 Can anyone recommend articles in any of the journals
 which include good evidence of what the topical marine
 reptile specie(s) ate?  Solid evidence (pardon the
 expression), not conjecture.

     I thought marine reptiles and pterosaurs were honorary dinosaurs. 
    Try Judy Massare's _Tooth morphology and prey preference of Mesozoic 
marine reptiles._Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology 7(121-137) 1987 and that 
paper's bibliography. Dan Varner.
