ABSTRACT A new ophthalmosaurid ichthyosaur, Sveltonectes insolitus, gen. et sp. nov., is described from a sub-complete and three-dimensionally preserved specimen from the late Barremian of western Russia. This new taxon is supported by 11 cranial, dental, and postcranial autapomorphies, and is also characterized by features previously considered as autapomorphic for some other Ophthalmosauridae, such as a processus narialis on the prefrontal and relatively long hind fins with pre- and… 
A new Tithonian ophthalmosaurid ichthyosaur from Coahuila in northeastern Mexico
Abstract Historically, Mexican Jurassic ichthyosaurs have been referred to European representatives of the cosmopolitan family-level clade Ophthalmosauridae. Here, we describe one of the most
A new ophthalmosaurid ichthyosaur from the Early Cretaceous of Colombia
Cretaceous ichthyosaurs were relatively diverse in temperate latitudes, but few species have been described from the palaeotropics. Here, we describe a new ophthalmosaurid ichthyosaur, Muiscasaurus
A new Lower Cretaceous ichthyosaur from Russia reveals skull shape conservatism within Ophthalmosaurinae
TLDR
The skull of a new basal ophthalmosaurine ichthyosaur, Leninia stellans gen. et sp.
New Ophthalmosaurid Ichthyosaurs from the European Lower Cretaceous Demonstrate Extensive Ichthyosaur Survival across the Jurassic–Cretaceous Boundary
TLDR
There is currently no evidence that ichthyosaurs were affected by the JCB extinction event, in contrast to many other marine groups.
A New Upper Jurassic Ophthalmosaurid Ichthyosaur from the Slottsmøya Member, Agardhfjellet Formation of Central Spitsbergen
TLDR
The paleobiogeographical implications of this result suggest the presence of a single clade of Boreal ophthalmosaurid ichthyosaurs that existed during the latest Jurassic, a pattern also reflected in the high degree of endemicity among some Boreal invertebrates, particularly ammonoids.
A new ichthyosaur from the Late Jurassic of north-west Patagonia (Argentina) and its significance for the evolution of the narial complex of the ophthalmosaurids
TLDR
It is proposed that the division of the external nares (complete or partly osseous) was related functionally to the separation of the air passage from the outlet of nasal salt glands in such a way that the salt glands could be evacuated underwater, while the air passages could be closed by a valvular system.
Acuetzpalin carranzai gen et sp. nov. A new ophthalmosauridae (Ichthyosauria) from the Upper Jurassic of Durango, North Mexico
Abstract The family Ophthalmosauridae gathers the most derived ichthyosaurs from the Middle Jurassic - earliest Late Cretaceous marine deposits of North America, South America, Asia, Europe, and
New Data on the Ichthyosaur Platypterygius hercynicus and Its Implications for the Validity of the Genus
TLDR
It is shown that all characters that have been proposed previously as autapomorphic for the genus Platypterygius are either not found in all the species currently referred to this genus, or are also present in other Ophthalmosauridae.
A new specimen of Platypterygius sachicarum (Reptilia, Ichthyosauria) from the Early Cretaceous of Colombia and its phylogenetic implications
ABSTRACT Platypterygius sachicarum is one of the few Lower Cretaceous ichthyosaurian species described from the Hauterivian–Aptian-aged Paja Formation, the most complete Lower Cretaceous sedimentary
Revision of Undorosaurus, a mysterious Late Jurassic ichthyosaur of the Boreal Realm
Recent study of ophthalmosaurid ichthyosaurs has brought us a number of new taxa; however, the validity of several ophthalmosaurid taxa from the Volgian (Tithonian) of European Russia still remains
