Dsungaripteridae

Return

An Upper Jurassic and Lower Cretaceous Family of crested pterosaurs with large sturdy skulls and reduced, specialised dentition.

Santanadactylus is a complex classification.  This genus may be a composite of several different pterosaur types.  S. spixi is thought to be a Dsungeripterid, but it shows some characteristics that could place it in the Tupuxuara or Tapejara genus. This type will eventually be re-named.

Dsungaripterus - Junggar Basin wing
Domeykodactylus - Cordillera Domeyko finger
Noripterus - lake wing
Lonchognthosaurus - lance jaw lizard
Nemicolopterus - forest dwelling wing
