Nothosauroidea (extinct order) (Diapsida (subclass), Reptilia (class), ... Living Organisms (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Extinct order of fossil marine reptiles found chiefly in Europe and closely resembling the later plesiosaurs, but classified as a distinct order; dating to the Triassic age. Distinguished by a palate that was closed with the air passages being separated from the food passages, a long and flat skull with large openings, numerous pointed teeth along the margins of the jaws, a slender body, long neck and tail, and long limbs. Although the animal was aquatic, the limbs were less specialized for swimming than they were in more advanced sauropterygians.

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Uitgestorven orde van fossiele zeereptielen die voornamelijk voorkwamen in Europa en die erg leken op de latere plesiosauriĆ«rs, maar als een aparte orde zijn geclassificeerd. De dieren leefden in het Trias. Kenmerkend waren het gesloten gehemelte, de lange, platte schedel met grote openingen, het grote aantal puntige tanden langs de randen van de kaken, het slanke lichaam, de lange nek en staart en de lange ledematen. De openingen voor de luchtwegen waren gescheiden van die van het voedselkanaal. Hoewel het dier in het water leefde, waren de ledematen minder gespecialiseerd voor zwemmen dan bij meer ontwikkelde Sauropterygia.
