Chubutisaurus (meaning "Chubut lizard") is a genus of dinosaur from the Early Cretaceous Period. It lived in South America. It is classified as a sauropod, specifically one of the titanosaurs. The type species, Chubutisaurus insignis, was described by del Corro in 1975.[1] Its fossils were found in the Cerro Barcino Formation, Albian stage, about 110 million years ago.[2] Chubutisaurus had a more robust radius than Venenosaurus.[3]
