Re: looking for illustration

I agree with Mike re the possibility that all may be the same species. And, as he says, for animals that can travel 600 miles in a day, geographic separation isn't much of an issue.

Upshot: we have three big azhdarchids that are very similar in size,
and could be congeneric (or even the same species, to be honest - the geographic separations are meaningless for a flap-glider of that size), of which only Quetzalcoatlus has much material. Therefore, reconstructions of giant azhdarchs are still best done using Quetz.
