Alas, this is the biggest size I could find for this image.
We’ve already discussed some Triassic marine reptiles on
this here blog: we talked about hupehsuchians HERE and HERE and
then saurosphargids HERE and AtopodentatusHERE. Today, I want to talk about an emerging group of Triassic marine
reptiles, one that only contains two genera (right now) and doesn’t even have
an official name. I’m calling them "vancleaveans" and I expect full credit when
that name is used later in actual paleontological literature.
