the largest confirm is S. sikanniensis, although there is a Ichthyosaur from new Zealand, that has a vetrabate diameter of 457mm, which is 200% of S. sikanniensis, suggest an animal over 30 meter long and weight over 200tons.
it is found by Hector in 1978, and mention by Campbell and Fleming in 1965,1971, but it is lost when it is transported aboard the vessel "Matoaka" en route to london (Cox, 1991)

Not full grown, lack of fusion in the cervical vetrbate, but it is not a juvenile, just young adult or adult still growning, like UCMP 118742

Either Shonisaurus skienesis, a lio on super quadruple steroids, or an elasmosaurus.
