Introductory. The following communication treats of certain remains referred to four species of English Mesozoic Reptiles, some of which were first described or named by Professor H. G. Seeley, and also includes a discussion as to the affinities of a fifth form. The substance of that portion of the paper relating to Peloneustes philarchus was previously brought under the notice of the Society at the Meeting held on May 23rd as a separate communication, entitled “On the Skeleton of a… Expand

Redescription of the skull and mandible of Parksosaurus from the Late Cretaceous, with comments on the family Hypsilophodontidae (Ornithischia) /
The head skeleton of Parksosaurus is more similar to that of Hypsilophodon from the Lower Cretaceous of England than to those of Dryosaurus and Dysalotosaurus, two closely related genera ofExpand
The affinities of ‘Steneosaurus barettoni’ (Crocodylomorpha, Thalattosuchia), from the Jurassic of Northern Italy, and implications for cranial evolution among geosaurine metriorhynchids
TLDR
The combination of cranial and dental features present in this specimen supports its referral to Neptunidraco, an interpretation that adds new information on the morphology of the Italian metriorhynchid. Expand
A revision of the non-avian dinosaurs ‘Eucercosaurus tanyspondylus’ and ‘Syngonosaurus macrocercus’ from the Cambridge Greensand, UK
Abstract The Cambridge Greensand Member (lower Cenomanian: Upper Cretaceous) has yielded a diverse fauna of terrestrial and marine tetrapods, whose remains are largely reworked from the underlyingExpand
A fish fit for Ozymandias? : the ecology, growth and osteology of Leedsichthys (Pachycormidae, Actinopterygii)
In this thesis, I describe work to resolve issues of bone identifications that have been outstanding since Smith Woodward's initial description in 1889, to assess the taxonomic validity of materialExpand
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’. Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
The first record of Tyrannoneustes (Thalattosuchia: Metriorhynchidae): a complete skull from the Callovian (late Middle Jurassic) of Germany
TLDR
The new specimen shows characters of both species, with slight variations that are too little to create a new species, therefore, the specimen found near Münster was assigned to Tyrannoneustes cf. Expand
A new Pliosaurus species (Sauropterygia, Plesiosauria) from the Upper Jurassic of Patagonia: new insights on the Tithonian morphological disparity of mandibular symphyseal morphology
TLDR
A new species of Pliosaurus is described, the second for the genus from the Southern Hemisphere, collected from the upper Tithonian levels of the Vaca Muerta Formation, Neuquén Province, Patagonia. Expand
‘Old bones, dry subject’: the dinosaurs and pterosaur collected by Alfred Nicholson Leeds of Peterborough, England
Abstract Alfred Nicholson Leeds, F.G.S., amassed one of the largest collections of fossil vertebrates from a single geological horizon anywhere in the world. The Leeds Collection is world famous forExpand
