The Gault hitherto has yielded but scanty remains of animals referable to the Reptilia and to the Palæosauria; so that more than ordinary interest attaches to the discovery, in a comparatively perfect condition, of remains belonging to a genus found hitherto only in New Zealand, which may be regarded as distinctive of the deposit. The remains of this Plesiosaurian were first found, rolled and abraded, at the foot of the cliffs; much of the caudal region of the animal may therefore have…

THE NATURE OF MAUISAURUS HAASTI HECTOR, 1874 (REPTILIA: PLESIOSAURIA)
Abstract A newly prepared elasmosaurid plesiosaur specimen, from the Haumurian (Upper Cretaceous) Conway Formation of North Canterbury, is more complete than any found previously in New Zealand. The
A reappraisal of the Late Cretaceous Weddellian plesiosaur genus Mauisaurus Hector, 1874
TLDR
A re-assessment of the most complete specimen previously assigned to Mauisaurus suggests it is a typical long-necked elasmosaurid closely comparable to Tuarangisaurus keyesi Wiffen and Moisley, 1986.
An Elasmosaur with Stomach Contents and Gastroliths from the Pierre Shale (Late Cretaceous) of Kansas
Abstract A nearly complete skeleton of an elasmosaurid plesiosaur (NJSM 15435) from the Sharon Springs Member (Middle Campanian) of the Pierre Shale, Logan County, Kansas, is associated intimately
Neuroanatomy of the vertebral column of Vegasaurus molyi (Elasmosauridae) with comments on the cervico-dorsal limit in plesiosaurs
TLDR
This work records the osseous correlates of the nervous system housed in the neural channel along the vertebral column of the elasmosaurid Vegasaurus molyi from the lower Maastrichtian levels of the Snow Hill Island Formation (Antarctica), suggesting an interesting difference in the pattern of vertebra column regionalization among plesiosaurs.
TUARANGISAURUS AUSTRALIS SP. NOV. (PLESIOSAURIA: ELASMOSAURIDAE) FROM THE LOWER CRETACEOUS OF NORTHEASTERN QUEENSLAND, WITH ADDITIONAL NOTES ON THE PHYLOGENY OF THE ELASMOSAURIDAE
The skull and associate cervical vertebrae of an elasmosaur from the Lower Cretaceous of northeastern Queensland are described as a new species of Tuarangisaurus, Tuarangisaurus australis. They
The erratics of the English Chalk
Abstract A description is given of the Th. Wiltshire and G.E. Dibley Collections of erratics from the Chalk comprising 388 stones. Most of the specimens are small, from ½ to 5 cm. in length, only
Possible missing elements of the type specimen of Elasmosaurus platyurus Cope 1868 ? ” –
The holotype is the single most important specimen in zoological taxonomy, and to avoid confusion, it must be the remains of a single individual. Re–evaluation of data presented to infer that three
GASTROLITHS IN THE TRIASSIC ICHTHYOSAUR PANJIANGSAURUS FROM CHINA
Gastroliths (stomach stones) are frequently reported in association with plesiosaur remains, especially elasmosaurids (e.g., Brown, 1904; Williston, 1904; Welles and Bump, 1949; Darby and Ojakangas,
Morphologic and Ontogenetic Patterns in Elasmosaur Neck Length, with Comments on the Taxonomic Utility of Neck Length Variables
TLDR
Analysis of data from complete elasmosaur necks in an attempt to quantify and understand the variation in centrum dimensions finds variation in cervical centrum shape is found to stem from at least three sources: ontogeny, intracolumn variation, and intercolumn or taxonomic variation.
