Description

Scientific name: Unidentified Azhdarchid Pterosaur Wing Phalanx 1 bone Digit IV. Alanqa saharica, Ibrahim et al. (2010) or Xericeps Martill et al., 2017

Location: Taouz, Errachidia Province, South Morocco

Geological Formation: Ifezouane Formation, Kem Kem Basin, Red Sandstone Beds

Age: Upper Cretaceous, Cenomanian stage, (~96 Million Years)

Size (long): 25.5cm = 10.03 Inch

REF.: G145

DESCRIPTION:
This is one of the most unique and extraordinary specimens of our Pterosaurs collection. It is the complete wing phalanx 1 bone from digit IV of a strange and little-known pterosaur species of the North African Cretaceous. This type of fossils are extremely rare.

Its morphology resembles very much that of the Azhdarchid pterosaurs. Two genus of Azhdarchid pterosaurs have been described from the Upper Cretaceous (Cenomanian stage) of South Morocco. One of them, the genus Alanqa and the other the genus Xericeps. This specimen is something unique and worthy of study and comparison to similar remains already published. High scientific value.

Not restored or glued. This is the almost complete first phalanx of digit IV.
