Sinohydrosaurus lingyuanensis (also Hyphalosaurus lingyuanensis) is a more recently discovered and described (Li Jianjun, 1999, Beijing Natural History Museum) marine lizard from the Famous dinosaur fossil beds of Liaoning Province, Peoples Republic of China. Believed to have descended from a land-dwelling progenitor, Sinohydrosaurus was a fresh water marine reptile. Sinohydrosaurus resembles the generally larger Keichousaurus that preceded it by 100 million years, and is definitely desirable as a vertebrate that swam alongside its genetic cousins, the dinosaurs.
This fine fossil comes with a wooden stand and a custom-sized, Chinese, tradition cloth-covered and lined box that are shown in the pictures.
