re Sinopterus



Re: Sinopterus

Just came across the JPEG's for this new pterosaur from China.

Looks like it has a skull that is remarkably similar to that of Tapejara, 
and skeletal proportions that also match fairly closely to those of 
Tapejara and Tupuxuara (e.g. a relatively long wingfinger, and relatively 
short metatarsus) so I reckon it must be a tapejarid. First record 
outside Gondwanaland too...
