Stenopterygian Studies

Image by Nobu Tamura
The history of Stenopterygius is extensive and difficult to fathom in some regards. Labs have tried to differentiate the species many times over and even revised the conclusions of others a number of times. Stenopterygius has been described in whole and in part. The parts are actually greater than the whole in many ways. The parts include descriptions of birth, analyses of the skull roof, and even a discussion of the forefins of these rather interesting and well known ichthyosaurs.The studies are not all German even. The Italian paleontologists have gotten into the mix on occassion while studying Stenopterygius.
