  • A new specimen of the primordial bird Archaeopteryx is reported from the Upper Jurassic Solnhofen Limestone of Bavaria. This "Solnhofen specimen" is the largest of now six skeletal specimens and shows dose similarities with the London specimen. It is therefore assigned to Archaeopteryx lithographica Meyer. Clear impressions of the feather shafts of the left wing are preserved.
