Re: aerodynamics of pterosaur wings



>>"Most significantly, the pteroid - a slender bone that articulated at
the wrist - appears to have been directed antero-ventrally in flight and
would have supported a broad forewing in the proximal part of the wing".<<

But aren't there pterosaur skin impressions (thinking of Pterodacylus).  
Wouldn't they show some evidence of this large forewing?
