Here, we expand the meager record of Late Cretaceous South American pterosaurs with the description of a partial rostrum belonging to a large azhdarchid pterodactyloid. The specimen was collected c ... 
Discovery of the largest pterosaur from South America
Abstract A giant humerus (450 mm total length) belonging to one of the largest pterosaur recorded in South America is described. The specimen (UNCUYO-LD 350) was discovered in the Upper Cretaceous
The Last Pterosaurs: First Record from the Uppermost Maastrichtian of the Tremp Syncline (Northern Spain)
: Pterosaur bones are for the first time reported from the Tremp Syncline (Spain) and the southern Pyrenees. They come from the Torrebilles-2 site (Isona, Lleida Province) in the upper
Mistralazhdarcho Maggii, Gen. Et Sp. Nov., A New Azhdarchid Pterosaur from the Upper Cretaceous of Southeastern France
ABSTRACT A series of pterosaur bones from the Upper Cretaceous (Campanian) of Velaux (Bouches-du-Rhône, southeastern France) is described. This material, including both cranial and postcranial
Late Maastrichtian pterosaurs from North Africa and mass extinction of Pterosauria at the Cretaceous-Paleogene boundary
Late Maastrichtian pterosaurs show increased niche occupation relative to earlier, Santonian-Campanian faunas and successfully outcompeted birds at large sizes and suggest an abrupt mass extinction at the K-Pg boundary.
A new ?chaoyangopterid (Pterosauria: Pterodactyloidea) from the Cretaceous Kem Kem beds of southern Morocco
Abstract A new genus and species of edentulous pterodactyloid pterosaur with a distinctive partial rostrum from the mid-Cretaceous (?Albian/Cenomanian) Kem Kem beds of southeast Morocco is described.
The sauropod record of Salitral Ojo del Agua: An Upper Cretaceous (Allen Formation) fossiliferous locality from northern Patagonia, Argentina
Abstract The record of sauropods in the Upper Cretaceous of Patagonia is rich. However, there are still several blanks on this record. Here it is described a new sauropod assemblage coming from the
New azhdarchoid pterosaur (Pterosauria, Pterodactyloidea) with an unusual lower jaw from the Portezuelo Formation (Upper Cretaceous), Neuquén Group, Patagonia, Argentina.
It is advocated here that Argentinadraco barrealensis might have used the lower jaw to obtain its prey by cutting or ploughing through unconsolidated sediment in shallow waters, a feeding behavior not previously proposed for pterosaurs.
Morphology and Taxonomy of Quetzalcoatlus Lawson 1975 (Pterodactyloidea: Azhdarchoidea)
ABSTRACT Quetzalcoatlus is the largest flying organism ever known and one of the most familiar pterosaurs to the public. Despite a half century of interest, it remains very incompletely described.
The largest flying reptile from Gondwana: a new specimen of Tropeognathus cf. T. mesembrinus Wellnhofer, 1987 (Pterodactyloidea, Anhangueridae) and other large pterosaurs from the Romualdo Formation, Lower Cretaceous, Brazil.
The distal end of a larger humerus and a partial wing are described showing that large to giant flying reptiles formed a significant part of the pterosaur fauna from the Romualdo Formation, showing the nomenclatural stability of the Santana deposits are presented.
Review of taxonomy, geographic distribution, and paleoenvironments of Azhdarchidae (Pterosauria)
The four proposed autapomorphies of Eurazhdarcho langendorfensis from the lower Maastrichtian Sebeş Formation of Romania are based on misinterpretations of material and this taxon is likely a subjective junior synonym of Hatzegopteryx thambema.


A possible azhdarchid pterosaur from the Crato Formation (Early Cretaceous, Aptian) of northeast Brazil
The partially articulated, distal portion of a left wing finger of a pterosaur from the Crato Formation of northeast Brazil has a T-shaped cross-section to the second and third phalanges. This
Remains of a Late Cretaceous pterosaur from the Molecap Greensand of Western Australia
Pterosaur remains are very rare in Australasia and especially in Upper Cretaceous strata. Thus, the discovery of a jaw fragment from the Cenomanian–Coniacian Molecap Greensand near Gingin in Western
A new late Cretaceous azhdarchid (Pterosauria, Azhdarchidae) from the Volga Region
A new azhdarchid genus and species, Volgadraco bogolubovi gen. et sp. nov., is described based on an anterior fragment of the mandibular symphysis (mandibular beak) and some postcranial elements from
A large pterodactyloid pterosaur from the Late Cretaceous (Late Maastrichtian) of Western Australia
An incomplete right ulna of a large pterodactyloid pterosaur is described from the Late Cretaceous Miria Formation (Late Maastrichtian), Giralia Range, Western Australia. The bone represents the
Ctenochasmatid pterosaurs from Early Cretaceous deposits in Chile
Fragmentary pterosaur remains from the Early Cretaceous Quebrada Monardes Formation of northern Chile are assigned to Ctenochasmatidae. Although not immediately referable to recognised genera, they
Cranial remains of Quetzalcoatlus (Pterosauria, Azhdarchidae) from Late Cretaceous sediments of Big Bend National Park, Texas
ABSTRACT Numerous remains of the azhdarchid pterosaur Quetzalcoatlus sp., have been recovered over the last twenty years from the Late Cretaceous (Maastrichtian) rocks in Big Bend National Park in
The first pterosaur tracks from Gondwana
Abstract Pterosaur tracks from the Candeleros Member of the Rio Limay Formation (Albian–Cenomanian) at Lake Ezequiel Ramos Mexia, Neuquen Province, Argentina, are the first pterosaurian tracks
On the pterosaur remains from the Río Belgrano Formation (Barremian), Patagonian Andes of Argentina.
The oldest record of the Anhangueridae, previously limited to the Aptian/Albian, is extended to the Barremian, and the Argentinean material is preserved in three dimensions, indicating that the site situated near the Estancia Río Roble has a great potential for new and well preserved specimens.
