a great little "narrow wing" pterosaur specimen



This specimen of Diopecephalus (aka Pterodactylus) longicollum
(mislabeled here as "Cynorhamphus" (sic) from the AMNH is a great
example of the narrow wing membrane completely disconnected from the
hind limbs. Just found it today.

Hard  to see the bones for all the soft tissue preservation here.
