Camelotia (meaning "from Camelot") was a genus of sauropodomorph dinosaur from the Late Triassic tp the Early Jurassic, from the Rhaetian stage of the Late Triassic to Hettangian stage of the Early Jurassic, what is now England. Paleontologists are divided on which family it may belong to; in the past, Camelotia has generally been assigned to the prosauropods, but this group of primitive dinosaurs is in constant flux. The genus is now considered a member of the family Melanorosauridae, who includes the first true giant herbivorous dinosaurs.
