Re: Pterosaur huge crest

This photo of KJ1 looks like it has been altered to extend the length of the

posterior process.  All other photos that I've seen of it have the posterior

process about half that length, perhaps a bit less.  Last I heard, the KJ-1
and KJ-2 specimens had not been given a species name and were still being
referred to as Nyctosaurus species (my info may be out of date re that).
