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
The taxonomy and phylogeny of Diopecephalus kochi (Wagner, 1837) and ‘Germanodactylus rhamphastinus’ (Wagner, 1851)
Geometric morphometric analysis of prepubes and a cladistic analysis of the Pterosauria elucidate plesiomorphic and apomorphic conditions for basal Jurassic pterodactyloids.
The osteology of Ferrodraco lentoni, an anhanguerid pterosaur from the mid-Cretaceous of Australia
ABSTRACT Ferrodraco lentoni, an anhanguerid from the Upper Cretaceous Winton Formation of northeast Australia, is the most complete Australian pterosaur described to date, represented by a partial
First Pterosaur Post-Cranial Remains from the Lower Cretaceous Lohan Cura Formation (Albian) of Patagonia, Argentina
In this contribution, we present the first pterosaur post-cranial bone from the Lohan Cura Formation (Albian) of the Cerro de los Leones locality (Picun Leufu, Neuquen Province). The material is an
Pterodactylus scolopaciceps Meyer, 1860 (Pterosauria, Pterodactyloidea) from the Upper Jurassic of Bavaria, Germany: The Problem of Cryptic Pterosaur Taxa in Early Ontogeny
A cladistic analysis demonstrates that Aerodactylus is distinct from PterodactYLus, but close to Cycnorhamphus Seeley, 1870, Ardeadactylu Bennett, 2013a and Aurorazhdarcho Frey, Meyer and Tischlinger, 2011, consequently the new genus AerodACTylus was erected to accommodate it.
An Unusual Pterosaur Specimen (Pterodactyloidea, ?Azhdarchoidea) from the Early Cretaceous Romualdo Formation of Brazil, and the Evolution of the Pterodactyloid Palate
The palatal anatomy of Pterodactyloidea is reassessed, revealing an intriguing variety of morphotypes and evolutionary trends, some of them described here for the first time.
Rediscovery of the Hesperornis regalis Marsh 1871 Holotype Locality Indicates an Earlier Stratigraphic Occurrence
The type specimen of a large, flightless marine bird, Hesperornis regalis, was collected by O.C. Marsh in 1871. Due to the practices of the time, and the lack of accurate maps, the type locality was
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.
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.
