TEE first Pterodactyle rliscovered in this country was found by the writer, in 1870, in the Upper Cretaceous of Kansas; and durillg the next year two other species were obtained in the same region.* These three species were referred provisionally by the writer to the genus Pterodactylu8 of Cuvier, with which the remains then described essentially agreed. An examination of the lal'ge series of specimens of this order now in the Yale Museum, shows, however, that some of these fossils possess… 
Comments on the Pteranodontidae (Pterosauria, Pterodactyloidea) with the description of two new species.
Based on several cranial features, some specimens previously referred to the genus Pteranodon are re-evaluated leading to the recognition of the following species, two of which new that are described here: PTeranodon longiceps, Geosternbergia sternbergi, Geosterbergia maiseyi sp.
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 Western
A new specimen of nyctosaurid pterosaur, cf. Muzquizopteryx sp. from the Late Cretaceous of northeast Mexico
A second nyctosaurid pterosaur from the Late Cretaceous laminated limestone deposits of northeast Mexico is described and found to be coincident with that of Muzquizopteryx coahuilensis, confirming it as the oldest nyctorosaurs discovered to date.
Morphology and Taxonomy of Quetzalcoatlus Lawson 1975 (Pterodactyloidea: Azhdarchoidea)
ABSTRACT Quetzalcoatlus is the largest flying organism ever known and one of the most familiar pterosaurs to the public. Despite a half century of interest, it remains very incompletely described.
New isolated pterodactyloid bones from the Albian Toolebuc Formation (western Queensland, Australia) with comments on the Australian pterosaur fauna
The record of the Australian pterosaurs is reviewed here and represents the known southern distributional limit for Cretaceous pter dinosaurs, arguing against some older ideas of a more geographically restricted range for these flying reptiles.

Phylogenetic analysis of all Texas pterosaurs that can be coded for more than one character confirms that these species are distinct from others and occupy phylogenetic positions close to their original classifications.

Abstract The immense size of many pterosaurs is now well known to academics and laymen alike, but truly enormous forms with wingspans more than twice those of the largest modern birds were not
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.

Abstract Remains of a pteranodontid pterosaur are recorded in the basal Austin Group of North Texas. The specimen described here comprises a partial left wing and strongly resembles Pteranodon
