    Sammanfattning : To explain how the morphological differences between Rhamphorhynchoidea and Pterodactyloidea affect flight performances and life styles wings and claws of pterosaur fossils from collections in Uppsala and Munich have been measured. The measured specimens are from Jurassic limestones and shales in Solnhofen, Eichstätt and Holzmaden and include Dorygnathus, Campylognathoides, Rhamphorhynchus, Anurognathus, Pterodactylus, Germanodactylus and Gallodactylus.
