project: DINOSAURIA
specimen 065

YANGCHUANOSAURUS SHANGYOUENSIS
"Shangyou Reservoir Lizard from Yongchuan"
Dong et al., 1978
Length: 10.6m (35ft)
Weight: 3.4 tonnes (3.7 tons)
Location: Sichuan, China
Era: Oxfordian age, upper Jurassic (155 million years ago)

Tetanurae
Avetheropoda
Carnosauria
Metriacanthosauridae

Notes:
Yanchuanosaurus was briefly considered to be a species of the lesser known genus Metriacanthosaurus in the late eighties by Gregory S. Paul, which may explain why the name of a dinosaur as obscure as Metriacanthosaurus can be prominently seen on an embryo vial in the film Jurassic Park.
