ABSTRACT We describe a new species of Lower Jurassic (Hettangian/Sinemurian—Pliensbachian) ichthyosaur, Ichthyosaurus anningae, sp. nov., from west Dorset, England, U.K. The holotype of I. anningae (DONMG:1983.98), at least a subadult, is from the lower Pliensbachian Stonebarrow Marl Member (Charmouth Mudstone Formation). It is the most complete ichthyosaur known from this time interval worldwide. The species is assigned to Ichthyosaurus on the basis of humerus, forefin, and pectoral girdle… 
Two new species of Ichthyosaurus from the lowermost Jurassic (Hettangian) of Somerset, England
TLDR
Two new species of Ichthyosaurus are recognized from multiple specimens, supported by a phylogenetic analysis which finds the new species more closely related to each other than to other species of the genus.
On the largest Ichthyosaurus: A new specimen of Ichthyosaurus somersetensis containing an embryo
A formerly undescribed Ichthyosaurus specimen from the collection of the Niedersächsisches Landesmuseum (Lower Saxony State Museum) in Hannover, Germany, provides valuable new information. The

A new leptonectid ichthyosaur is described, Wahlisaurus massarae gen. et sp.
The first known neonate Ichthyosaurus communis skeleton: a rediscovered specimen from the Lower Jurassic, UK
TLDR
This is the first neonate Ichthyosaurus communis skeleton to be described and a microfossil analysis of the matrix in which the ichthyosaur skeleton is preserved strongly suggests a stratigraphic range of uppermost Hettangian to lowermost Sinemurian age (Lower Jurassic).
A fresh look at the genus Ichthyosaurus: species characteristics, morphometrics, and phylogeny
TLDR
To better understand the current breadth of the species Ichthyosaurus, multiple morphometric and phylogenetic studies were performed with a starting dataset of over 320 specimens and 66 different measurements, showing that there is a larger amount of diversity than originally thought.
A LARGE FOREFIN OF ICHTHYOSAURUS FROM THE U.K., AND ESTIMATES OF THE SIZE RANGE OF THE GENUS
A large partial forefin (YORYM 2005.2411) from the Lower Jurassic of Yorkshire is assigned to Ichthyosaurus on the basis of the humerus shape, two digits originating from the intermedium, and an
A New Ophthalmosaurid (Ichthyosauria) from Svalbard, Norway, and Evolution of the Ichthyopterygian Pelvic Girdle
TLDR
The Slottsmøya Member Lagerstätte ichthyosaurs are significant in that they represent a diverse assemblage of ophthalmosaurids that existed immediately preceding and across the Jurassic–Cretaceous boundary, and expand the known range in size variation of pelvic girdle elements in the clade.
Hindfins of Ichthyosaurus: effects of large sample size on ‘distinct’ morphological characters
TLDR
In Ichthyosaurus, the hindfin is taxonomically useful at the genus level, but species cannot be identified unequivocally from a well-preserved hindfin, although certain morphologies are more common in certain species than others.
A taxonomic reassessment of Ichthyosaurus communis and I. intermedius and a revised diagnosis for the genus
Ichthyosaurus communis De la Beche & Conybeare, 1821 and I. intermedius Conybeare, 1822 have been considered synonymous by some researchers, but distinct species by others. The distinction between

An Ichthyosaurus breviceps collected by Mary Anning: new information on the species
TLDR
The specimen is identified as Ichthyosaurus based on the morphology of the humerus and forefin and assigned to I. breviceps on the basis of the relatively short snout, large eye, and tall neural spines.
Postcranial Anatomy of Platypterygius americanus (Reptilia: Ichthyosauria) from the Cretaceous of Wyoming
TLDR
Comparative assessment suggests that Platypterygius americanus is a valid taxon, and that it is possible to differentiate the various Platyperygius spp.
First Diagnostic Marine Reptile Remains from the Aalenian (Middle Jurassic): A New Ichthyosaur from Southwestern Germany
TLDR
A new species of ichthyosaur is described based on a partial articulated specimen from the Middle Jurassic of southwestern Germany that bears numerous similarities in size and in morphology to the Lower Jurassic species of the genus Stenopterygius and provides additional evidence that the major ecological changes hypothesized to have occurred at the end of the Toarcian took place sometime after this point and most likely did not occur suddenly.
Temnodontosaurus risor is a juvenile of T. platyodon (Reptilia: Ichthyosauria)
TLDR
An almost complete, three-dimensionally preserved skeleton was recently found which can be identified as T. risor, which is like T. platyodon but differs in having a slightly larger orbit, smaller maxilla, and a curved snout.

THE TAXONOMIC AND PHYLOGENETIC POSITION OF THE PLESIOSAUROIDEA FROM THE LOWER JURASSIC POSIDONIA SHALE OF SOUTH‐WEST GERMANY
TLDR
Two plesiosauroid species from the Posidonia shale of Holzmaden do not belong to Plesiosaurus but form new monotypic genera, and a short phylogenetic analysis shows that S. guilelmiimperatoris and Muraenosaurus are basal elasmosaurs.
