The oldest reptile fossil, nicknamed `Lizzie the Lizard', a stem-amniote or reptiliomorph, was found on a site in Scotland by palaeontologist Stan Wood in March 1988. The 20.3-cm (8-in) long reptile is estimated to be about 340 million years old, 40 million years older than previously discovered reptiles. `Lizzie' was officially named Westlothiana lizziae in 1991.
