Bryn Mader and Alexander Kellner’s Pterosaur is known only from a front section of a fossil jaw with some teeth. The holotype fossil resides in the Long Island Natural History Museum, United States and was found near (Ksar es Souk), modern-day Errachidia City, the province of Errachidia in the region of Meknes Tafilalet, in Beg'aa, west of Hamada du Guiren in southeastern Morocco.
The Red sandstones are situated between Algeria and Morocco. The fine-grained alluvium deposits from the Albian and Cenomanian stages of the Cretaceous period are a striking feature in the region. On the sloping edges of the greater Hamada, the natural border between the two states, the fossil sites are exposed in the stained iron red rock and earth of a vast desert area. Here in the Northern Sahara fossil hunters dig for dinosaur fossils and find many other bones of prehistoric fauna.
Siroccopteryx was a flying reptile that lived during the Cretaceous Period. This Pterosaur grew to have a wingspan of over twenty feet. Had lightweight hollow bones and weighed in at around 17 kg (37lbs). It is believed the flying reptiles flapped their wings reminiscent of modern-day birds, using the bat like thin membranes attached to the knees, abdomens and long arms and specialised fingers which extended the wing to great lengths.
Pteranodon is a larger species of pterosaur with a wingspan of over 6 meters that lived during the late Cretaceous period. Some refer to pterosaurs as a pterodactyl, so in this case, Pteranodon would be a pterodactyl. However, there is also a species of pterosaur called Pterodactyl, scientifically named Pterodactylus.
