- n. Plural form of dsungaripterid.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
Maybe there were narrow-chord forms (with my money being on dsungaripterids), but we have yet to find soft-tissue evidence demonstrating their presence.
Morphological evidence suggests that dsungaripterids were quite terrestrial in habits (Fastnacht 2005), and it’s tempting to speculate that they were better suited for walking around on the ground than were others, and hence with less extensive patagia.
