend to reserve my judgment with East Asian titanosauriforms, who have a tendency to play coy about their phylogenetic relationships. However, J. ganzhouensis is interesting on its own terms, whether or not it is within that charmed circle of "Andesaurus delgadoi + Saltasaurus loricatus".
