Futabasaurus-suzukii fossil-rock replica at Tokyo NSM

Cast of fossils of Futabasaurus suzukii exhibited at the National Science Museum of Japan.

Futabasaurus is a genus of plesiosaur from the Late Cretaceous of Fukushima, Japan. Described and named in 2006, it was assigned to the family Elasmosauridae.

The name "Futabasaurus" also appears in connection with a theropod dinosaur, also from the Late Cretaceous of Japan. However, this dinosaur was not officially named, so the dinosaur "Futabasaurus" is a nomen nudum when applied to this theropod. It is not the same as the plesiosaur named Futabasaurus.
