If no rank is listed, the taxon is considered an unranked clade in modern classifications. Ranks may be repeated or presented in the wrong order because authors working on different parts of the classification may disagree about how to rank taxa.
|S. C. Bennett 2013||Upper Jurassic pterodactyloid with elongate skull, a slender and elongated rostrum and the superior margin of the anterior skull markedly concave; tooth number ~15 teeth per jaw side in mature adults; teeth strong, gently curving, and somewhat anteriorly inclined; posterior teeth equivalent in size to anterior teeth; tooth row length ~50% of jaw length, and upper tooth row not extending under the naso-antorbital fenestra. Cervical vertebrae 3-7 elongate, and neck relatively longer that in Cycnorhamphus, Ctenochasma, and Aurorazhdarcho (shared with Pterodactylus). In known specimens WP2 is 65–71 % of WP1 length, and WP1-4 lengths exhibit a concave upward curve in modified Nopcsa curves.|
