Abstract & Keywords
Abstract: Keichousaurus hui is a small sauropterygian from the Zhuganpo Member of the Middle Triassic Ladian Falang Formation in Xingyi City, Guizhou Province and its vicinity. It is the first Triassic marine reptile that has been discovered, studied and named in China, and is also the first eosauropterygian reported in Asia, playing an important role in the study of sauropterygian paleogeographical distribution and evolution. This study provides a dataset of µCT scanning of the skull of Keichousaurus hui based on its referred specimen (GMPKU-P-3406), including original CT projected images, a merged complete skull image stack, a 3D pdf, an animated video and 3D printable stl files. Original CT projected images and a merged complete skull image stack will contribute to further studies of sauropterygians regarding their morphology and systematics. A 3D pdf, an animated video and 3D printable stl files can be applicated in research, teaching, public education, and cultural and creative industries of Chinese Triassic marine reptiles.
