New Ophthalmosaurid Ichthyosaurs from the European Lower Cretaceous Demonstrate Extensive Ichthyosaur Survival across the Jurassic–Cretaceous Boundary
There is currently no evidence that ichthyosaurs were affected by the JCB extinction event, in contrast to many other marine groups.
Phylogeny, systematics, and origin of the Ichthyosauria - the state of the art
- M. Maisch
At the present state of knowledege, a defi nite decision on the origin and phylogenetic position of ichthyosaurs is still impossible, but descent from primarily anapsid ancestors and an origin from among the Parareptilia can not be excluded as an alternative to a diapsid origin of the group.

A NEW TRITYLODONTID FROM THE UPPER JURASSIC SHISHUGOU FORMATION OF THE JUNGGAR BASIN (XINJIANG, NW CHINA)
Abstract A new tritylodontid cynodont, Bienotheroides ultimus sp. nov., is described from the Upper Jurassic Shishugou Formation of Jiangjunmiao in the northeastern Junggar Basin of Xinjiang (NW…
Evidence for the longest stratigraphic range of a post-Triassic Ichthyosaur: a Leptonectes tenuirostris from the Pliensbachian (Lower Jurassic) of Switzerland
Abstract A three-dimensional well-preserved ichthyosaur skull and parts of the postcranial skeleton are attributed to the species Leptonectes tenuirostris (Conybeare, 1822). It was found vertically…
A NEW MIXOSAURID ICHTHYOSAUR FROM THE MIDDLE TRIASSIC OF CHINA
The holotype of Mixosaurus mao- taiensis, which is very fragmentary and has no taxonomic value at the species level, is found to be undiagnostic, and hence the lately introduced, monospecific genus name for this species needs to be abandoned.
A new basal sinemydid turtle (Reptilia: Testudines) from the Lower Cretaceous Tugulu Group of the Junggar Basin (NW China)
A new Xinjiangchelyid turtle (Testudines, Eucryptodira) from the Jurassic Qigu Formation of the southern Junggar Basin, Xinjiang, north‐west China
A new eucryptodiran turtle, Xinjiangchelys qiguensis sp. nov. from the Upper Jurassic (Oxfordian — ?Kimmeridgian) Qigu Formation of the southern Junggar Basin (north-west China) is described. The…
The skull of a large Lower Triassic ichthyosaur from Spitzbergen and its implications for the origin of the Ichthyosauria
An incomplete ichthyosaur skull from the Lower Triassic (Spathian) Sticky Keep Formation of Spitzbergen is one of the earliest ichthyosaurs known and by far the largest of the most basal…
