Araripe Ornithocheiroids by Archosaurian Araripe Ornithocheiroids by Archosaurian
The skulls of all Araripe Ornithocheiroids with known skull material, this is a re-working of an older piece that I threw together to use as a reference for my upcoming new pterosaur skulls work.

Edit: Added a few new species.

I am making one of these. I wasn't aware that you had already done one :)

Mmh, i need to draw an ornithocheiroid sometimes; this will surely help me a lot ;)

Just caught all the updates. Very interesting panoply! Would it be possible to sort these "species" into somesort of temporal distribution, so we get an idea which species were contemporaries?

ALSO: I agree with you that SMNK 2302 PAL is a fully-grown C. piscator.

very nice

Very nice! You should add some cambridge greensand specimens there as well. I know theyr fragmentary, but it would be interesting to see how they compare in size. On the side not it might be good if those parts that are reconstructed would be in some gray tone. It would make it immediately obvious which parts are the real specimen and which parts are reconstructed.

I might do something for Cambridge Greensand pterosaurs, now that you mention it. I didn't make the reconstructed parts grey because this was originally a reference study for another work, but I might as well since that is still a way off.

I accidentally read it as "Agape" instead of Araripe. IT STILL WORKS.

How long is Cearadactylus considered an ornithocheiroid over a ctenochasmatoid? Not that I am complaining; makes more sense that way.

It's been moved around between Ornithocheiroidea and Ctenochasmatoidea since 2002 when Unwin first suggested it was an aberrant ctenochasmatoid. A recent study shows that a good part of the tip of the snout was faked after it was attached to the rest of the specimen upside-down. When all this is taken into account Cearadactylus makes perfect sense as an ornithocheiroid.
