A fragmentary specimen of pterosaur originally assigned to the genus Pterodaustro Bonaparte, 1970 is reassessed. The presence of a sagittal dorsal cranial crest on a fragment of nasopreorbital arcade with linear vertical trabeculae and the occurrence of alveolar protuberances on the os dentale indicate the new specimen has similarities with crested pterodactyloid pterosaurs of the family Ctenochasmatidae, and with members of the Dsungaripteridae. The presence of alveolar protuberances allows us… 
A new species of tapejarid pterosaur with soft-tissue head crest
Abstract Two specimens of a tapejarid pterosaur (Pterodactyloidea, Tapejaridae) are described as representing a new species. Both specimens show evidence for soft tissues preserved in association
Discovery of the largest pterosaur from South America
Abstract A giant humerus (450 mm total length) belonging to one of the largest pterosaur recorded in South America is described. The specimen (UNCUYO-LD 350) was discovered in the Upper Cretaceous
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.
Description of Coloborhynchus spielbergi sp. nov. (Pterodactyloidea) from the Albian (Lower Cretaceous) of Brazil.
A new species of pterosaur, Coloborhynchus spielbergi sp. nov. (Pterodactyloidea), from the Romualdo Member (Albian) of the Santana Formation is described. The type consists of the skull, mandible
A New Monofenestratan Pterosaur from the Kimmeridge Clay Formation (Kimmeridgian, Upper Jurassic) of Dorset, England
A specimen of slender skulled monofenestratan pterosaur from the Upper Jurassic Kimmeridge Clay Formation of Dorset, UK, is referred to the new genus and species Cuspicephalus scarfi. The dentition
New specimens of Pterosauria (Reptilia) with soft parts with implications for pterosaurian anatomy and locomotion
Abstract New specimens of pterosaurs with soft-part preservation from the Solnhofen Lithographic Limestone (S Germany) and the Crato Formation (northeastern Brazil) yield hitherto unknown and
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 dsungaripteroid pterosaur from the Lower Cretaceous of the southern Junggar Basin, north-west China
Abstract A new dsungaripteroid pterosaur, Lonchognathosaurus acutirostris gen. et sp. nov., is erected for the anterior part of a skull from the Lower Cretaceous Lianmuxin Formation (Upper Tugulu
A taxonomic revision of Noripterus complicidens and Asian members of the Dsungaripteridae
Abstract After being inaccessible for a number of years, the holotype and other specimens of the dsungaripterid pterodactyloid pterosaur Noripterus complicidens are again available for study.
Ctenochasmatid pterosaurs from Early Cretaceous deposits in Chile
Fragmentary pterosaur remains from the Early Cretaceous Quebrada Monardes Formation of northern Chile are assigned to Ctenochasmatidae. Although not immediately referable to recognised genera, they


A pteranodontid pterosaur from the Early Cretaceous of Peru, with comments on the relationships of Cretaceous pterosaurs
The first occurrence of a pterosaur fossil from the Early Cretaceous of Peru is reported. The specimen consists of a nearly complete right humerus of a pteranodontid pterosaur preserved in three
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.
A new pterodactyloid pterosaur from the Kimmeridgian of the Cap de la Hève (Normandy, France)
A pterosaur specimen, consisting of the associated anterior portions of upper and lower jaws, is reported from the upper Kimmeridgian Argiles d'Octeville, in the cliffs of the Cap de la Heve, near Le
On a Pterosaur Jaw from the Upper Jurassic of Tendaguru (Tanzania)
The pterosaur assemblage from Tendaguru contains a "rhamphorhynchoid", as well as the dsungaripteroid, and is similar in its systematic composition to other Late Jurassic pterosaurs from Laurasia, suggesting that the group was already well established by this time.
