Abstract
    In this paper, a left humerus and epipodials of an Ichthyosauria, discovered in Pliensbachian from Differt (Belgian Lorraine) and preserved in the collections of the Institut royal des Sciences naturelles de Belgique, are described. This fossil is attributed to Leptopterygius tenuirostris (CONYBEARE, 1822). At the present time, this is the only fossil of an Ichthyosauria which can be identified at specific level, in Middle Liassic formations. Both geographical and stratigraphic distributions of this species are consequently enlarged.
