Pterosaurs from the Late Cretaceous of Angola

Here, we describe the first pterosaur remains from Angola, an assemblage of fourteen bones from the Lower Maastrichtian marine deposits of Bentiaba, Namibe Province. One new species is introduced,



New light on Late Cretaceous pterosaur material from Montana

ABSTRACT Remains of a pterodactyloid pterosaur wing from the Two Medicine Formation (Campanian) of Montana were described by Padian (1984). The bones were preserved in a limestone concretion, which

New material of Chaoyangopterus (Pterosauria: Pterodactyloidea) from the Early Cretaceous Jiufotang Formation of western Liaoning, China

The fossil shows that Chaoyangopterus possessed moderately elongate mid-cervical vertebrae with low, blade-like neural spines and lacked lateral pneumatic foramina, which provides a new scope for reviewing the evolution of the family Azhdarchidae.

The pterosaurian remains from the Grünbach Formation (Campanian, Gosau Group) of Austria: a reappraisal of ‘Ornithocheirus buenzeli’

Abstract The fragmentary pterosaur material from the Campanian Grünbach Formation (Gosau Group) of Muthmannsdorf (Austria), previously identified as Ornithocheirus buenzeli Bunzel, 1871, is revised.

New material of dsungaripterid pterosaurs (Pterosauria: Pterodactyloidea) from western Mongolia and its palaeoecological implications

New material from the Early Cretaceous of Tatal, western Mongolia, allows the diagnoses of Dsungaripteridae and Noripterus to be amended and may imply that they occupied distinct ecological niches.

Mistralazhdarcho Maggii, Gen. Et Sp. Nov., A New Azhdarchid Pterosaur from the Upper Cretaceous of Southeastern France

ABSTRACT A series of pterosaur bones from the Upper Cretaceous (Campanian) of Velaux (Bouches-du-Rhône, southeastern France) is described. This material, including both cranial and postcranial

A review of two large Jurassic pterodactyloid specimens from the Solnhofen of southern Germany

Biometric observations of the long bones suggest that they may be conspecific and together form one of two distinct skeletal configurations known within “Pterodactylus” grandis, suggesting the presence of a potentially novel species.

A New Mosasaurine from the Maastrichtian (Upper Cretaceous) Phosphates of Morocco and Its Implications for Mosasaurine Systematics

ABSTRACT A new mosasaur, Eremiasaurus heterodontus, gen. et sp. nov., from the Maastrichtian phosphates of Morocco is described based on the basis of two specimens: one consisting of a nearly

Cryodrakon boreas, gen. et sp. nov., a Late Cretaceous Canadian Azhdarchid Pterosaur

ABSTRACT Azhdarchid pterosaurs have been known since 1972 from upper Campanian deposits of Alberta, Canada. Originally represented by only very fragmentary remains tentatively assigned to the genus
