Re: Carniadactylus paper and pterosaur ontogeny
As one possible example of this, there are currently no described
differences between Q species and Q northropi that are diagnostic for
seperate species. In addition, the known bones of the two wings scale up
anisometrically with structurally significant and very substantial
differences in long bone relative length ratios.

It's also worth noting that for pterosaurs to be flighted at small size
and retain flight ability through growth, they cannot grow isometrically.
