Location: England - Hastings Beds Group
Size: Uncertain due to lack of fossil remains, however, humerus is recorded as being 59.9 centimetres long, ulna, 42.1 centimetres long and radius 40.4 centimetres long. Using more complete genera such as Camarasaurus results in a reconstructed length of about 6.5 meters long, though this is just a best guess
