B. forojuliensis (type specimen: MFSN 27285, a postcranial skeleton)
Bobosaurus shares many characteristics with plesiosaurs and is one of a number of recently discovered derived sauropterygians that bridge the gap between basal sauropterygians and plesiosaurians.
The name honours the person who found the skeleton, Mr Roberto “Bobo” Rigo (Dalla Vecchia 2006).
