"Yizhousaurus" is an informally named genus of basal sauropod dinosaurs which existed in what is now Lower Lufeng Formation, Yunnan Province of southern China during the lower Jurassic period.[1] Identified from a nearly complete and exquisitely preserved skeleton, it is the most complete basal sauropod currently known with intact skull.[1] It was first named by Sankar Chatterjee, T. Wang, S.G. Pan, Z. Dong, X.C. Wu, and Paul Upchurch in 2010 and the intended type species is Yizhousaurus sunae.[1]
