Massopoda in 2007 were made by the University of the Witwatersrand paleontologist Adam Yates, he would Massopoda is defined as: In sauropodomorpha, a close genetic relationship Saltasaurus, and All species Plateosaurus far from. However, other scientists have not generally adopted this name. In 2007, Yates will be classified as Massopoda Plateosauria. Massopoda contains Massospondylidae and Riojasauridae other subjects. Basis sauropodomorpha phylogenetics continuing study, and whether there are other Massopoda scientists, it remains to be seen.
