Interesting enough it appears that the label on item 49 is incorrect :faint:

49 and 50 both say Mesopuzosia, but label at the top of 49 doesn't say that (in Japanese) whereas the label on 50 says "me so pu zo shi a". Wonder if I am missing something there.

 

bulls eye! you are right. Number 49 is a Menuites sanadai (メヌイテス サナダイ). They wrote the wrong scientific name.

Thanks for showing.. I'm always interested to see Japan's Upper Cretaceous to compare with our own here on Vancouver Island.

I've never seen a Canadoceras with such dense ribbing as C. multicostatum. Our C. yokoyamai (Japanese name!) is not so dense:

Thanks for sharing this! Really love the multi-Nipponites block :D 

I'd be curious to learn more about those elasmosaurid specimens, too!

It is called nakagawa kubinagaryu. It is an elasmosaur found near nakagawa in hokkaido. I don't have further info about it right now. Sorry.

 

You can find more pictures on this blog.
