New isolated pterodactyloid bones from the Toolebuc Formation are described. The first one consists of a complete wing metacarpal 212 mm long, representing an individual with an estimated wing span of 4 m. Small depressions on the anterior surface are present and represent tooth marks showing that this specimen was subjected to scavenging prior to fossilization. The other bone consists of a three-dimensionally preserved cervical vertebra lacking most of the neural arch. The specimens are… Expand
Short note on a Pteranodontoid pterosaur (Pterodactyloidea) from western Queensland, Australia.
TLDR
This work redescribes this specimen, showing that it cannot be referred to one of the aforementioned genera, but represents a new species of Pteranodontoid, here named Aussiedraco molnari gen. et sp. Expand
Isolated teeth of Anhangueria (Pterosauria: Pterodactyloidea) from the Lower Cretaceous of Lightning Ridge, New South Wales, Australia
TLDR
The morphology of the teeth and their presence in the estuarine- and lacustrine-influenced Griman Creek Formation is likely indicative of similar life habits of the tooth bearer to other members of the pterodactyloid clade Anhangueria. Expand
A New Azhdarchid Pterosaur from the Late Cretaceous of the Transylvanian Basin, Romania: Implications for Azhdarchid Diversity and Distribution
TLDR
A new taxon of medium-sized (wing span ca. 3 m) azhdarchid pterosaur from the Upper Cretaceous Transylvanian Basin of Romania is described, comprising a partially articulated series of vertebrae and associated forelimb bones. Expand
Ferrodraco lentoni gen. et sp. nov., a new ornithocheirid pterosaur from the Winton Formation (Cenomanian–lower Turonian) of Queensland, Australia
TLDR
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. Expand
Reappraisal of Mythunga camara Molnar & Thulborn, 2007 (Pterosauria, Pterodactyloidea, Anhangueria) from the upper Albian Toolebuc Formation of Queensland, Australia
TLDR
The classification of Mythunga within Anhangueria indicates that this clade was widespread, and perhaps achieved a global distribution by the late Early Cretaceous. Expand
Revision of Dugaldia emmilta (Teleostei, Ichthyodectiformes) from the Toolebuc Formation, Albian of Australia, with comments on the jaw mechanics
ABSTRACT Dugaldia emmilta is a teleostean fish found in the late Albian Toolebuc Formation in Queensland, Australia. In the original description, D. emmilta was attributed to the Neoteleostei becauseExpand
On a new crested pterodactyloid from the Early Cretaceous of the Iberian Peninsula and the radiation of the clade Anhangueria
TLDR
A new genus and species of toothed pterodactyloid pterosaur from the Barremian of the Iberian Peninsula is described that shows a close and rather unexpected relationship with Hamipterus tianshanensis from China and suggests that the clade Anhangueria has clear ancestral ties in eastern Laurasia. Expand
Remains of a Late Cretaceous pterosaur from the Molecap Greensand of Western Australia
Pterosaur remains are very rare in Australasia and especially in Upper Cretaceous strata. Thus, the discovery of a jaw fragment from the Cenomanian–Coniacian Molecap Greensand near Gingin in WesternExpand
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. Expand

AN INCOMPLETE PTEROSAUR SKULL FROM THE CRETACEOUS OF NORTH-CENTRAL QUEENSLAND, AUSTRALIA 1
TLDR
The snout was apparently hollow with a boxlike internal structure, supporting the characterization of pterosaurs as 'optical illusions', and is assigned to the new genus and species, Mythunga camara gen.nov. Expand
On the pterosaur remains from the Río Belgrano Formation (Barremian), Patagonian Andes of Argentina.
TLDR
The oldest record of the Anhangueridae, previously limited to the Aptian/Albian, is extended to the Barremian, and the Argentinean material is preserved in three dimensions, indicating that the site situated near the Estancia Río Roble has a great potential for new and well preserved specimens.

A primitive istiodactylid pterosaur (Pterodactyloidea) from the Jiufotang Formation (Early Cretaceous), northeast China
TLDR
The palatal anatomy of Hongshanopterus lacustris agrees with previous hypothesis that considers Istiodactylidae more closely related to the Anhangueridae than to Pteranodon. Expand
On two pterosaur humeri from the Tendaguru beds (Upper Jurassic, Tanzania).
TLDR
The combination of the morphological features of the deltopectoral crest not observed in other pterosaurs suggests that this specimen belongs to a new dsungaripteroid taxon, which could be referred to the Archaeopterodactyloidea. Expand

New information on the Tapejaridae (Pterosauria, Pterodactyloidea) and discussion of the relationships of this clade
Abstract. A phylogenetic analysis indicates that the Tapejaridae is a monophyletic group of pterodactyloid pterosaurs, diagnosed by the following synapomorphies: premaxillary sagittal crest thatExpand
