Re: Chaoyangopteridae

Wow! That was fast!
I don't think weird does this thing justice, it seems when pterosaurs can't get 
more bizarre out comes something that completely boggles my mind, I'm sure 
there is more to say about it, but I'm also sure someone else out there can 
articulate it better than me somewhere between now and when I finish reading 
the paper. Any thoughts on how Nemicolopterus fits in taking into account 
Shenzhoupterus now?

Does it by any chance happen to begin with an L and end with an onchodectid? ;)
