Pterosaurs · 26. August 2021
Me and my colleagues Jahn Hornung (Niedersächsisches Landesmuseum Hannover), Benjamin Kear (Museum of Evolution Uppsala), and Sven Sachs (Naturkunde-Museum Bielefeld) published a study in Acta Palaeontologica Polonica, in which we describe a new pterosaur fossil from the Lower Cretaceous of Northern Germany. The specimen was found in lower Valanginian strata of the Sachsenhagen clay pit and consists of a fragmentary mandible. The fossil is housed in the Ruhr-Museum, Essen, Germany
