Shuangbaisaurus anlongbaoensis

(Shuangbai lizard from Anlongbao)Etymology
Shuangbaisaurus is derived from "Shuangbai" (the Chinese county—established in the West Han Dynasty [AD 109]—where it was found) and the Greek "sauros" (lizard).
The species epithet, anlongbaoensis, is derived from "Anlongbao" (the town—meaning dragon-placing fort—where the holotype was recovered) and the Latin "ensis" (from).
Discovery
The remains of Shuangbaisaurus were discovered in dark purple muddy siltstones in the lower part of the Fengjiahe Formation (Chuxiong Basin) at Liuna Village, Anlongbao Town, Shuangbai County, Chuxiong Yi Autonomous Prefecture, Yunnan Province, China.
The holotype (CPM C2140ZA245) is a partial skull with lower jaw.
