Neusticosaurus edwardsii may have been an ancestor of the pleisiosaurs, and if not, it was closely related. It was a primitive, carnivorous, marine reptile that probably ate fish. It probably was an amphibious dweller in near-shore waters. Like modern reptiles, it had five digits in its hands and feet, and probably swam similarly to aquatic lizards or crocodiles. It was also very closely related to a Chinese pachypleurosaur, Keichousaurus.
Its remains have been found in Middle Triassic marine rocks of Europe.
