“If you don’t think nature can be bonkers at times, then you’ve never laid eyes on this newest animal, the Geosternbergia. However, it is, apparently, graceful in the air. Not that I would know, but isn’t that your job?”
— Cabot Finch
Geosternbergia was one of the largest birds in the sky during the the Late Cretaceous period. The Kansas fossil was one of the largest pterosaur genera and had a wingspan of up to 7.25 meters (23.8 feet).
Geosternbergia was traditionally considered a species, or occasionally subgenus, of the similar pterosaur Pteranodon in most major studies of pteranodontians through the 1990s.
However, a 2010 review of the group by A.W.A. Kellner suggested that Pteranodon sternbergi was different enough from Pteranodon longiceps to belong in a distinct genus, to which Kellner also referred a new species, Geosternbergia sternbergi in honor of the George F. Sternberg.
