<< TACKED-ON QUESTION: Anyone know what the type species of _Pterodactylus_
It's _Pterodactylus antiquus_, originally _Ornithocephalus antiquus_ von
Soemmering, 1812, referred by Lydekker in 1888 to the "genus" _Ptero-dactyle_
Cuvier, 1809 (respelled _Pterodactylus_ by Rafinesque in 1815).
_Pterodactylus_ had no formally named type species until Lydekker's referral.
