Change of identity
These specimens were previously identified by J B Delair as Stenosaurus sp. But they were reclassified as Metriorhynchine in 2014 by Lorna Steel of the Natural History Museum and Mark Young, University of Edinburgh.
The specimen was collected by Miss Katherine Ouless, a significant name in the Dorset County Museum’s history. The collection date is quoted as 1901.
No grid references are available, but the Accessions Register says ‘E of Ringstead Cottages, Ringstead Bay’.
