It’s featured in Pterosaurs by Mark P. Witton (a must have book) & in the Facebook group Pteros. :) (Smile)

I was surprised at the lack of reference material.

Really?  I'm surprised too.  You should do  Hatzegopteryx based on the new material that Mark Witton just described.

I was thinking that but it will have to be rather speculative as there’s not much material.

I've never saw a so horrible pterosaur. I'm not talking of yor piture, is the pterosaur itself. I though Caviramus was the most weird but this one....is a freak into pterosaurs standars!!!

Thanks, they are not sure how the jaws worked but it looks like scraping & crushing but the young had small peg like teeth so probably a different diet.
