Sauropterygia bones

A 20 cm long stone with a couple of bones from a triassic "Bonebed" in a quarry in southern Germany (Baden-Württemberg). On the plate are two vertebrae, one rib and two unidentified bones. The quality of the bones is partly not good (especially the vert in the middle is bad preserved). The prep was not too difficult but it took quite a long time to finish it.

 

Some more pictures:

One of the unidentified bones is a sauropterygian coracoid (most probably nothosaurid) and the other one is the head of a femora.

Thank you @Pemphix

So the darker (almost black) bone is the coracoid?
