Numerous footprints of dinosaurs, pterosaurs and birds, together with arthropod tracks, have been discovered in the upper Cretaceous Uhangri Formation which crops out along the south-western coastline of South Korea. This ichnofauna contains the first pterosaur tracks reported from Asia. The digitigrade tridactyl manus impressions exhibit features of a typical pterosaur hand print. The pes impressions, however, show features that are different from pterosaur footprints reported previously… 
New pterosaur tracks from the Hasandong Formation (Lower Cretaceous) of Hadong County, South Korea
In 2004, fifty new pterosaur tracks were discovered in the Hasandong Formation (Lower Cretaceous), South Korea. They are preserved as natural casts on the surface of an isolated dark grey mudstone
A new pterosaur tracksite from the Lower Cretaceous of Wuerho, Junggar Basin, China: inferring the first putative pterosaur trackmaker
The high density and varied sizes of the Wuerho small pterosaur tracks suggest that many pterosaurs of different ages lived in Huangyangquan Reservoir tracksite 1 area, and the trackmakers may have had gregarious behavior.
Enigmatic Giant Pterosaur Tracks and Associated Ichnofauna from the Cretaceous of Korea: Implication for the Bipedal Locomotion of Pterosaurs
Enigmatic tracks and dinosaur trackways from lacustrine margin sediments of the Lower Cretaceous Haman Formation of the southern coast of Korea represent a new ichnospecies. Trackways with large,
New Early Cretaceous Pterosaur‐Bird Track Assemblage from Xinjiang, China: Palaeoethology and Palaeoenvironment
A pterosaur-bird track assemblage from a sandstone-siltstone-mudstone sequence of the Lower Cretaceous Tugulu Group of Xinjiang comprises the first pterosaur track record from this province and the
Late Cretaceous ornithopod-dominated, theropod, and pterosaur track assemblages from the Nanxiong Basin, China: New discoveries, ichnotaxonomy, and paleoecology
Re-examination of the Late Cretaceous Yangmeikeng tracksite, in the Zhutian Formation (Nanxiong Group) near Nanxiong, Guangdong Province, China, has led to the documentation of over 30 vertebrate
Theropod, avian, pterosaur, and arthropod tracks from the uppermost Cretaceous Las Encinas Formation, Coahuila, northeastern Mexico, and their significance for the end-Cretaceous mass extinction
Two unique localities that combine an unusual diversity of avian, pterosaurian, and dinosaur tracks as well as trails of arthropods were recently discovered by us in uppermost Maastrichtian
Pterosaur track assemblages from the Upper Jurassic (lower Kimmeridgian) intertidal deposits of Poland: Linking ichnites to potential trackmakers
Abstract Two distinct tetrapod track assemblages, dominated by pterosaur traces, are reported from Upper Jurassic (lower Kimmeridgian, Hypselocyclum Zone) tidal flat carbonate deposits exposed in
A juvenile ornithopod tracksite from the Lower Cretaceous Haman Formation, South Korea
Abstract A new dinosaur tracksite with footprints of non-adult ornithopods was discovered from the Lower Cretaceous Haman Formation (Albian), Gunbuk District, Haman County, South Gyeongsang Province
A Reassessment of the Pteraichnus Ichnospecies from the Early Cretaceous of Soria Province, Spain
ABSTRACT The Cameros Basin, distributed over Soria, La Rioja and Burgos provinces in NE Spain, is apparently one of the richest sources of pterosaur footprints, with six ichnospecies of Pteraichnus
The first non-pterodactyloid pterosaurian trackways and the terrestrial ability of non-pterodactyloid pterosaurs
Abstract New discoveries on the ichnological site known as “the Pterosaur Beach of Crayssac” (lower Tithonian, Upper Jurassic; south-western France) answer the question of terrestrial capabilities of


The fossil trackway Pteraichnus is pterosaurian, not crocodilian: Implications for the global distribution of pterosaur tracks
There has been much confusion regarding the fossil footprint record of pterosaurs, with both non‐pterosaurian tracks assigned to pterosaurs, and pterosaurian tracks assigned to non‐pterosaurian
Pterosaur tracks from the Purbeck Limestone Formation of Dorset, England
Purbeckopus pentadactylus , an unusual vertebrate track, is found in the Intermarine Member of the Purbeck Limestone Formation (Lower Cretaceous) of southern England. Only three slabs of
An overview of the pterosaur assemblage from the Cambridge Greensand (Cretaceous) of Eastern England
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.
On the systematic and stratigraphic significance of pterosaurs from the Lower Cretaceous Yixian Formation (Jehol Group) of Liaoning, China
Abstract. A reassessment of the systematic relationships of pterosaurs from the Lower Cretaceous Yixian Formation of Liaoning Province, China, shows that Dendrorhynchoides should be reassigned to the
A large pterodactyloid pterosaur from the Two Medicine Formation (Campanian) of Montana
This is probably the second largest pterosaur yet known of Campanian age; its size is intermediate between the largest Pteranodon and Quetzalcoatlus northropi.
A survey of pterosaurs from the Jurassic and Cretaceous of the former Soviet Union and Mongolia
Remains of pterosaurs, the dominant aerial vertebrate throughout much of the Mesozoic were, until relatively recently, almost exclusively known from marine and marginal marine sediments of western
A long-necked pterosaur (Pterodactyloidea, Azhdarchidae) from the Upper Cretaceous of Valencia, Spain
Fragmentary remains, including cervical vertebrae and limb bones, of a large pterosaur from the Upper Cretaceous of Tous, province of Valencia (Spain), are described. The material was recovered from
The fossil trackway Pteraichnus; not pterosaurian, but crocodilian
Experimental work on trackways coupled with considerations of limb kinematics and substrate conditions will permit the most robust inferences about paleoichnologic trackmakers, and will thus maximize the utility of fossil footprint data.
Pterosaur tracks and the terrestrial ability of pterosaurs
Pteraichnus and Pteraicnus-like tracks show that, when grounded, some, perhaps all, pterosaurs were plantigrade, quadrupedal, and had a semi-erect stance and gait, consistent with some functional interpretations of pterosaur anatomy and resolves a long-running debate regarding the terrestrial ability of this group.
On Zhejiangopterus and the relationships of pterodactyloid pterosaurs
It is proposed that Zhejiangopterus be reassigned to the Azhdarchidae, a new, long‐necked, Late Cretaceous pterosaur from China that has been assigned to the Nyctosauridae.
