The purpose of the problem was twofold. First, the problem involved the compiling of a current bibliography and catalog of the reptiles and birds of the Kansas Cretaceous. Second, the problem involved describing two new species of Cretaceous reptiles which are situated in the Fort Hays Kansas State College museum. The bibliography and catalog covers the six orders of reptiles and two order s of birds which have been collected from the Kansas Cretaceous. Publications up to the year 1962 are included in this section. The two new species are Pteranodon sternbergi and Teleorhinus occidentalis. P. sternbergi was collected from the Niobrara formation while T. occidentalis is from either the uppermost Dakota formation or the lowermost Graneros formation.
