Re: Sea reptile is biggest on record

Quoting Jean-Michel BENOIT <s.aegyptiacus@wanadoo.fr>:

What about this giant Ichtyosaur found a few years ago in NA (Canada, I think)?
Still no publication?

I suspect you mean _Shonisaurus sikanniensis_, from northeastern British Columbia. It has been published:

Nicholls, Elizabeth L., and Makoto Manabe. 2004. Giant Ichthyosaurs Of The Triassic--A New Species Of Shonisaurus From The Pardonet Formation (Norian: Late Triassic) of British Columbia. Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology, vol. 24, no. 4, pp. 838-849.
