Anabisetia saldiviai

(for Biset and Saldivia)Etymology
Anabisetia honors the late Dr. Ana Biset, an influential archeologist from Neuquén Province in Argentina, where the remains of this animal were found. The species epithet, saldiviai, is named after Roberto Saldivia (see discovery).
Discovery
The remains of Anabisetia were discovered at Cerro Bayo Mesa, south of Plaza Huincul in the Cerro Lisandro Formation, Rio Limay subgroup, Neuquén Group, Neuquén Province, Argentina, by local farmer Roberto Saldivia in 1993. The holotype (MCF-PVPH 74, housed at the Museo Carmen Funes) is a partial skeleton and skull fragments. Three other, less complete specimens are known which between them pretty much account for all of the bits that are missing from the holotype, apart from the skull.
