(A) referred vertebra of Cyclophiops semicarinatus (one of 24 registered as RUMF-GF-4060), (B) referred vertebra of Dinodon semicarinatum (one of 21 registered as RUMF-GF-4061), (C) referred vertebra of Amphiesma pryeri (one of 39 registered as RUMF-GF-4062), and (D) referred vertebra of Hydrophiinae sp. (unidentified sea snake) (RUMF-GF-4063). Left to right: anterior, lateral (left), posterior, dorsal, and ventral views. Abbreviations are: con, condyle; cot, cotyle; di, diapophysis; ezs, epizygapophyseal spine; hk, hemal keel; hy, hypapophysis; na, neural arch; nc, neural canal; ns, neural spine; pa, parapophysis; pap, parapophyseal process; prz, prezygapophyseal accessory process; przf, prezygapophyseal articular facet; pozf, postzygapophyseal articular facet; sr, subcentral ridge; zy, zygosphene; zyf, zygosphenal articular facet; zygaf, zygantral articular facet.

Looks very similar to one I found in the Lance Formation so I would also say Gar vert.
