Nice to see some good reference material for obscure dinosaurs.

Is F7292 the same as Wintonosaurus?
The photograph of Wintonosaurus on Wikipedia includes vertebral collumn and more shoulder, as well as rib material and some pelvis, but it mentions a "QMF 10916" which consists of tail vertebrae, so the photograph could be a composite, but if you could shed some light to clear up this confusion, I'd be grateful! :D

I love these "obscure" skeletals, they are often too ignored, and I'm always glad to see artists dedicate their time and effort to them. Sadly, they are often confusing in their fragmentary nature :D

Wintonotitan (not Wintonosaurus) is known only from QMF 10916. The photograph of Wintonotitan is only of QMF 10916. So no, F7292 is not Wintonotitan, it's Austrosaurus, they just look similar and are known from the same bones, but from different specimens.

QMF 7292 has to be Wintonotitan, otherwise nothing is ;). It's the Wintonotitan holotype, QMF 10916 is really just a referred specimen.

I plan to make a skeletal reconstruction of Austrosaurus soon. I wonder how much mine will differ from yours.

Ah yes, thanks :D
I was gonna update this one to make it a composite rigorous skeletal, so this info should help :)

I'd imagine some differences, as it's clearly a fragmenty animal.
