pterosaur ptuesday Campylognathoides liasicus

Campylognathoides is a genus of basal Novialoidian pterosaus from early Jurassic Europe (and possibly India) consisting of four species (although one, C.Indicus may not be a real species). It was originally assigned to Rhamphorhynchoidea, however modern cladistic analysis places it within its own group, Campylognathoididae. 

C.Liasicus shared its habitat with the much more common piscavorous Dorygnathus. Its difference in dentition and skull shape may indicate it had a different feeding strategy than Dorygnathus in order to avoid competition with it. It also had over-sized eyes that may indicate it was nocturnal.

Most of you guys have already seen all of these pieces separately, but here they are as a postcard/business card combo! Thank you everyone for making suggestions, I’m glad some people said to go lighter because I definitely think this looks WAY better. Just note that these aren’t to scale, and feedback is always appreciated. :)

ALSO! If you don’t know about moo.com’s summer sale going on until Saturday, check it out! 30% off EVERYTHING, not just printed items - pens, notebooks, and other business/office supplies are included too. I love the quality of their printing, so if you need postcards, business cards, stickers, etc. for freelance or just to have, go look into it!

Be expecting a Tylosaurus/Dolichorhynchops illustration soon… :D
