A rather decent collection of bits, you've got some very attractive specimens there. :)

Love the little bones, i remember finding pieces like this at Lyme Regis when I was a lad. 

Thanks for sharing.

There is also a paddle bone in the middle of the Icthyosaurus slate. Nice collection, I am especially fond of the massive Icthy vertebra:dinothumb:. Also I think this article will help https://plesiosauria.com/anatomy.php

I love that plate. Just enough there to be a cool specimen, and just enough not there to not be scientifically important. Really good acquisition. And all the others are beauties!

It is a incredibly detailed neural arch bone (I believe) from a Plesiosaur. Feel free to tell me which part of the skull this belonged to as I can’t find any answers on Internet

Nice collection! 

 

A neural arch is a part of a vertebra rather than the skull :)
