The study of comparative anatomy is not confined to the animals that at present inhabit the earth, but extends to the remains of such as existed in the most remote periods of antiquity; among these may be classed the specimen which forms the subject of the present Paper. That the bones of the elephant, rhinoceros, hippopotamus, crocodile, and of many other animals should be met with in a fossil state in this island, in such numbers as to make it appear that at some distant period they were… 
ON THE CRANIAL MORPHOLOGY OF ICHTHYOSAURS
TLDR
It is shown that otic conditions superficially similar to those of captorhinomorphs and pelycosaurs but which are, in fact, “sauropsid” may occur in several groups, including ichthyosaurs.
TRUE SKULL ROOF CONFIGURATION OF ICHTHYOSAURUS AND STENOPTERYGIUS AND ITS IMPLICATIONS
TLDR
It is shown here that a major error in skull roof reconstruction, which dates back to the time of Richard Owen, still dominates the literature, and Lower Liassic ichthyosaurs were more diverse than previously thought.
Evolution of Fish-Shaped Reptiles (reptilia: Ichthyopterygia) in Their Physical Environments and Constraints
TLDR
Ichthyosaurs were a group of Mesozoic marine reptiles that evolved fish-shaped body outlines that allowed estimation of such characteristics as optimal cruising speed, visual sensitivity, and even possible basal metabolic rate ranges.
ON THE EVOLUTION AND HOMOLOGIES OF ICHTHYOPTERYGIAN FOREFINS
TLDR
The evolution of forefins within the Ichthyopterygia is re-evaluated based on the largest set of data available up to present, including recently reported Early Triassic forms, and it is concluded that StenopteryGius, and all other ichthyoperygians belonging to the clade that survived into the Jurassic, lack digit I of the forelimb.
Mary Anning's legacy to French vertebrate palaeontology
TLDR
This work re-examined several ichthyosaur specimens found by Mary Anning, now kept or displayed in the Palaeontology Gallery of the Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle in Paris, and described them here taxonomically for the first time since Cuvier's works.
Giant ichthyosaurs of the Early Jurassic
Temnodontosaurus platyodon, from the English lower Liassic (Hettangian and Sinemurian), is a large ichthyosaur that reached an estimated length of almost 9 m (29 ft). Although represented by at least

TLDR
This study suggests that as many as seven species of Ichthyosaurs are known, providing a firm foundation for the much needed revision of the genus, Ichthyosaurus.
Ichthyosaurs of the British Middle and Upper Jurassic Part 1, Ophthalmosaurus
ABSTRACT The ichthyosaur material of the British Middle and Upper Jurassic referable to Ophthalmosaurus icenicus (Ichthyosauria: Ophthalmosauridae) is revisited and re-described; this is the most

Ichthyosaurs were a highly successful group of marine reptiles that first appeared in the Early Triassic, around 248 million years ago, and became extinct about 90 million years ago, in the Late
A taxonomic reassessment of Ichthyosaurus communis and I. intermedius and a revised diagnosis for the genus
Ichthyosaurus communis De la Beche & Conybeare, 1821 and I. intermedius Conybeare, 1822 have been considered synonymous by some researchers, but distinct species by others. The distinction between
