Re: Abyssal's official pterosaur question thread

The description is pretty brief, but that is indeed the one that coins the 
generic name. I don't have the original paper, but if you visit the Pterosaur 
Database you can find a transcription of it among a list of archived sources. 
Here are the links:

Archived Sources: http://www.pterosaur.co.uk/archive/papers.htm
Direct Link to Paper: http://www.pterosaur.co.uk/archive/SO-1876-Marsh.pdf
