  author={Timothy S. Myers},
North American pterosaurs are edentulous with the exception of Coloborhynchus (Lee, 1994). In contrast, toothed pterosaurs be longing to the Ornithocheiridae are widely distributed and abun dant in other parts of the world at this time, with documented occurrences on every continent except Antarctica (Molnar and Thulborn, 1980; Lee, 1994; Mader and Kellner, 1999; Kellner and Tomida, 2000; Unwin, 2001; L? and Ji, 2005; Unwin and Mar till, 2007). The specimen described here, consisting of a… 
Earliest Occurrence of the Pteranodontidae (Archosauria: Pterosauria) in North America: New Material from the Austin Group of Texas

Short note on a Pteranodontoid pterosaur (Pterodactyloidea) from western Queensland, Australia.
This work redescribes this specimen, showing that it cannot be referred to one of the aforementioned genera, but represents a new species of Pteranodontoid, here named Aussiedraco molnari gen. et sp.
A New Species of Crested Pterosaur (Pterodactyloidea, Anhangueridae) from the Lower Cretaceous (Upper Albian) of Richmond, North West Queensland, Australia
ABSTRACT Pterosaur fossils from Australia are exceptionally rare. Since the discovery of the continent's first pterosaur some 40 years ago, fewer than 20 specimens have been described. The Lower
New toothed pterosaurs (Pterosauria: Ornithocheiridae) from the middle Cretaceous Kem Kem beds of Morocco and implications for pterosaur palaeobiogeography and diversity
Abstract Pterodactyloid pterosaurs underwent a diversification in the Late Jurassic and Early Cretaceous, followed by a major turnover event in the mid-Cretaceous, when ornithocheirids and basal

Taxonomic review of the Ornithocheirus complex (Pterosauria) from the Cretaceous of England
Investigation of the primary literature confirmed that Criorhynchus should be considered an objective junior synonym of Ornithocheirus, and a cladistic analysis demonstrates that Anhangueridae lies within a newly recognized clade, here named AnHangueria, which also includes the genera Cearadactylus, Brasileodactyls, Ludodactelus, and Camposipterus.
An anhanguerian pterodactyloid mandible from the lower Valanginian of Northern Germany, and the German record of Cretaceous pterosaurs
The record of Cretaceous pterosaur remains from Germany is sparse. The material recovered to date includes the fragmentary holotypes of Targaryendraco wiedenrothi and Ctenochasma roemeri, as well as

ABSTRACT A new pterosaur species, Cimoliopterus dunni, sp. nov., is described based on a partial rostrum from the upper Cenomanian Britton Formation in the Eagle Ford Group of north-central Texas.
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.

A new pterosaur specimen comprising a partial skull and associated postcranial elements from the Lower Cretaceous Wessex Formation of Yaverland, Isle of Wight, southern England, is assigned to a new
An overview of the pterosaur assemblage from the Cambridge Greensand (Cretaceous) of Eastern England
The Cambridge Greensand pterosaur assemblage is similar to a slightly younger, but much smaller assemblages from the Lower Chalk of England and shares some elements, such as ornithocheirids, in common with many other late Early and early Late Cretaceous assemblelages.
Toothed pterosaurs from the Santana Formation (Cretaceous; Aptian-Albian) of northeastern Brazil. A reappraisal on the basis of newly described material
The increasing numbers of pterosaur finds from Brazil obviously increased our knowledge, but through the years, taxonomy has become less clear as one would expect. Various reasons can be given for
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.
A New Ornithocheirid from the Early Cretaceous of Liaoning Province, China
