Re: Pterosaur species list



There are some slight changes that need to be made to the list, especially the 
addition of Uktenadactylus wadleighi (Lee, 1993) Rodrigues & Kellner, 2008 
[genus coined by Rodrigues and Kellner, is a junior subjective synonym 
Coloborhynchus], and Cathayopterus Wang & Zhou, 2006 is a valid taxon, though 
published in a somewhat obscure source. The synonymy of some Chaoyangopteridae, 
Istiodactylidae, and Tupandactylus species need to be changed. There is a new 
version upcoming.

Mike Hanson, who posts on this list from time to time, maintains an 
excellent Pterosaur Species List, available here: 

http://www.archosauria.org/pterosauria/taxonomy/species.pdf 

(current through January 31, 2009 at last check.) 

I can think of one pterosaur that's been published since: 

Changchengopterus pani (LÃ) 

Could be others, but that's the only one that springs to mind. Mike's work 
is far more scholarly than anything I could produce, but as a passionate 
enthusiast, I keep a database of all known dinosaur and pterosaur species. 
(Well, all that are known to me anyway.) With a couple of mouse clicks, I 
can produce either a pterosaur genera or species list that would align 
relatively well with Mike's offering. If your interest is at the species 
level, definitely go with Mike's. If for any reason you'd want to distill 
that down to the generic level (something akin to Olshevsky's Dinosaur 
Genera List, say), shoot me an email off list and I can send you a PDF file. 
(I'd say the only real advantage is that I pop all newly published critters 
into my system virtually the moment I hear of them, so my lists might be 
marginally more up-to-date.)
