This is a bit of an odd post, but one I had to share. I got an e-mail from Helmut Tischlinger late last night saying that press release was going out in Germany featuring a new pterosaur. It’s from Wattendorf, is being worked on for a description at the moment and it apparently going on display today at the Bamberg museum. That’s all I know. I’m assuming it’s from the Solnhofen proper and it’s clearly a pterodactyloid and most likely a ctenochasmatid based on those fantastic jaws.
However, it looks superb and Helmut was good enough to share this photo (on which he retains the copyright, do not reproduce etc. without permission) with me which he gave me permission to put up here. So here it is, enjoy.
