ABSTRACT Choristodera is a clade of freshwater aquatic reptiles with a strictly Laurasian distribution and a temporal record extending from at least Middle Jurassic to Miocene. The large Cretaceous-Eocene neochoristoderes Champsosaurus and Simoedosaurus are the most familiar taxa, but many smaller representatives have since been recognized. Neochoristoderes disappeared from the fossil record in the Eocene, but choristoderes survived into the European Neogene in the form of the small… 
A new choristodere (Reptilia: Choristodera) from an Aptian–Albian coal deposit in China
Choristoderes are a small clade of freshwater aquatic reptiles known from deposits of Jurassic–Miocene age. They show their greatest diversity in the Early Cretaceous of Asia, with seven recorded
The first record of a nearly complete choristodere (Reptilia: Diapsida) from the Upper Jurassic of Hebei Province, People’s Republic of China
Choristodera are freshwater aquatic reptiles known from the Middle Jurassic to the Miocene. Their fossil record shows a peak in diversity in the Early Cretaceous of eastern Asia, most notably in the
An Appalachian population of neochoristoderes (Diapsida, Choristodera) elucidated using fossil evidence and ecological niche modelling
Four neochoristoderan vertebral centra are described from the latest Cretaceous of New Jersey, USA. One specimen was recovered from the basal transgressive lag of the Navesink Formation in the area
On the diverse and widely ignored Paleocene avifauna of Menat (Puy-de-Dôme, France): new taxonomic records and unusual soft tissue preservation
TLDR
The Paleocene locality of Menat has yielded several avian fossils, which remained poorly studied, even though some were found almost a century ago, and those birds from Menat, which are at least tentatively identifiable, resemble taxa from early Eocene fossil localities.
New data on the microvertebrate fauna from the Upper Jurassic or lowest Cretaceous of Ksar Metlili (Anoual Syncline, eastern Morocco)
Abstract The Middle Jurassic – Early Cretaceous period witnessed the emergence of some major representatives of modern continental vertebrate groups (stem lissamphibians, squamates, therian mammals
High morphological disparity in a bizarre Paleocene fauna of predatory freshwater reptiles

TLDR
The skulls and skeletons of two new choristoderes from a single Paleocene ecosystem in western North America are described that reveal the hidden Cenozoic diversity of this reptile clade and strengthen the evidence for the existence of distinctive freshwater faunas in Paleogene Eurasia and North America.
Revealing body proportions of the enigmatic choristodere reptile Khurendukhosaurus from Mongolia
Khurendukhosaurus is an enigmatic genus of choristodere, recorded from the Lower Cretaceous of East Asia, Mongolia, and Siberian Russia. Until now, it was known only from isolated skull and

NEW CHORISTODERES (REPTILIA : DIAPSIDA) FROM THE UPPER CRETACEOUS AND PALAEOCENE, ALBERTA AND SASKATCHEWAN, CANADA, AND PHYLOGENETIC RELATIONSHIPS OF CHORISTODERA
TLDR
Well-preserved skulls and mandibles from the Oldman and Horseshoe Canyon formations, Alberta, document a new species of Champsosaurus and clarify the status of previously known species of the genus.
Choristoderes and the freshwater assemblages of Laurasia
TLDR
The gavial-like neochoristodere Champsosaurus is the most familiar taxon, characterised by large size, a long rostrum and flared temporal fenestrae, but research over the last three decades has revealed many new genera and exposed an unexpected diversity.
The choristoderan reptile Monjurosuchus from the early Cretaceous of Japan
TLDR
A cladistic analysis was performed in order to place Japanese and Chinese taxa, including the incompletely described Chinese long-necked Hyphalosaurus lingyanensis, into choristoderan phylogeny, and the results support the monophyly of Neochoristodera and a Sino-Japanese clade of long necked Choristoderes.
A new choristodere (Reptilia: Diapsida) from the Lower Cretaceous of western Liaoning Province, China, and phylogenetic relationships of Monjurosuchidae
TLDR
A new monjurosuchid is named and described based on a nearly complete skull and postcranial skeleton from the Early Cretaceous Chiufotang Formation exposed near Chaoyang, western Liaoning Province, China, and a new classification scheme is proposed for choristoderes on the basis of the recovered phylogenetic framework of the group.
The skull of Cteniogenys, a choristodere (Reptilia: Archosauromorpha, from the Middle Jurassic of Oxfordshire
TLDR
Comparison with known choristoderes, based on an analysis of 53 derived character states, suggests that Ctemogenys is the most primitive of known genera, which supports recent analyses which conclude that Champsosaurus and Simoedosaurus are derived from archosauromorph diapsids, not lepidosauromorphics as once thought.

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.
EXCEPTIONAL FOSSIL MATERIAL OF A SEMI-AQUATIC REPTILE FROM CHINA: THE RESOLUTION OF AN ENIGMA
TLDR
The newly recovered Monjurosuchus specimens from western Liaoning show unique integumentary structures of this aquatic reptile for the first time, providing important new information on the soft anatomy and lifestyle of choristoderes.

TLDR
Extensions of the temporal ranges of several lineages of diapsids into the Late Permian suggests that more groups of terrestrial reptiles survived the end-Permian mass extinction than thought previously.
