South American Pterosaurs
I recently read the paper describing _Coloborhynchus spielbergi_, and I have
a few questions to ask:
1) How many species of _Anhanguera_ are recognised? _Anhanguera
blittersdorffi_ & _Anhanguera santanae_? (The paper does mention that _A.
santanae_ may be a juvenile _Coloborhynchus_)
2) _Anhanguera piscator_ is now shifted into _Coloborhynchus_? Is this
generally accepted? And does this mean that it more likely looked like
3) Has _Tropeognathus_ been sunk into _Criorhynchus_? I noticed that
_Tropeognathus mesembrinus_ was called _Criorhynchus mesembrinus_, and
_Tropeognathus ribustus_ was now _Coloborhynchus robustsus_.
4) Which species of _Ornithocheirus_ are recognised?
5) What did _Brasileodactylus araripensis_ look like? Is it even closely
related to the ornithocheiroids?
6) What did _Santanadactylus_ look like? Yet another _Tropeognathus_/
Anhanguera_ - like pterosaur?
7) I now suppose that _Coloborhynchus_ has 4 species: _C. piscator_, _C.
robustus_, _C. spielbergi, C. araripensis_. How did the 4 species differ
from each other?
8) Whatever happened to _Araripedactylus conandoylei_??
