CHINESE ANUROGNATHIDS



Hello all. Just a quick note to announce...

Unwin, D.M., Lu, J. and Bakhurina, N.N. 2000. On the systematic and 
stratigraphic significance of pterosaurs from the Lower Cretaceous 
Yixian Formation (Jehol Group) of Liaoning, China. _Mitt. Mus. 
Nat.kd. Berl., Geowiss. Reihe_ 3: 181-206.

This is the paper that shows that _Dendrorhynchoides_ should be 
assigned to the Anurognathidae and that _Eosipterus_ is probably a 
ctenochasmatine ctenochasmatid. Includes a review of all Lower 
Cretaceous pterosaur records. Discussion of the idea that the long tail 
of _Dendrorhynchoides_ is a fake.
