Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Santanadactyluswas a genus of pterosaur from the Aptian-age Romualdo Member of the Santana Formation, of Barra do Jardim, Araripe Plateau, Ceará Province, Brazil. Four species have been named, but today it is doubted they are part of the same genus. It was a rather large pterosaur.The genus was named in 1980 by the Dutch Paul de Buisonjé. The type species is S. brasilensis, the specific name referring to Brazil. It is based on holotype UvA M 4894 (Geological Institute of the University of Amsterdam), an upper part of the right humerus and a right scapulacoracoid; other remains were also included in the genus: this paratype consisted of two cervical from a different individual, referred because they were found in the same lot of 25 chalk nodules bought from collectors. Additional remains, including a notarium (fused vertebrae supporting the shoulder) have been referred to it since then. The structure of the humerus suggests an ornithocheirid, but the long neck vertebrae argue against this.
