Abstract

Rather numerous pterosaur remains, although mostly fragmentary, have been described from the Cretaceous of France (see Knoll and Bouveur, 2001; Mazin et al., 2001). They mainly consist of isolated bones collected in the Early Cretaceous and latest Cretaceous (Campanian-Maastrichtian) strata, as illustrated by two recent papers on French pterosaurs (Buffetaut, 2001, 2004). The Cenomanian deposits of the Charentes region, in western France, have yielded a few pterosaur remains (Ne´raudeau et al., 2005; Vullo et al., 2005; Vullo, 2007) which are described herein. This material constitutes the only known Cenomanian occurrence of pterosaurs from France, and completes our knowledge of the earliest Late Cretaceous peri-Tethyan pterosaur fauna. Groups and taxa used in the present study are those defined by Unwin (2003) in his phylogenetic analysis.
