Genera

Saturnaliinae is a clade of sauropodomorph dinosaurs found in Brazil and Zimbabwe.

In 2010, Martin Ezcurra defined the subfamily Saturnaliinae for the clade containing Saturnalia and Chromogisaurus, which were found to be close relatives in several studies.[1] While they are sometimes found to be a subgroup within the Guaibasauridae,[1] other studies have found the saturnaliines to form an independent lineage at the very base of the sauropodomorph family tree.[2]
