New ichthyosaur species!


Not long after posting my recent Ichthyosaur taxonomy page, with its list of valid genera, I find myself needing amend it; but in a good way.

Published today in the journal Palaeontology is the description of a new Lower Jurassic ichthyosaur from France: Temnodontosaurus azerguensis.

MARTIN, J. E., FISCHER, V., VINCENT, P. and SUAN, G. 2012. A longirostrine Temnodontosaurus (Ichthyosauria) with comments on Early Jurassic ichthyosaur niche partitioning and disparity. Palaeontology, 55, 995–1005.
