ABSTRACT Records of flying Jurassic reptiles are very scarce in the Southern Hemisphere. Upper Jurassic pterosaurs have been discovered in marine Tithonian sediments of the Vaca Muerta Formation, in the Neuquén Basin, Patagonia, Argentina. Only four specimens are known so far: the first from Arroyo Picún Leufú, and the other three from the lithographic limestones of Los Catutos. Here, we update knowledge of Late Jurassic pterosaurs from northwest Patagonia. We revise the diagnosis and… 
New fossil record of a Jurassic pterosaur from Neuquen Basin, Vaca Muerta Formation, Argentina
Abstract Discoveries of Jurassic pterosaurs in the Southern Hemisphere are extremely unusual. In Argentina, pterosaurs from the Upper Jurassic (Tithonian) have only been found in the Northwest of
First record of a Late Jurassic rhamphorhynchine pterosaur from Gondwana
We describe partial remains of a non-pterodactyloid pterosaur from Upper Jurassic levels of the Atacama Desert in northern Chile. The material includes a left humerus, a possible dorsal vertebra, and
A Late Jurassic-?earliest Cretaceous ctenochasmatid (Pterosauria, Pterodactyloidea): The first report of pterosaurs from Uruguay
Abstract The Tacuarembo Formation contains a faunal assemblage with some taxa clearly indicative of a Late Jurassic-Early Cretaceous age. In this context, the first remains of Uruguayan pterosaurs
Reptiles from Lithographic Limestones of the Los Catutos Member (Middle—Upper Tithonian), Neuquén Province, Argentina: An Essay on Its Taxonomic Composition and Preservation in an Environmental and Geographic Context
Abstract. The lithographic limestones of the Los Catutos Member (Vaca Muerta Formation, Neuquén Province, Argentina) (late middle—early late Tithonian) bear a great diversity of marine reptiles.
Lower Cretaceous pterosaurs from Colombia
Abstract The global fossil record of lowermost Cretaceous pterosaurs is meagre, and much of the material is fragmentary. Here we report three occurrences of pterosaurs from the Rosablanca Formation
A new ctenochasmatid (Pterosauria, Pterodactyloidea) from the late Jurassic of Uruguay
Abstract A new ctenochasmatid pterosaur from the Tacuarembo Formation (Late Jurassic of Uruguay), Tacuadactylus luciae gen. et sp. nov. is described, based on a rostrum fragment with spatulated tip
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
Biotic and environmental dynamics through the Late Jurassic–Early Cretaceous transition: evidence for protracted faunal and ecological turnover
TLDR
These patterns suggest that different extinction selectivity and ecological processes were operating between marine and terrestrial ecosystems, which were ultimately important in determining the fates of many key groups, as well as the origins of many major extant lineages.

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.
A NEW PTEROSAUR FROM THE LIAONING PROVINCE OF CHINA, THE PHYLOGENY OF THE PTERODACTYLOIDEA, AND CONVERGENCE IN THEIR CERVICAL VERTEBRAE
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis of a new pterosaur from the Early Cretaceous of Liaoning Province of China and the Pterodactyloidea reveals that the characters of the elongate azhdarchid vertebrae appeared independently in both groups, demonstrating that the homoplastic character states present in these two taxa were acquired in a different order in their respective lineages.

Abstract. A phylogenetic analysis indicates that the Tapejaridae is a monophyletic group of pterodactyloid pterosaurs, diagnosed by the following synapomorphies: premaxillary sagittal crest that
On a Pterosaur Jaw from the Upper Jurassic of Tendaguru (Tanzania)
TLDR
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.
