The extensive collections in the museum of Yale University contain so many of the important type specimens now known from America, that they alone furnish an admirable basis for classification, and it was upon these mainly that I first established the present system, which has since… 

A NEW ICHTHYOSAUR FROM THE UPPER JURASSIC LITHOGRAPHIC LIMESTONES OF BAVARIA
