A newly discovered dinosaur species surprises scientists

The newly discovered species, named Ceoptera evansae, dates back to the Middle Jurassic period, about 170 million years ago. This discovery shows that the group of flying reptiles, to which Ceoptera belongs, was more diverse and existed on Earth for a longer time than previously thought.

The appearance of Ceoptera in the Middle Jurassic of Great Britain was a complete surprise, as most of its close relatives come from China. This demonstrates that an advanced group of flying reptiles, to which it belongs, appeared earlier than previously believed and quickly gained an almost worldwide distribution.

The new species was described based on a fossil found on the Scottish island of Skye. The pterosaur fossil consists of parts of the skeleton, including portions of the wings, legs, and spine.

Scientists studied it using computerized tomography, as most of the bones were completely surrounded by rocks. Dr. Liz Martin-Silverstone, a paleobiologist at the University of Bristol, emphasizes the significance of the period from which Ceoptera originates.

This brings us a step closer to understanding where and when more advanced pterosaurs evolved. The text contains advertising links from our partner.

El nuevo g�nero descubierto, denominado Ceoptera evansae, se remonta al periodo Jur�sico Medio, hace unos 170 millones de a�os. Este descubrimiento muestra que el grupo de reptiles voladores al que pertenece Ceoptera era m�s diverso y existi� en la Tierra durante m�s tiempo de lo que se pensaba anteriormente.

La aparici�n de Ceoptera en el Jur�sico Medio de Gran Breta�a fue una completa sorpresa, ya que la mayor�a de sus parientes cercanos provienen de China. Esto demuestra que un grupo avanzado de reptiles voladores, al que pertenece, apareci� antes de lo que se cre�a anteriormente y r�pidamente adquiri� una distribuci�n casi mundial.

La nueva especie fue descrita a partir de un f�sil encontrado en la isla escocesa de Skye. El f�sil de pterosaurio consta de partes del esqueleto, incluyendo porciones de las alas, patas y columna vertebral.

Los cient�ficos lo estudiaron utilizando tomograf�a computarizada, ya que la mayor�a de los huesos estaban completamente rodeados por rocas. La Dra.

Liz Martin-Silverstone, paleobi�loga de la Universidad de Bristol, enfatiza la importancia del per�odo del que proviene Ceoptera. Esto nos acerca un paso m�s a comprender d�nde y cu�ndo evolucionaron los pterosaurios m�s avanzados.
