New material of the enigmatic diapsid Khurendukhosaurus is described from the Mongolian type locality, Khuren Dukh, providing additional data on the vertebral column, pelvis, and hind limb. It confirms the choristoderan status of the genus and permits a more detailed phylogenetic analysis that supports a relationship between Khurendukhosaurus and the long-necked Asian Hyphalosauridae. The existence of tall caudal neural spines implies that Khurendukhosaurus was a deep-tailed swimmer. This and… 
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).
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

A longirostrine choristoderan reptile is described from the Early Cretaceous Tetori Group on the basis of an associated specimen from the Kuwajima Formation, Ishikawa Prefecture. This is the first
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
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.

Aspects of some anatomical structures of Champsosaurus(Reptilia: Eosuchia)
TLDR
The essentially complete articulated postcranial skeleton indicates that the ribcage was relatively rigid and Gastralia functioned with this rigid unit in compression and expansion of the pleural cavity and lowered the center of gravity to assist in underwater stability.
