is a genus of sauropod
dinosaur that lived in China during the mid
Jurassic. Unfortunately, because only a couple of forelimb bones have
been used to describe the genus, not much can be said about this
dinosaur. The describers were of the opinion that Huangshanlong
repesented a mamenchisaurid sauropod, a type of sauropod that would
have had a proportionately long neck (even by sauropod standards), and
a type which was also quite common in China at this stage in the
Huangshanlong is is the second dinosaur genus discovered to have once lived in what is now Anhui Province, the first being the pachycephalosaur Wannanosaurus in 1977.
