Gwawinapterus takes wing

Yep there's another new pterosaur on the block (and on the blog for that matter). Gwawinapterus is a new istiodactylid from Canada and the first from the Americas. I have a guest post from describer Victoria Arbour up on the Musings, so head here to take a peek.

Late edit: Victoria has also blogged about this on her site as well.
