Abstract [en]

Jurassic plesiosaur fossils are exceptionally rarein Australia and currently restricted to a single fragmentaryskeleton (Sinemurian, Razorback beds, Queensland), somearticulated vertebrae (lower Toarcian, Evergreen Formation,Queensland) and a few isolated bones and teeth (Aalenian–Bajocian, Champion Bay Group, Western Australia).These remains are attributable to either indeterminate plesiosaurs,or more specifically to pliosauroids and plesiosauroids,and occur within a variety of fluviatile-lacustrine tocoastal marine depositional settings. Although hampered bytheir incompleteness, Australia’s Jurassic plesiosaurs are significantbecause they include some of the most ancientoccurrences from nonmarine strata, and Gondwanan marinereptiles of a similar age are otherwise very sparselyknown.
