I’m a huge fan of Mark Witton’s pterosaur photostream (with commentary), and was quite glad to see that he’s named his first species! Lacusovagus is a rather interesting fellow (even by pterosaur standards)…for a detailed description (and Mark’s side of the story), go here.

May the fossil record continue to enchant us all.
