Re: Shastasaurus as suction-feeding ichthyosaur



From: Ben Creisler

I think Shastasaurus alexandrae was made a junior synonym of Shastasaurus
pacificus some time back. See:
http://www.ucmp.berkeley.edu/science/parks/shasta_trinity.php

This status is mentioned in a number of papers, but without some research
I'm not sure who first proposed it. See for example:

Christopher McGowan 1994.
A New Species of Shastasaurus (Reptilia: Ichthyosauria) from the Triassic
of British Columbia: The Most Complete Exemplar of the Genus
Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology 14(2): 168-179
Jun. 22, 1994
