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
A taxonomic and phylogenetic review of the anhanguerid pterosaur group Coloborhynchinae and the new clade Tropeognathinae
The analysis suggests that morphological evolution within anhanguerids was quite more complex than previously thought, with coloborhynchines representing the oldest recorded lineage of AnHangueridae, which achieved a worldwide distribution at least from the Aptian to the Cenomanian.
Ferrodraco lentoni gen. et sp. nov., a new ornithocheirid pterosaur from the Winton Formation (Cenomanian–lower Turonian) of Queensland, Australia
The stratigraphic age of Ferrodraco lentoni (Cenomanian–lower Turonian) implies that anhanguerians might have survived later in Australia than elsewhere, and the presence of premaxillary and mandibular crests, and spike-shaped teeth with subcircular bases enable Ferro draco to be referred to Anhangueria.

The validity of Amblydectes crassidens is reassessed based on new anatomical comparisons and phylogenetic analysis, as well as the description of a new specimen, and it is confirmed as belonging to the clade Tropeognathinae, a recently proposed group of robust anhanguerids which have only been known so far from Gondwanan landmasses.
On Targaryendraco wiedenrothi gen. nov. (Pterodactyloidea, Pteranodontoidea, Lanceodontia) and recognition of a new cosmopolitan lineage of Cretaceous toothed pterodactyloids
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 Pterosaur (Pterodactyloidea: Azhdarchidae) from the Upper Cretaceous of Morocco
A new azhdarchid pterosaur is described, Alanqa saharica nov. sp.
A new Lepisosteidae (Actinopterygii, Ginglymodi) from the Cretaceous of the Kem Kem Beds, southern Morocco
Lepisosteids or gars constitute a very special neopterygian group, with seven living species in two genera: Lepisosteus and Atractosteus. They live in freshwaters from the eastern part of North
A new toothed pterosaur (Pterodactyloidea: Anhangueridae) from the Early Cretaceous Romualdo Formation, NE Brazil.
The lateral surface of the premaxillary crest shows grooves and tridimensional structures that may have housed blood vessels in the Anhangueridae from the Araripe Basin described.
First North American Occurrence of the Toothed Pteranodontoid Pterosaur Cimoliopterus
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.
A new pterosaur (Pterodactyloidea, Tapejaridae) from the Early Cretaceous Jiufotang Formation of western Liaoning, China and its implications for biostratigraphy
In this article we describe a new and exceptionally well-preserved pterodactyloid pterosaur,Sinopterus dongi gen. et sp. nov. from the Jiufotang Formation in western Liaoning Province of northeast
Cranial osteology and phylogenetic relationships of Hamadasuchus rebouli (Crocodyliformes: Mesoeucrocodylia) from the Cretaceous of Morocco
A detailed description of the skull and part of the mandible of the crocodyliform reptile Hamadasuchus rebouli from the Kem Kem beds of south-eastern Morocco is presented, lending further support to the biogeographical hypothesis that faunal connections existed between Africa and South America well into mid-Cretaceous times.
New toothed flying reptile from Asia: close similarities between early Cretaceous pterosaur faunas from China and Brazil
The new species is closely related to a rare taxon from the Brazilian Crato Formation, posing an interesting paleobiogeographic problem and supporting the hypothesis that at least some early Cretaceous pterosaur clades, such as the Tapejaridae and the Anhangueridae, might have originated in Asia.
