A new pterosaur-related paper is available online:

 

David M. Martill; Roy Smith; David M. Unwin; Alexander Kao; James McPhee; Nizar Ibrahim (2020). A new tapejarid (Pterosauria, Azhdarchoidea) from the mid-Cretaceous Kem Kem beds of Takmout, southern Morocco. Cretaceous Research. in press: Article 104424. doi:10.1016/j.cretres.2020.104424.

 

Afrotapejara represents the second non-Alanqa azhdarchoid pterosaur from the Kem Kem beds of Morocco, and niche partitioning could explain the presence of more than one azhdarchoid taxon from the Kem Kem Beds.

Can't find a link anywhere. I can only find the reference on wikipedia, but that doesn't have a link either. Can't find it on Cretaceous Research either.

Thanks. Sucks that so many of the Kem Kem pterosaur papers are paywalled.

 

Interesting.... I was looking at the low resolution images. Opened them in a new tab. I noticed that the end of the link was named .sml, which makes sense for small images. I then right out some things, and found out if I replaced the .sml with .jpg I could just view the high resolution images. So for everyone's benefit. Here are those high res images that can be viewed on their site, only it's a bit of a hassle to change the links.

All about $$$$$$$

With all these newly named pterosaurs based on partial elements I still have to wonder if we are not looking at sexual dimorphism or ontogeny.   Maybe the KK was a unique ecosystem
