Turns out that the late Campanian of North America had ornithocheirids after all.

More reasons to bash the head of the infidels who think pterosaurs were in decline.

    More than that, these are small, generalist, potentially basal, ornithocheiroids… Seemingly of the dentulous variant as well, seeing the distance between Two Medicine and the Western Interior Seaway (or, are they close, CMIIW)

      Indeed, nytcosaurs and pteranodonts were pelagic, so it’s unlikely Piksi was either of those.
