J. F. Bonaparte and T. M. Sánchez 1975Pterodactilóideo con la fíbula en similar grado de reducción y fusión con la tibia que en Pterodaustro guiñazui, pero con el extremo distal provisto de una extensa articulación globosa integrada por los huesos tarsales proximales fusionados a la tibia; con procesos espinosos en las caras medial y lateral de esa área distal. [Pterodactyloid with fibula in a similar grade of reduction and fusion with the tibia as in Pterodaustro guiñazui, but with the distal end provided with an extensive globular articulation integrated by the proximal tarsal bones fused to the tibia; with spinous processes on the medial and lateral faces of that distal area.]
