Plesiosaurus is a genus of extinct marine reptiles. It was one of the first members of the Plesiosaur group. The genus lived in the early Jurassic in Europe. Plesiosaurus was one of the early marine reptiles discovered, along with Ichthyosaurus and Mosasaurus, among others. About fifteen species have been named in this genus.
Plesiosaurus superficially resembled early pliosaurs such as Macroplata, but there were some distinct differences. Plesiosaurus had a fairly short neck and a fairly large head for a representative of the Plesiosauroidea, but in Macroplata the neck was slightly shorter and the head slightly larger. In addition, in Plesiosaurus, the rear paddles were smaller than the front paddles. With Macroplata this was the other way around.
