Here is the original reference:

Sharov, A. G., 1970. "Svoyeobraznaya reptiliya iz Nizhnevo Triasa Fergany [An
unusual reptile from the Lower Triassic of Fergana]," Paleontologicheskiy
Zhurnal 1970(1): 127-130 [in Russian; English translation in Paleontological
Journal 1970(1): 112-116].

And a follow-up study (hope the accented characters in the titles pass
through e-mail):

[They got to me but I replaced them with "e"'s because I know at least
 a half dozen other mailers would have barfed on them.  -- MR ]

insignis, reptile enigmatique du Trias superieur d'Asie centrale [A new
interpretation of Longisquama insignis, an enigmatic reptile from the Upper
Triassic of Central Asia]," Comptes Rendus Academie des Sciences du Paris
305, Serie II: 65-70.

_Longisquama_ made the cover of the _Scientific American_ issue that carried
Bakker's famous "Dinosaur Renaissance" article:
