Morphology of a specimen of Supersaurus (Dinosauria, Sauropoda) from the Morrison Formation of Wyoming, and a re-evaluation of diplodocid phylogeny
A new specimen of Supersaurus vivianae is described, providing additional information about the osteology of Supersaurus. The single Supersaurus individual that the WDC quarry produced allows a re-
A new paravian dinosaur from the Late Jurassic of North America supports a late acquisition of avian flight
TLDR
All parsimonious results support the hypothesis that each early paravian clade was plesiomorphically flightless, raising the possibility that avian flight originated as late as the Late Jurassic or Early Cretaceous.

Current Taxonomic Status of the Plesiosaur Pantasaurus Striatus from the Upper Jurassic Sundance Formation, Wyoming

Ekalakia (Decapoda: Brachyura): The Preservation of Eyes Links Cretaceous Crabs to Jurassic Ancestors
TLDR
The extraordinarily large eyes relative to body size suggests that the Jurassic reef-dwelling crabs were adapted for a cryptic lifestyle which preadapted them for the deep-water, dysphotic, level-bottom habitat occupied by the Cretaceous descendants.
