An almost complete, ornithocheirid pterosaur from the Romulado Member of the Santana Formation, NE Brazil is described. The specimen lacks a rostral and dentary median sagittal crest and is sufficiently distinct from other crestless taxa to warrant the erection of a new genus and species, Barbosania gracilirostris gen. et sp. nov. It confirms the absence of a crest as a genuine condition rather than a consequence of ontogenetic immaturity and indicates a shift from the previously observed…

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 exceptionally well-preserved Pterosauria from the Lower Cretaceous Araripe Basin, Northeast Brazil
Abstract This study describes two pterosaur specimens from the Romualdo Formation (Lower Cretaceous, Aptian–Albian), Araripe Basin, from the municipalities of Araripina and Exu of Pernambuco State,
On Targaryendraco wiedenrothi gen. nov. (Pterodactyloidea, Pteranodontoidea, Lanceodontia) and recognition of a new cosmopolitan lineage of Cretaceous toothed pterodactyloids
TLDR
The recognition of this clade helps fill the temporal gap between the Anhangueria and Cimoliopterus, and also demonstrates that the diversity of Cretaceous toothed pterosaurs was higher than previously thought.
A New Small-Bodied Azhdarchoid Pterosaur from the Lower Cretaceous of England and Its Implications for Pterosaur Anatomy, Diversity and Phylogeny
TLDR
A pelvis-only phylogenetic analysis was constructed to test whether the pterosaur pelvis carries a useful phylogenetic signal, and several characters suggest that Vectidraco belongs to Azhdarchoidea, while the general phylogenetic composition of western European and Chinese communities appear to have been approximately similar.

TLDR
The taxon "Pricesaurus megalodon" is considered here a nomen nudum for lacking distinctive diagnostic features and for being published in noncompliance with the standards of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature.

TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis of a new pterosaur from the Early Cretaceous of Liaoning Province of China and the Pterodactyloidea reveals that the characters of the elongate azhdarchid vertebrae appeared independently in both groups, demonstrating that the homoplastic character states present in these two taxa were acquired in a different order in their respective lineages.

TLDR
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.
