Brasileodactylus



Veldmeijer, A.J. , 2003. Preliminary description of a skull and wing of a Brazilian Lower Cretaceous (Santana Formation; Aptian-Albian) pterosaur (Pterodactyloidea) in the collection of the AMNH. 1-13.

Abstract:

The skull and wing of a pterodactyloid pterosaur from the Brazilian Lower Cretaceous (Albian) in the collection of the American Museum of Natural History, New York, USA displays the general anatomical features characteristic for these pterosaurs and is shortly described. The largely embedded skeletal remains are tentatively assigned to Brasileodactylus. More precise classification, other than genus, proved not possible.
