  • A team of paleontologists has identified a new species of pterosaur from a fossil discovered on the Isle of Skye in Scotland.
  • It is a type of flying reptile that lived during the time of the dinosaurs.
  • The fossil, which is about 165 million years old, belongs to a group of pterosaurs known as darwinopterans.
  • These are regarded as a transitional form between the earlier and later pterosaurs.
  • Ceoptera is the first darwinopteran pterosaur to be found in Scotland, and only the second pterosaur overall.
