Although choristoderes have a good Lower Cretaceous record in Asia, they have never previously been recorded from Jurassic deposits. Here we describe fragmentary vertebral material referable to Choristodera indet. from the Middle Jurassic Balabansai Svita of the Fergana Valley, Kyrgyzstan. This provides a significant range extension for the group in Asia and shows that choristoderes already had a Pan-Laurasian distribution in the Jurassic. 
Late Jurassic Squamata and possible Choristodera from the Junggar Basin, Xinjiang, Northwest China
Screen washing at the Liuhuanggou locality, a fossiliferous bone bed within the early Late Jurassic Qigu Formation, 40 km southwest of the city of Urumqi, yielded two lizard jaw fragments with teeth
On a record of choristoderes (Diapsida, Choristodera) from the Lower Cretaceous of Western Siberia
TLDR
The Choristodera indet from Shestakovo is characterized by primitive vertebral features combined with the presence of dentin folds at the tooth bases (advanced character typical of neochoristoderes).

TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis places the new Japanese form in a small clade with Cteniogenys and the Triassic Pachystropheus, which is the sister taxon of crown-group Neochoristodera.

TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis with the addition of data from the new specimen confirms the basal position of Tchoiria in Simoedosauridae and provides new information about the genus.

TLDR
It is the first vertebrate taxon from the Toutunhe Formation that is probably not endemic and lends some support to the dating of the Formation as late Middle Jurassic, probably Bathonian.

TLDR
Failure of the record to reveal the evolutionary histories of those reptilian taxa that are most prone to fossilization emphasizes the need for rigorous, character-based studies in phylogenetic analysis of tetrapod lineages, rather than reliance upon stratigraphical position as an indicator of phylogenetic branching sequence.
