Taxonomic list

• "Together with our metacarpal bone, there were found at Sandown Bay some vertebrae and fragments of other bones of smaller reptiles; and in the same place also about four years ago, the Rev. Gerard Smith discovered part of a very large bone, probably a fragment of a coracoid bone, or of the pelvis, which is also in the Oxford Museum."
