On the Upper Jurassic Ichthyosaur remains from the Russian North.
Proceedings of the Zoological Institute RAS 319(1): 81–97

An ichthyosaurian skeletal remains assigned to the genera
Arthropterygius and Ophthalmosaurus are described from the Volgian
deposits of the Komi Republic and Nenets Autonomous Region (Okrug)
(Russia). These specimens along with findings from Svalbard provide an
opportunity to draw some preliminary conclusions on the distribution
of ichthyosaurs during the Late Jurassic and Early Cretaceous epoch.
