New Archaeopteryx specimen (large wing) found

Fossils found last November in a quarry in MÃhlheim near MÃrnsheim (EichstÃtt) turn out to be the wing of an Archaeopteryx, being both the largest (10-15 percent larger than others) and the youngest specimen known, coming from upper layers of the Solnhofen beds. (in German)
