Germanodactylus ramphastinus

"Daitingopterus" (meaning "Daiting Wing") is a nomen nudum, meaning that it is not a valid scientific name. Informally coined in 2004,[1] it is intended as a replacement name for "Germanodactylus" rhamphastinus, named by Wagner in 1851 as a species of Ornithocephalus.[2] It lived in the Late Jurassic of what is now Germany.
