Abstract The Lower Jurassic (Toarcian) pterosaur Parapsicephalus purdoni Newton, 1888 from the Whitby Mudstone Formation of North Yorkshire is known from a three-dimensionally preserved skull with a three-dimensional endocast of the brain. Since Newton’s original description, its taxonomic status has been contentious. Several cladistic studies have placed it within either Dimorphodontidae or Rhamphorhynchidae. Some investigators have suggested that it is a junior synonym of the Toarcian… 

Pterosauria of the Great Oolite Group (Bathonian, Middle Jurassic) of Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire, England

The current understanding of UK Middle Jurassic pterosaur taxonomy is under-developed, leading to it being previously considered a time of low diversity. This is despite the presence of a productive

Caelestiventus hanseni gen. et sp. nov. extends the desert-dwelling pterosaur record back 65 million years

A new species of Late Triassic pterosaur, Caelestiventus hanseni, predates all other known desert pterosaurs by 65 million years, showing that from an early point in their evolution, pter dinosaurs were widely geographically distributed and capable of dwelling in harsh environments.

Systematic reassessment of the first Jurassic pterosaur from Thailand

Abstract A pterosaur humerus (PRC 64) from the Upper Jurassic of Thailand was initially assigned to the Azhdarchoidea, an important clade of edentulous Cretaceous pterodactyloid pterosaurs. Here it

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.

A new rhamphorhynchid (Pterosauria: Rhamphorhynchidae) from the Middle/Upper Jurassic of Qinglong, Hebei Province, China

New genus and species of long-tailed pterosaur Qinglongopterus demonstrates that the highly derived skeletal morphology of Rhamphorhynchus, known only from the latest Jurassic (Tithonian) of Europe, had already appeared by the start of the Late Jurassic.

A µCT ray-generated virtual endocast shows that the new pterosaur exhibits a mosaic of plesiomorphic and derived traits of the inner ear and neuroanatomy that fills an important gap between those of non-monofenestratan breviquartossans (Rhamphorhynchidae) and derived pterodactyloids.
