Examples of "holotype_bmnh"
In 1870 Richard Owen named "Pterodactylus validus" based on holotype BMNH 40653, a thirty centimetres long partial wing finger phalanx from the Purbeck Limestone (Britain), identified as that of a pterosaur. The specific name means "strong" in Latin.
The holotype, BMNH R.3861a, consists of a set of vertebrae. Numerous other bones have been found, mainly caudal vertebrae but also dorsals and elements of the appendicular skeleton. No remains of skulls are known. There has been a discovery of 14 fossil eggs which have been attributed to "Magyarosaurus".
These animals are known from a number of complete skeletons (Holotype: BMNH 2018) found by the fossil collector Thomas Hawkins in Somerset, England. They lived in the Late Triassic (Rhaetian) to the Early Jurassic (Hettangian) of Europe (age range: 201.6 to 196.5 million years ago).
The holotype, BMNH B.3386, was found in the Haţeg Basin in a layer of the Sânpetru Formation dating from the Maastrichtian, about 68 million years old, at the time part of the Haţeg Island, one of the islands of the European Archipelago. It consists of a skull with lower jaws.
The fossil of "Agilodocodon scansorius", holotype BMNH 001138, along with that of "Docofossor brachydactylus", was originally found by farmers in the Chinese Tiaojishan Formation and acquired by the Beijing Museum of Natural History. The type species "Agilodocodon scansorius" was named and described in the journal "Science" in 2015. The generic name refers to the membership of the Docodonta and the agility. The specific name refers to the scansorial lifestyle.
The holotype, BMNH R3717, was found in the Albian-age Lower Cretaceous Griman Creek Formation. It consists of a long incomplete amphicoelous (concave surfaces for articulation on the anterior and posterior faces) caudal vertebral centrum. For unknown reasons, he believed it had elongate prezygapophyses. He also suggested that if more material was known, it could prove to be synonymous with other Lightning Ridge "coelurosaurs" (i.e. "Rapator"; coelurosaur in the outdated sense of any small theropod).
Euskelosaurus ("good leg lizard") was a semi-bipedal dinosaur from the Late Triassic. It was a plateosaurid that lived in the Late Triassic Period, in present-day South Africa, Lesotho, and Zimbabwe. It was first described by Thomas Henry Huxley in 1866 as "Euskelesaurus brownii" based on holotype BMNH R1625, limb and spinal bones found by Alfred Brown in 1863. The name was in 1902 emended by Friedrich von Huene into "Euskelosaurus".
If "Macrodontopteryx" is indeed a distinct genus, perhaps some pseudotooth bird fossils found in Lutetian (Middle Eocene, MP11-13, about 45 Ma) deposits at Etterbeek (Belgium) belong therein. Like the holotype BMNH A1, they have been assigned to "Argillornis longipennis" in the past; at least some of the material placed in that taxon at one time or another – but not its syntype humerus pieces – seems too small to be of an adult "Dasornis".
The species "T. acutirostris" was initially named by Richard Owen in 1840. This holotype (BMNH 14553) was from the Alum Shale Formation of Lower Toarcian in Whitby, Yorkshire, England. Michael Maisch, in 2000, described it as belonging in the genus "Temnodontosaurus". However, in 2010 Maisch published a paper stating that the specimen didn’t belong in "Temnodontosaurus", as he had thought previously, and probably belonged in "Ichthyosaurus" instead.
Fossils of "Sarcosaurus" were found in the Lower Lias of England. The type species, "Sarcosaurus woodi", was first described by Charles William Andrews in 1921 shortly after a partial skeleton had been found by S.L. Wood near Barrow-on-Soar. The generic name is derived from Greek "sarx", "flesh". The specific name honours Wood. The holotype, BMNH 4840/1, consists of a pelvis, a vertebra and the upper part of a femur. The preserved length of the femur is .
The type species, "Bothriospondylus suffossus", was described by Richard Owen in 1875. The specific epithet "suffossus" means "undermined" in Latin, a reference to the fact that pleurocoels had hollowed out the sides of the vertebra. It is often incorrectly spelled as "suffosus". Owen based the species on holotype BMNH R44592-5, a set of four dorsal vertebrae found in Wiltshire in a stratum from the Kimmeridgian, the Kimmeridge Clay. Also three unfused sacral vertebrae were referred.
The holotype, BMNH R1989, was found in the Peterborough Member of the Oxford Clay Formation, more especially the "Kosmoceras jason" biozone dating from the middle Callovian. Hulke mistakenly assumed a provenance from the younger Kimmeridge Clay Formation. It consists of a sacrum, of five vertebrae, and two ilia. Other bones were referred to the species, among them two plates thought to be part of the dermal armour. However, on 22 August 1888 Othniel Charles Marsh visited Leeds' collection at Eyebury and recognised these elements as belonging to a giant fish, in 1889 by Arthur Smith Woodward named "Leedsichthys". The plates are in fact part of the latter's skull roof.
Harrison and Walker described two "bradycnemids" from Romania in 1975: "B. draculae" and "Heptasteornis andrewsi". These specimens had initially been assigned to the supposed pelecaniform bird "Elopteryx nopcsai". "Bradycneme" means "ponderous leg", from Ancient Greek "bradys" (βραδύς) "slow, ponderous" + "kneme" (κνήμη) "leg", as the holotype, BMNH A1588, a 37.8 millimetres wide distal tibiotarsus found by Maud Eleanora Seeley, would be very stout if the animal had been an owl, indicating a body height of two metres. The specific name "draculae" is derived from Romanian "dracul", "the dragon" and refers to Dracula.
"Regnosaurus" is known only from the holotype BMNH 2422, a right mandibular (lower jaw) fragment, consisting of a third of the dentary and a part of the splenial. The specimen is six inches long and shows fifteen tooth sockets. Also some replacement teeth are visible. Other bone fragments have sometimes been referred to "Regnosaurus", such as a fossil pubis recovered on the Isle of Wight, but as these are of other parts of the body and a reasonably complete skeleton is lacking, the identity cannot be proven. The same is true for some dermal spikes reported by William Blows. "Regnosaurus" was probably a rather small animal, about 4 metres (13 feet) long.
Valdoraptor (meaning "Wealden plunderer") is a genus of theropod dinosaur from the Early Cretaceous. Its fossils were found in England. It is known only from bones of the feet. The holotype, BMNH R2559 (incorrectly given by Owen as BMNH R2556), was found near Cuckfield in layers of the Tunbridge Wells Sand Formation dating from the late Valanginian. The specimen is damaged lacking parts of the upper and lower ends. It has a conserved length of and an estimated length of . This genus is paleontologically significant for being the first ornithomimosaur specimen known from England and represents the earliest record of ornithomimosaurs in the world.
Juramaia is an extinct genus of very basal eutherian mammal from the Late Jurassic (Oxfordian stage) deposits of western Liaoning, China; it is a small shrew-like mammal of body length approximately 70–100 mm. "Juramaia" is known from the holotype BMNH PM1343, an articulated and nearly complete skeleton including incomplete skull preserved with full dentition. It was collected in the Daxigou site, Jianchang, from the Tiaojishan Formation dated at about . It was first named by Zhe-Xi Luo, Chong-Xi Yuan, Qing-Jin Meng and Qiang Ji in 2011 and the type species is "Juramaia sinensis".
Identified from a nearly complete right ilium, pubis, ischium, and thirteen articulated posterior dorsals and sacrals (holotype BMNH R 3788) found in May 1873 by John Hopkinson in the Old Roar Quarry, at Silverhill, near Hastings, from the lower Wadhurst Clay of East Sussex, England, that David Norman (2010) regarded as an individual of "Barilium". It was named by Kenneth Carpenter and Yusuke Ishida in 2010 and the type species is "Sellacoxa pauli". The generic name means “saddle” ("sella" in Latin) + “hips” ("coxa") in reference to the saddle-shaped ilium, and the specific name honors Gregory S. Paul for recognising that European iguanodont diversity is higher than previously assumed.
The holotype, BMNH R.291, was found in a layer of the Hastings Sand, sandstone dating from the Valanginian - Hauterivian. It consist of an elongated natural internal cast or endocast of the neural canal of the sacrum, about sixty centimetres long. It shows the divisions of at least five and probably seven sacral vertebrae. On three of them the cancellous bone is still present to which the generic name is referring. It is the only known fossil that can be definitely assigned to this genus.
Coloborhynchus clavirostris is a pterosaur species in the family Ornithocheiridae, known from the Lower Cretaceous of England (Valanginian age, 140-136 million years ago). In 1874 Richard Owen, rejecting the creation by Harry Govier Seeley of the genus "Ornithocheirus", named a species "Coloborhynchus clavirostris" based on holotype BMNH 1822, a partial snout from the Hastings Beds of the Wealden Group of East Sussex, England. The genus name means "maimed beak", a reference to the damaged and eroded condition of the fossil; the specific name means "key snout", referring to its form in cross-section.
The holotype, BMNH 46013, was found in a layer of the Kimmeridge Clay Formation dating from the late Kimmeridgian. The main nodule fragment contains the pelvis; a series of six posterior dorsal vertebrae, all sacrals and eight anterior caudal vertebrae; a right femur and some loose vertebrae. In all, thirteen detached vertebrae are present in the material. Also an almost complete left forelimb was contained by another loam clump. Additional elements include a partial fibula with calcaneum, a partial tibia, a right neck plate and a left tail spike.
