... which seems a surprising thing to do as Martill and Naish had
signalled their intent to do just this in their 2006 paper:

        Martill, David M., and Darren Naish.  2006.  Cranial
        crest development in the azhdarchoid pterosaur
        _Tupuxuara_, with a review of the genus and tapejarid
        monophyly.  Palaeontology 49 (4): 925-941.
