Re: Question for the pterosaur set...



This led me first to the Wiki page on Tupandactylus, and then to Darren Naish's recent posting at Tetrapod Zoology, which explains all:
http://scienceblogs.com/tetrapodzoology/2008/01/crato_formation_tapejarids.php


Bit of a messy situation, this. I rather hope (as Darren suggests could happen) that both names ultimately come to represent two valid and distinct taxa.Seems a shame that Ingridia had to be sunk right out of the gate.

Ingridia Unwin & Martill, 2007 (junior subjective synonym, =Tupandactylus Kellner & Campos, 2007)

Objective, not subjective, because both have the same type species.

Unfortunately.
