Re: Pterosaur Help

Well, I guess you're right, the fact is, every time I look at my list, I
find one or two genera I need some information on. It does seem like I might
end up needing information on all genera. I never realized that I would need
this much help on my pterosaur species list.

> No offense, but it sounds like you want all the Pterosaurs. First you just
started with Ornithochirus, then you keep moving on to all the others. Why
not just say that in the first place? I'm working on huge taxa list, but I
don't know when or where it will be published, maybe New Mexico some time
next year. It's a lot of hard work (and others like George who got me
started on the other Paleozoic and Mesozoic tetrapods) should freely give
out the information gathered (which can't really be found anywhere else) or
should we get some compensation for it.

distribute my lists (Name, holotype, locality, horizon, material and
referred material, and hopefully as the years go by fully illustrated) would
either be on a CD or I'm thinking a pay web site. Would the latter be
feasible for laypersons and scientists?
