Thalassodromeus



Hi all,
 
There is nothing new about this genus of pterosaur, at least, not if any of you had acces to David Peter's site. On his page about the genus Tupuxuara before the major update, there was an image showing two specimens of this other Brazilian genus; one was a female, the other was a male. The male skull is the skull now assigned to Thalassodromeus, which seems a plausible option. Too bad we are only dealing with a skull here, so that the rest of the skeleton cannot be compared to the postcranial material of Tupuxuara to see if David Peter was right when he assigned it to that genus. Any ideas why or why not it should be assigned to Tupuxuara?
 
Cheers,
