Genus: Tupandactylus KELLNER & CAMPOS, 2007
Etymology: Tupan or Tupa, god of the thunder in the Tupian culture and Greek, dactylus, "finger."
= Ingridia UNWIN & MARTIL, 2007
Etymology: In memory of Ingrid Wellnhofer, wife of Peter Wellnhofer, the leading authority on pterosaurs for much of the last four decades.

Species: imperator (CAMPOS & KELLNER, 1997) KELLNER & CAMPOS, 2007
Etymology: Latin, imperator, "emperor."
= Species Nova KELLNER & CAMPOS, 1992
= Ingridia imperator (CAMPOS & KELLNER, 1997) UNWIN & MARTIL, 2007

Note: Both Kellner, et al, 2007 and Unwin, et al., 2007 renamed Tapejara imperator. Kellner & Campos paper was publshed two months before Unwin & Martill and therefore has priority. Also, Unwin & Martill place Tapejara navigans into thier new genus Ingridia as a seperate species, though Kellner et al., 2007 referre Tapejara navigans to Tupandactylus imperator. I'm following both Unwin & Martill and place Tapejara navigans as a sperate species of Tupandactylus.
