Lourinha Formation paleobiota[edit]

Hi Capra. I am currently working on an illustration of the Lourinha Formation including the dinosaurs Dinheirosaurus lourinhanensis, Torvosaurus gurneyi, Allosaurus europaeus, Draconyx loureiroi, and Lusotitan atalaiensis. I am not asking for your critique on this, as I will post it on the image review page once the pencil version is done, but I was wondering what other organisms (plants, mammals, other dinosaurs) should be added to the image. An extremely bad image of this so far can be found here (note, the actual image is reversed). The Lusotitan and Draconyx, in successive order from right closer to left farther (on the real image). Are there any taxa to add to the image, or any minor comments at this stage? Just wondering, but is a collaboration between us on the Lourinha page and taxa possible, although noting that I will be on vacation from the 13th to the 21st, because some genera, like Dinheirosaurus, are actually quite close to being good articles soon?

Ah, I have now also put online a newer version of my current illustration, although the resolution is still crappy. The link is here. IJReid (talk) 02:45, 7 August 2014 (UTC)
Ok. As for notes on the current state, perhaps adding one or two more Lusotitan behind the current one, representing a small herd, as opposed to a loner. Adding another Draconyx with the current one as well. The only other thing I would think to change about the current creatures would be that the living Torvosaurus would be looking up at the Dinheirosaurus as opposed to tending to it's dead/dying relative (Sibling? Parent? Mate?). As for other taxa, I'd try not to overcrowd the image, so maybe some Dryosaurus, and a Miragaia or Dacentrurus. Also, it may be odd to have the Allosaurus and Torvosaurus attacking the same sauropod, so maybe have the Allosaurus attacking Dryosaurus or Miragaia/Dacentrurus mentioned above. Just some ideas thought. As for non-dinosaurs and plants, I've not gotten to the point of researching Lourinha Formation flora or non-dinosaur fauna yet, so I'm not sure. I'll have to get back to you on that, thought ferns and generic conifers are a safe bet for now.
As for collaboration, I'm open to the idea. Perhaps you could more work on the taxa pages, to avoid any edit conflicts. First thing that needs attending to, I don't think the Richardoestesia page makes any mention that Jurassic Portuguese material from various formations has been assigned to it, so make mention of that, thought note that the identification is tentative and the teeth probably don't belong to it but an unknown relative. Don't bother with the Deltapodus page thought, I plan on re-doing (i.e. essentially writing.) that page after I finish with Lourinha anyway. All references in the article are open access papers except 1 and 3, and the addtional references section, so there should be plenty of sources to go off of. Thought if you can find any more open access refs for Lusotitan or Lourinhasaurus that would be greatly appreciated.
Also, FYI, I've had a username change from Capra walie to Lusotitan.
Thanks. Lusotitan (talk) 14:28, 7 August 2014 (UTC)
Hi again Luso. I have updated the image again, and again, when using my webcam the image appeared with a crappy resolution. The link is here. I have taken some of your requests into consideration, and have some comments on them. I haven't yet added more Lusotitan, Draconyx, or other ornithischians, but I think the Ornithischians will be in a herd together, as suggested by the paired footprints of ornithopods and stegosaurs. I think I will keep the theropods as they are, because what if the Allosaurus was attacking the Dinheirosaurus, which made the Dinheirosaurus rear up, an then the sauropod mistook some passing Torvosaurus as attacking, so it squished one of them. The Torvosaurus doesn't want to become aggressive with the Dinheirosaurus, as the Allosaurus is stronger, more powerful, larger, and bulkier than it, and it wouldn't end well for the Torvosaurus. On the left side of my image is a broken tree trunk with a pterosaur walking along it. I will say the pterosaur is Harpactognathus, which is found in the Morrison, so it is possible its range included Portugal. The pterosaur will be waiting for a partially exposed lizard to come fully out of the log to eat it. I have also added another tree that is possible to have existed in the Lourinha Formation behind the will be herd of ornithischians. I will start our collaboration as soon as the pencil image is done and I have completed User:Reid,iain james/Draft:Parasaurolophus, which you can help on as well. Bye for now, IJReid (talk) 15:06, 7 August 2014 (UTC)
Torvosaurus guryeni is actually larger then Allosaurus europaeus, but I assume these are not full grown then, so no problem I guess. However, I have thought of, not a problem, but an idea. Replacing the Dinheirosaurus with a Zby. As it is currently, all of the fauna have very close relatives in the Morrison. And although it is correct the two formations are very similar, including in fauna, there are differences. The two big faunal differences that come to mind are the lack of low browsing sauropods (Maybe. Complicated issue.) and the presence of a turiasaur. Having a Miragaia and Zby will do a great job at representing that the formation is unique. Just an idea.Lusotitan (talk) 16:53, 7 August 2014 (UTC)
