Whoa, hold on here. That is incorrect. As Chiappe (1996; Munchner

Alvarenga & Bonaparte (1992), it is not known whether there was a
pygostyle." I have examined all of the known specimens and I concur; you
cannot tell. There are 5 or more free caudals; that's all you can say
about the tail,...
The rather tall caudal neural spines, though, suggests that _Patagopteryx_'s
tail might be long rather than short.
