Jurassic Sea Monsters Days in Luxembourg (25-26/1/2020)

Simolestes keileni fut un des plus grands pliosaures qui aient nagé dans les océans du Jurassique. Une mâchoire inférieure presque complète et une partie du squelette postcrânien furent trouvés dans les années ’80 à Montois-la-Montagne en Lorraine et légués par les découvreurs au Musée national d’histoire naturelle. Décrit en 1994 comme holotype de l’espèce par l’expert belge Pascal Godefroit, le fossile constitue un véritable trésor national. Il fit ainsi exposé une première fois au ‘natur musée’ lors de l’exposition « Unexpected Treasures » en 2018.
