First occurrence of the pterosaur Coloborhynchus (Pterosauria,
Ornithocheiridae) from the Wessex Formation (Lower Cretaceous) of the
Isle of Wight, England.

A new specimen comprising a fragmentary pterosaur rostrum can be
referred to the ornithocheirid genus Coloborhynchus sp. on account of
its anteriorly directed anterior-most teeth located on an upturned
palatal surface. The new specimen from the Early Cretaceous Wessex
Formation, Wealden Group of the Isle of Wight, southern England is the
first record of this taxon from the Barremian and the Isle of Wight.
