Pterosaur hand and wrist musculature
What do people think happened to the tranversus palmaris and flexor
digiti quinti in pterosaurs (presuming digit V is lost, and not the wing
finger)? Also, presuming the pteroid is a neomorph -- not digit I or
metacarpal I -- what muscles were available to control it?
Any refs on this would also be appreciated (better yet, PDFs, as I lack
university access at present).
P.S. Feel free to ramble on about pterosaur digit identification.
