Genus: Petrodactyle HONE, LAUER, LAUER & SPINDLER, 2023
Etymology: Greek, petro, "stone" and Greek, dactylus, "finger": the name harks back to the original description of the first pterosaur, Pterodactylus, a ctenochasmatid from the Solnhofen archipelago which was called the 'Pterodactyle' at the time, however, the name 'Petrodactyle' appeared on the cover of the descritpion (Cuvier, 1809), apparently in error. However, this name would have the appropriate etymology of 'stone-fineger' and thus is echoed here.
