In the former communication which I had the honour of submitting to the Society, on the subject of the fossil remains of animals belonging to the Saurian order, it was my object to give a general outline of the facts which my own observation, or that of others, had enabled me, up to that period, to ascertain concerning the genus Ichthyosaurus; and to introduce to the knowledge of the public a new genus, which my own inquiries, assisted by those of Mr. De la Beche, had enabled me to constitute… 
A fresh look at the genus Ichthyosaurus: species characteristics, morphometrics, and phylogeny
Ichthyosaurs are among the best known of Mesozoic marine reptiles, ranging from the Early Triassic (252-247 Ma) to the end of the Cenomanian (93.9 Ma; Fischer et al., 2016). The genus Ichthyosaurus
A taxonomic reassessment of Ichthyosaurus communis and I. intermedius and a revised diagnosis for the genus
Ichthyosaurus communis De la Beche & Conybeare, 1821 and I. intermedius Conybeare, 1822 have been considered synonymous by some researchers, but distinct species by others. The distinction between
A taxonomic review of Ichthyosaurus from Somerset
TLDR
This study suggests that as many as seven species of Ichthyosaurs are known, providing a firm foundation for the much needed revision of the genus, Ichthyosaurus.
ON THE CRANIAL MORPHOLOGY OF ICHTHYOSAURS
TLDR
It is shown that otic conditions superficially similar to those of captorhinomorphs and pelycosaurs but which are, in fact, “sauropsid” may occur in several groups, including ichthyosaurs.
Ichthyosaurs of the British Middle and Upper Jurassic Part 1, Ophthalmosaurus
ABSTRACT The ichthyosaur material of the British Middle and Upper Jurassic referable to Ophthalmosaurus icenicus (Ichthyosauria: Ophthalmosauridae) is revisited and re-described; this is the most
PRELIMINARY DESCRIPTION AND PHYLOGENETIC POSITION OF A NEW PLESIOSAUR (REPTILIA: SAUROPTERYGIA) FROM THE TOARCIAN OF HOLZMADEN, GERMANY
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis places Plesiopterys as the sister group of the Plesiosauroidea, and as such the taxon is the most basal taxon yet known on the branch leading to this major clade.
PRELIMINARY DESCRIPTION AND PHYLOGENETIC POSITION OF A NEW PLESIOSAUR (REPTILIA: SAUROPTERYGIA) FROM THE TOARCIAN OF HOLZMADEN, GERMANY
TLDR
A faunal comparison between Holzmaden and the Lower Toarcian deposits on the Yorkshire coast of England concludes that the HolZmaden fauna is more plesiomorphic than the roughly coeval Yorkshire fauna in two of three plesiosaur subclades.
Giant ichthyosaurs of the Early Jurassic
Temnodontosaurus platyodon, from the English lower Liassic (Hettangian and Sinemurian), is a large ichthyosaur that reached an estimated length of almost 9 m (29 ft). Although represented by at least
A Cladistic Analysis and Taxonomic Revision of the Plesiosauria (Reptilia: Sauropterygia)
TLDR
The Plesiosauria is found to by polyphyletic due to the inclusion of the Polycotylidae; this second clade is instead a member of the Plesiosauroidea, and thus more closely related to elasmosaurs than to other ‘pliosaurs’.
A New Specimen of Ichthyosaurus conybeari (Reptilia, Ichthyosauria) from Watchet, Somerset, England, U.K., and a Reexamination of the Species
TLDR
A revised diagnosis recognizes new morphological characters that distinguish the species: slender maxilla with a long, delicate premaxillary process; narrow postorbital; humerus with an anteriorly offset dorsal process that has a well-defined lip extending slightly into the shaft.
