A new complete and fully articulated specimen of the anurognathid pterosaurAnurognathus ammoni from the Upper Jurassic Solnhofen Limestone of southern Germany provides new information about the species. The skull is broader than long and quite tall. The naris and antorbital fenestra are both small and anteriorly placed, whereas the orbit is very large. The palatal elements are slender struts of bone separating large openings. The tail is short, but is neither pygostyle-like nor like that of… 
The toothless pterosaur Jidapterus edentus (Pterodactyloidea: Azhdarchoidea) from the Early Cretaceous Jehol Biota and its paleoecological implications
TLDR
The osteology of Jidapterus edentus further supports the close relationship of the Chaoyangopteridae with the Azhdarchidae in sharing a high RI value and reduced and mildly-curved pedal unguals, and it also implies a possible paleoecological similarity in their terrestrial capability.
Short note on a non-pterodactyloid pterosaur from Upper Jurassic deposits of Inner Mongolia, China
TLDR
A new genus and species of pterosaur, Daohugoupterus delicatusgen, from the Jurassic Yanliao Biota, consisting of a partial skeleton with soft tissue, is reported, differing from Jeholopterus and Pterorhynchus.
A New Non-Pterodactyloid Pterosaur from the Late Jurassic of Southern Germany
TLDR
A new genus of non-pterodactyloid pterosaur based on an extremely well preserved fossil of a young juvenile: Bellubrunnus rothgaengeri is described, heralds from a newly explored locality that is older than the classic Solnhofen beds.
The soft tissue of Jeholopterus (Pterosauria, Anurognathidae, Batrachognathinae) and the structure of the pterosaur wing membrane
TLDR
Although the understanding of the mechanical properties of the wing membrane is hampered by the lack of knowledge regarding the composition of the actinofibrils, the configuration observed in Jeholopterus might have allowed subtle changes in the membrane tension during flight, resulting in more control of flight movements and the organization of the wings when the animal was at rest.
New Insights into the Skull of Istiodactylus latidens (Ornithocheiroidea, Pterodactyloidea)

TLDR
An overlooked jaw fragment of NHMUK R3877 is redescribed and used to revise the skull reconstruction of I. latidens, suggesting a much shorter skull than previously supposed, along with a relatively tall orbital region and proportionally slender maxilla, a feature documented in the early 20th century but ignored by all skull reconstructions of this species.
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.
An unusual long-tailed pterosaur with elongated neck from western Liaoning of China.
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis including most non-pterodactyloid pterosaurs shows that Wukongopterus lii gen. et sp.
New Interpretation of the Palate of Pterosaurs
TLDR
It is indicated that in basal pterosaurs the pterygo–ectopterygoid fenestra existed caudal to the suborbital fenESTra, which became confluent with the adductor chamber in pterodactyloids thereby increasing the relative size of the adduction chamber and hence the mass of the jaw adductors.
A New Rhamphorhynchid Pterosaur from the Upper Jurassic of Xinjiang, China, and the Phylogenetic Relationships of Basal Pterosaurs
TLDR
Sericipterus wucaiwanensis, Angustinaripterus longicephalus, Harpactognathus gentryii represent a clade of large pterosaurs that likely lived in the terrestrial settings in which they preserved and are proposed to be widespread among the non-pterodactyloids.
A New Non-Pterodactyloid Pterosaur from Qinglong County, Hebei Province of China
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis suggests that Changchengopterus is a basal member of rhamphorhynchoids, and more closely related to Dorygnathus than to other Rhamphorhychoids.

A nearly completely articulated rhamphorhynchoid pterosaur with exceptionally well-preserved wing membranes and “hairs” from Inner Mongolia, northeast China
TLDR
The “hair” of Jeholopterus bears some resemblance to the hair-like integumental structures of the feathered dinosaur Sinosauropteryx although there is yet no direct evidence to argue for or against their homology.
Pterosaur diversity and faunal turnover in Cretaceous terrestrial ecosystems in China
TLDR
Two new pterosaurs that are referred to European groups previously unknown in deposits of northeastern China are reported, showing a wide range of groups including both primitive and derived forms that are not matched by any other deposit in the world.
The ontogeny of Pteranodon and other pterosaurs
TLDR
The bone of limb-bone shafts of immature individuals is fibro-lamellar bone, which suggests that they grew rapidly to adult size, and the extensive fusion of the mature skeleton suggest that Pteranodon had determinate growth.

TLDR
It is shown that the five nominal species of Rhamphorhynchus were based on characters related to size and ontogeny, and represent juveniles, subadults, and adults of a single large species.

PRELIMINARY RESULTS OF A PHYLOGENETIC ANALYSIS OF THE PTEROSAURS FROM WESTERN LIAONING AND SURROUNDING AREAS
TLDR
Preliminary results show that Liaoning pterosaurs belong to Anurognathidae, but the clade formed by Boreopterus and Feilongus is basal to other ornithocheirids, and three Chinese tapejarids form a monophyletic group.

TLDR
The pattern of pterosaur evolution suggested by the results of this analysis is broadly similar to traditional ideas, but has greater resolution, more complexity and reveals several previously unrecognized ‘events’.
