O’Gorman, J.P. & Gasparini, Z., 2013. Revision of Sulcusuchus erraini (Sauropterygia, Polycotylidae) from the Upper Cretaceous of Patagonia, Argentina. Alcheringa 37, 161–174. ISSN 0311-5518. Sulcusuchus erraini, from the upper Campanian–lower Maastrichtian of Patagonia, Argentina, is the only polycotylid from the Southern Hemisphere for which the skull and mandible are known. The diagnosis of the species and genus is emended based on new observations. Sulcusuchus is characterized by the… 
A New Species of Pliosaurus (Sauropterygia, Plesiosauria) from the Upper Jurassic of Northwestern Patagonia, Argentina
Abstract. Pliosaurus patagonicus sp. nov., from the middle Tithonian, Vaca Muerta Formation, Neuquén Province, Argentina, is described on an autapomorphic trait —i.e., the distance between the
The Anatomy of Stratesaurus (Reptilia, Plesiosauria) from the Lowermost Jurassic of Somerset, United Kingdom
TLDR
One of the oldest plesiosaurians, Stratesaurus taylori from the earliest Hettangian of the United Kingdom, is provided, due to its plesiomorphic morphology and well-characterized anatomy, to be recommended as an ingroup representative of Plesiosauria for future cladistic analyses of Triassic sauropterygians.
A Small Body Sized Non-Aristonectine Elasmosaurid (Sauropterygia, Plesiosauria) from the Late Cretaceous of Patagonia with Comments on the Relationships of the Patagonian and Antarctic Elasmosaurids
Abstract. The systematics of the Late Cretaceous non-aristonectine elasmosaurids from Argentinean Patagonia are poorly known as there is no valid species currently recognized. Here a new
New elasmosaurids (Sauropterygia, Plesiosauria) from the Late Cretaceous of the Magallanes Basin, Chilean Patagonia: Evidence of a faunal turnover during the Maastrichtian along the Weddellian Biogeographic Province
Several Upper Cretaceous plesiosaur specimens recovered from southernmost Chile are described here. These were collected from upper levels of the Dorotea Formation exposed on three different
PLESIOSAURS ( DIAPSIDA , SAUROPTERYGIA ) FROM LATE CRETACEOUS ( LATE CAMPANIAN – EARLY MAASTRICHTIAN ) MARGINAL MARINE ENVIRONMENTS FROM NORTH PATAGONIA
During the late Campanian and early Maastrichtian, Northern Patagonia suffered the first stage of the Atlantic marine ingression that reached the Neuquén Basin. The Allen and La Colonia formations
PLESIOSAURS (DIAPSIDA, SAUROPTERYGIA) FROM LATE CRETACEOUS (LATE CAMPANIAN–EARLY MAASTRICHTIAN) MARGINAL MARINE ENVIRONMENTS FROM NORTH PATAGONIA
During the late Campanian and early Maastrichtian, Northern Patagonia suffered the first stage of the Atlantic marine ingression that reached the Neuquen Basin. The Allen and La Colonia formations
Osteology of Aristonectes quiriquinensis (Elasmosauridae, Aristonectinae) from the Upper Maastrichtian of Central Chile
ABSTRACT The upper Maastrichtian elasmosaurid plesiosaur Aristonectes quiriquinensis from central Chile is here redescribed following further preparation of the holotype. New cranial characters
Revision of polycotylid plesioaur systematics (sauropterygia plesiosauria) and description of the axial osteology of a juvenile polycotylid
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis incorporating a large taxon sampling from the Polycotylidae was used to parse out the evolutionary relationships among the taxa, and revealed that the two Wallace Ranch specimens form a well-supported clade, and feature a mosaic of character states found in currently described species, and may represent a new species.
CT-Scan Description of Alexandronectes zealandiensis (Elasmosauridae, Aristonectinae), with Comments on the Elasmosaurid Internal Cranial Features
ABSTRACT The holotype specimen of Alexandronectes zealandiensis is analyzed using digital reconstruction based on CT scans. Additional information regarding internal anatomy or obscured details are

Braincase of a Polycotylid Plesiosaur (Reptilia: Sauropterygia) from the Upper Cretaceous of Manitoba, Canada
ABSTRACT The braincase of a polycotylid plesiosaur referable to Dolichorhynchops from the Niobrara Formation (Santonian to the earliest Campanian) in Manitoba, Canada, is described. The
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’.
ON THE CRANIAL ANATOMY OF THE POLYCOTYLID PLESIOSAURS, INCLUDING NEW MATERIAL OF POLYCOTYLUS LATIPINNIS, COPE, FROM ALABAMA
TLDR
New data on the cranial anatomy of polycotylid plesioaurs is presented, and is shown to compare closely to the structure of cryptocleidoid plesiosaurs, and a preliminary phylogenetic analysis is used to establish ingroup relationships of the Cryptocleidoidea.
AN EARLY POLYCOTYLID PLESIOSAUR (REPTILIA: SAUROPTERYGIA) FROM THE CRETACEOUS OF HOKKAIDO, JAPAN
Abstract A partial skeleton of a short-necked plesiosaur excavated from the Upper Cenomanian of the Middle Yezo Group of Hokkaido, Japan, includes disarticulated vertebrae, the right half of the
OSTEOLOGY OF A NEW PLESIOSAUR FROM THE LOWER CRETACEOUS (ALBIAN) THERMOPOLIS SHALE OF MONTANA
Abstract A new taxon of Cretaceous short-necked plesiosaur, Edgarosaurus muddi, gen. et sp. nov., is described. The specimen consists of a complete skull, 34 vertebrae including the entire series of
A phylogeny of Plesiosauria (Sauropterygia) and its bearing on the systematic status of Leptocleidus Andrews, 1922
TLDR
A cladistic analysis including Leptocleidus and a new, apparently morphologically similar specimen from Alberta, was undertaken to assess their phylogenetic position within Plesiosauria, and results indicate a basal dichotomous split into the traditionally recognized pliosauroidea and plesiosauroid clades.
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.
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.
Cranial Anatomy and Taxonomy of Dolichorhynchops Bonneri New Combination, a Polycotylid (Sauropterygia: Plesiosauria) from the Pierre Shale of Wyoming and South Dakota
TLDR
This analysis reveals a stable sister-taxon relationship with Dolichorhynchops osborni, and a wide-ranging homoplasy among characters previously diagnostic among polycotylid genera challenges the alpha taxonomy of forms from the western interior seaway.
