Because they had in their hands the original specimen, they are
professional paleontologists working on pterosaurs of Chapada do Araripe
since 1980 (those who described Tapejara and Tupuxuara, among others), they
have a big pterosaur collection in the National Museum of Rio to make
comparisons, and probably because the margin of the bone is not broken.

Is it enough?
