For those that haven't seen it, there is a press release for the description of Guidraco here. This is yet another example of a large pterosaur whose closest known relative was half a world away (other examples include the anhanguerids/ornithocheirids of Brazil and Europe, giant azhdarchids of Europe and North America, etc). This is rather exciting for me, personally, as I have been suggesting for the last couple of years that large pterosaurs might have had cross-continental travel abilities. I even got to babble about it on NPR: you can check it out here.
