Abstract

The holotype and three referred specimens of the iguanodontid dinosaur Vectisaurus valdensis Hulke are described from the Wealden (Lower Cretaceous, Barremian) of the Isle of Wight, England. Vectisaurus is characterized by the following combination of characters: elongate neural spines, markedly concave posterior surfaces to the dorsal and caudal centra, posterior dentary teeth on anteromedial edge of coronoid process, dentary teeth with prominent central keel plus two secondary ridges. Six sympatric ornithopod species are recognized from the Wealden Beds of the Isle of Wight.
