Danish mosasaurs

Lindgren, Johan LU and Jagt, J W M (2005) In Netherlands Journal of Geosciences-Geologie en Mijnbouw 84(3). p.315-320
Abstract
Presented are the first formal descriptions of mosasaur remains of Maastrichtian age from the Danish mainland (Jylland, Sjaelland); just two taxa are recognised, viz. Mosasaurus cf. hoffmanni and Plioplatecarpus sp. Recent finds include an association of skeletal fragments, inclusive of a single marginal tooth crown, from within 10 metres or so of the K/T boundary near Holtug, Stevns Klint (Sjaelland, eastern Denmark), here assigned to Plioplatecarpus sp. A brief review of previous records of Danish mosasaurs is added.
