Plesiosaur fossil. Museum display of a fossil of the large-skulled plesiosaur Plesiosaurus macrocephalus. This was one of the finds made by British fossil collector Mary Anning (1799-1847), who made her discoveries in the Jurassic cliffs of Lyme Regis, Dorset, UK. She found this fossil in 1830. It was named by William Buckland, and as stated on the label at lower right, was described in an 1840 paper by Richard Owen. The wealthy collector who purchased the specimen and donated it to the British Museum was William Willoughby Cole, 3rd Earl of Enniskillen. This specimen is now held in the collections of the Natural History Museum, London, UK.
