Mosasaurs assigned to the genus Tylosaurus have been reported from the North Atlantic Circle Basin, including the Western Interior Seaway in North America and Europe, from the Turonian of Chihuahua, Mexico, to the early Maastrichtian of Belgium. The youngest record of Tylosaurus in North America is from the middle Campanian of the Pierre Shale, South Dakota. Data obtained by examination of an almost complete skull and associated postcranial elements of a large tylosaurine mosasaur from the… 

A New Hypothesis of the Phylogenetic Relationships of the Tylosaurinae (Squamata: Mosasauroidea)

The hypothesis for a North Atlantic Circle Basin distribution for species of the genus Tylosaurus from the Coniacian to the Maatrichtian is supported, and a more cosmopolitan distribution is suggested for the genus Hainosaurus/Tylosaurus neumilleri with species present along the margins of the Pacific, Indian and Antarctic Ocean Basins.

Allometric growth in the skull of Tylosaurus proriger (Squamata: Mosasauridae) and its taxonomic implications

The partial and complete skulls of two subadult individuals of the mosasaurid Tylosaurus proriger from the upper Smoky Hills Chalk Member of the Niobrara Formation in Kansas are described and an allometric analysis is included to better understand proportional changes of the skull through growth.

Climate, competition, and the rise of mosasauroid ecomorphological disparity

Mosasauroidea, prominent marine lizards (Squamata, Toxicofera) of the final 30 million years of the Cretaceous, have been extensively studied for their morphology, ecology and systematics in the past

A histological investigation of dental crown characters used in mosasaur phylogenetic analyses

Mosasaur researchers have used varieties of tooth crown ornamentation as diagnostic and phylogenetic characters for decades. Such tooth crown features include facets, flutes, striations, serrated

The iliosacral joint in lizards: an osteological and histological analysis

It is hypothesized that limited torsion of the ilium at the ISJ happens when the hip is abducted, and the joint is likely able to absorb the compressional and extensional forces related to the protraction and retraction of the femur.
