Introductory.—The primary object of this communication is to bring to the notice of the Society numerous remains of an apparently new Iguanodont Reptile obtained by Mr. C. Dawson, F.G.S., of St. Leonards, from the Wadhurst Clay (one of the beds of the Hastings Sand, or lower division of the Wealden), and recently acquired by the British Museum; and also a maxilla from the Wealden of the Isle of Wight, apparently referable to Ornithopsis. Having, however, recently examined the whole of the… Expand

On the history, osteology, and systematic position of the Wealden (Hastings group) dinosaur Hypselospinus fittoni (Iguanodontia: Styracosterna)
This account documents the past work on the osteology of material that can be attributed to Hypselospinus fittoni and suggests that there is a fundamental split amongst the more derived (clypeodontan) ornithopod ornithischians into the clades Hypsilophodontia and Iguanodontia. Expand
The status of Dollodon and other basal iguanodonts (Dinosauria: Ornithischia) from the Lower Cretaceous of Europe
Only two species of large-bodied basal iguanodont should be recognized from the Barremian-Aptian of England and Belgium: M. atherfieldensis and I. bernissartensis. Expand
A reappraisal of Thecocoelurus daviesi (Dinosauria: Theropoda) from the Early Cretaceous of the Isle of Wight
An incomplete cervical vertebra of a theropod dinosaur from the Lower Cretaceous of the Isle of Wight, England, first described by Seeley in 1888 and made the type of Thecocoelurus daviesi , showsExpand
A New Basal Hadrosauroid (Dinosauria: Ornithopoda) from the Turonian of New Mexico
A preliminary phylogenetic analysis reveals that Jeyawati is a basal hadrosauroid more derived than Probactrosaurus, Eolambia, and Protohadros, but more basal than Shuangmiaosaurus, Bactosaurus, and Telmatosaurus. Expand
On the taxonomy and diversity of Wealden iguanodontian dinosaurs (Ornithischia: Ornithopoda)
The taxonomy of Wealden-aged iguanodontians is reviewed in the light of recent publications that indicate higher levels of taxonomic diversity existed compared to estimates from the recent past, and some inconsistency in the maintenance of standards associated with good taxonomic practice is suggested.

A new species of basal hadrosaurid (Dinosauria, Ornithischia) from the Cenomanian of Texas
The taxon is unique among hadrosaurids in possessing a ventrally deflected muzzle, including a deep, rostrally massive mandible, that is interpreted to represent an exclusively low-browsing pattern of food acquisition in a deltai... Expand

Introduction The object of this paper is to determine how far the distribution of Palæozoic and Mesozoic terrestrial Tetrapods was influenced by geological and climatological factors. In the firstExpand
A revised taxonomy of the iguanodont dinosaur genera and species
A stratigraphic analysis and character census are combined with a character census that shows the European iguanodonts are markedly more morphologically divergent than other dinosaur genera, and some appear phylogenetically more derived than others. Expand
Notes on the rising diversity of Iguanodont taxa, and Iguanodonts named after Darwin, Huxley, and evolutionary science
The taxonomic diversity of previously published European iguanodonts is reviewed and analyzed. It is concluded that the diversity was very high, contrary to suggestions that many specimens can beExpand
Turiasauria-like teeth from the Upper Jurassic of the Lusitanian Basin, Portugal
Turiasauria is a clade of eusauropods with a wide stratigraphic range that could extend from the Bathonian to the lower Aptian including Turiasaurus, Losillasaurus, Zby and putatively, Galveosaurus,Expand
