Re: long necked gliding reptile
Cool critter, anyway. Nick Fraser and I had
some talking about this specimen some time ago
and he he said it is very intriguing.
I also am looking forward to read the paper. The
artist' restoration of the gliding structure
looks like that of a a coelurosauravid, but I am
not very confident if a long stretched
neck would be compatible with gliding in such a fashion...
Well' let's wait for the paper...

Well, the articles also claims the new species as "a possible ancestor
of _Tanystropheus_", which seems pretty improbable. I'll be looking
forward to getting the next issue of JVP to see what the real deal
