Pterodactylus antiquus by Archosaurian Pterodactylus antiquus by Archosaurian
A new version of my Pterodactylus antiquusskeletal reconstruction in a non-Greg Paul style. A good number of corrections have been made as well so hopefully it is more precise. I made this for comparison with "Pterodactylus" longicollum ([link]), a species of Pterodactylus that almost certainly does not belong to that genus.

The crest is very interesting - imagine what other pterosaurs might look like (but not in the David Peters way, yikes!)

I appreciate the non-Paulian format you're using. Much more useful and *ahem* accurate. :) The 1/2-n-1/2 ventrodorsal aspect is really nice for reference.
Useful and accurate. A good addition to a reference library. Two thumbs and two big toes way up! (Does that sound weird?)

Nice! Any particular reason you've added a crest?

A recently described specimen has soft tissue impressions of a crest.

It was described in Frey, E., Tischlinger, H., Buchy, M.-C., and Martill, D. M., 2003, New specimens of pterosauria (Reptilia) with soft parts with implications for pterosaurian anatomy and locomotion: In: Evolution and Palaeobiology of Pterosaurs, edited by Buffetaut, E., and Mazin, J.-M., Geological Society Special Publication, n. 217, p. 233-266. A photo can be found here: [link] but some important details can only be seen under ultra violet light.
