I have found a few Ichthyosaur verts at Charmouth, but none look like this (found at Charmouth).  Might this be a Plesiosaur vert?  Thanks

Hi, yes, this is a Plesiosaur vertebra and comparing it to an articulated sequence online, it is from the distal (tail) end of the animal. Well spotted, that's a nice find!

Thanks Colin.  I was lucky yesterday because a few minutes before finding it, I found these two lying in the clay.
