Unlike the previous three discoveries, this dinosaur did not have any teeth – it was “edentulous”.
The discovery was led by Professor David Martill, from the University’s School of the Environment, Geography and Geosciences.
He said: “The study of Moroccan material shows that we are still far from having found all the paleontological treasures of North Africa.
“Even fragmentary fossils, like the jaw piece of the new pterosaur, can give us important information about the biodiversity of the past.”
PhD student Roy Smith, who co-authored the study, said: “I feel very privileged to be part of such an exciting discovery.
