Mulder and Jagt (2019) came out with a new paper concluding that the putative mosasaur Globidens timorensis is actually an ichthyosaur related to Tholodus and Xinminosaurus, and that the sediments on West Timor in which it was found are Triassic in age. There is also another Triassic marine reptile found in West Timor, the Mixosaurus-like ichthyosaur Mixosaurus timorensis. Is anyone not familiar with little-known marine reptiles from West Timor. I'm guessing that some Triassic ichthyosaurs that swam in the waters of present-day China traversed the waters of present-day Indonesia. Eric W.A. Mulder and John W.M. Jagt (2019).
