Whilst studying plesiosaurian remains described and figured in Lomax (2015), the literature was exhaustively searched for descriptions of plesiosaurians from Poland, with a primary focus on Jurassic specimens. Upon assessment of the published record, and information provided from colleagues, it appeared no plesiosaur fossils from the Jurassic of Poland had been previously published. However, it has since been brought to my attention that fragmentary jaws of two plesiosaurs from the Jurassic (Oxfordian) of Załęcze Wielkie on the Warta, and Mirów near Częstochowa, Poland, were described by Maryańska (1972).
