Early Jurassic palaeopolar marine reptiles of Siberia

Marine reptile occurrences are rare in the Lower Jurassic Series outside of Europe. Here we describe diverse marine reptile faunas from the Lower Jurassic Series (Pliensbachian and Toarcian stages,



The northernmost occurrence of Prognathodon (Squamata: Mosasauridae) from the Western Interior Seaway of North America

The marine reptile Prognathodon (Squamata: Mosasauridae), a mosasaurine mosasaur exhibiting a characteristically robust skull and dentition, lived during the last two ages of the Late Cretaceous.

Marine Reptiles (Plesiosauria and Mosasauridae) from the Puskwaskau Formation (Santonian–Campanian), West-Central Alberta

Abstract Plesiosaurs and mosasaurs are identified from the Puskwaskau Formation of west-central Alberta, Canada. These deposits record the final stages during which the Western Interior Seaway

A Basal Mosasauroid from the Campanian (Upper Cretaceous) of Hokkaido, Northern Japan

Abstract. A basal mosasauroid specimen, including a rib and a vertebra from the middle to posterior portion of the trunk, is reported from the lower Campanian Inoceramus (Platyceramus) japonicus

A mosasaur from the Cenomanian of Russia

The premaxilla of a mosasauroid lizard from the Lysaya Gora 3 locality in Saratov (Upper Cretaceous, Cenomanian) is described. To date, the oldest known mosasaur remains have been dated Turonian. The

Marine reptiles from the Nanaimo Group (Upper Cretaceous) of Vancouver Island

A new fauna of fossil marine reptiles is described from the Late Cretaceous Nanaimo Group of Vancouver Island. The fossils are from the Haslam and Pender formations (upper Santonian) near Courtenay,

A New Species Of Taniwhasaurus (Mosasauridae, Tylosaurinae) From The Upper Santonian-Lower Campanian (Upper Cretaceous) Of Hokkaido, Japan

Abstract A new species of the basal tylosaurine mosasaur Taniwhasaurus, is described from materials collected from upper Santonian-lower Campanian marine clastics outcropping near Mikasa City, Island

Endothermic mosasaurs? Possible thermoregulation of Late Cretaceous mosasaurs (Reptilia, Squamata) indicated by stable oxygen isotopes in fossil bioapatite in comparison with coeval marine fish and pelagic seabirds

Although there are small differences of body temperature among mosasaur genera, these are independent of size, and thus inferred body mass, suggesting that mosasaurs were not gigantotherms, but rather endotherms.

Campanian and Maastrichtian mosasaurs from Antarctic Peninsula and Patagonia, Argentina

Mosasaurs from Antarctica have been recovered from the late Campanian and early and late Maastrichtian in James Ross, Vega and Seymour Islands within the James Ross basin. Tylosaurinae are
