08 Sep 16

A new study has found a new species from the group of flying reptiles called pterosaur in South America’s Patagonia region. The researchers have named it ‘Allkauren Koi’ where ‘all’ stand for ‘brain’ and ‘karuen’ for ancient in Tahuelche language.

 

The new discovery states pterosaurs had an amazing adaptation to flight including pneumatic bones to lighten their weight and a stretched out digit supporting a wing membrane.

 

According to the report, pterosaur neuroanatomy is known from only a few three dimensionally preserved remains that includes uncrushed braincase until now. Allkaruen belongs to the middle lower Jurassic limit. It shows the middle state in the brain evolution of pterosaurs & their adjustment to the aerial environment.

 

‘Diego Pol’, a researcher from the Museum of Paleontology Egidio Feruglio in Trelew city, Argentina has stated that, “Allkaruen, from the middle lower Jurassic limit, shows an intermediate state in the brain evolution of pterosaurs and their adaptations to the aerial environment”.
