Rhamphorhynchus & Pterodactylus

This pair have made regular appearances on the Musings over the years and it’s not surprising – they’re simply known from so many specimens and are so fundamental to what we mean by rhamphorhynchoid and pterodactyloid pterosaurs. Here’s something a little different though – undescribed material.

Both of these are currently on display in Toyko and have never been described or mentioned in the literature before to my knowledge. I was given permission to work on them and fix this little issue, though as neither could be dismounted from the display while I was there I could do little more than take a few photos through the glass and under the rather uneven spotlights. It’ll have to wait for another time, but here they are at least.
