Hi all,

Vertebra found yesterday at Lavernock point - can't decide if it's Ichthyosaur or Plesiosaur!

It's 70mm diameter, 25mm thick at thickest point (but well worn on underside).  No sign of any foramen.

Doesn't appear to be as concave as some of the Ichthy verts I've seen, so I'm guessing Plesiosaur, but I don't really know.

Many thanks

Matthew

Yours is an Ichthyosaur.
