Re: Pterosaur wing shape



Palmer and Dyke (2011) Constraints on the wing morphology of pterosaurs 
Proceedings of the Royal Society B restore the outer tip of the wing as very 
slender and concave directed aft because the wing membrane is supposed to be 
to flexible to show the convex wing tip often restored. But they cite Kellner 
et al.'s paper 2009 paper in the same journal without noting that on both 
Jeholopterus wing tips the preserved membranes are much broader than P & D 
retore, so much so that they must have been convex. So I'm sticking with the 
latter.
