A marine reptile fauna from the Early Jurassic Saltford Shale (Blue Lias Formation) of central England
SUMMARY A previously undocumented marine reptile fauna comprising well-preserved ichthyosaur and plesiosaur remains is described from the Early Jurassic Saltford Shale Member within the Blue Lias
The first record of lizards and amphibians from the Wessex Formation (Lower Cretaceous: Barremian) of the Isle of Wight, England
The Lower Cretaceous beds of the Wessex Formation of the Isle of Wight are renowned worldwide for their dinosaur fauna, but traces of associated small tetrapods have been harder to find. Here we
Marine vertebrate remains from the Toarcian–Aalenian succession of southern Beaujolais, Rhône, France
Several groups are recorded for the first time in the Toarcian–Aalenian succession of France, implying new palaeobiogeographic interpretations and prompting discussion of marine amniote diversity during this interval.
Derived fossils in the southern English Wealden (non-marine early Cretaceous): a review
Abstract Derived fossils occur in all the principal facies associations of the southern English Wealden succession (non-marine early Cretaceous). They confirm the presence of Palaeozoic and early–mid
Ichthyosaurs from the Jurassic of Skye, Scotland
Fossils of Mesozoic vertebrates are rare in Scotland, particularly specimens of marine reptiles such as plesiosaurs and ichthyosaurs. We describe a suite of ichthyosaur fossils from the Early to
The presence of the dromatheriid cynodont Pseudotriconodon wildi is reported from the Rhaetian of Great Britain in the fissure deposits at Holwell Quarries. The British Rhaetic cynodont fauna,
A small theropod dinosaur from the Lower Jurassic Lias Group of Charmouth, Dorset
Abstract Terrestrial reptile remains are rare in Early Jurassic deposits from the UK but include important records of early dinosaurs and pterosaurs. Here we report an isolated limb bone from the
Filling the Corallian gap: new information on Late Jurassic marine reptile faunas from England
Two of the best known Mesozoic marine reptile assemblages can be found in units deposited in the Jurassic SubBoreal Seaway of the UK: the late Middle Jurassic Oxford Clay Formation (OCF) and Late
Jurassic marine reptiles of the Neuquén Basin: records, faunas and their palaeobiogeographic significance
Abstract The largest diversity of Jurassic marine reptiles from Gondwana has been recorded in the Neuquén Basin. Although the Early Jurassic records are limited, the records from the Middle Jurassic,
An important marine vertebrate-bearing locality from the Lower Kimmeridge Clay (Upper Jurassic) of Westbury, Wiltshire
The Blue Circle Industries pic Westbury Works is a major marine vertebrate-bearing exposure in the Lower Kimmeridge Clay of Wiltshire. The quarry faces have yielded important chelonian,
