    Abstract

    A new specimen comprising a fragmentary pterosaur rostrum can be referred to the ornithocheirid genus Coloborhynchus sp. on account of its anteriorly directed anterior-most teeth located on an upturned palatal surface. The new specimen from the Early Cretaceous Wessex Formation, Wealden Group of the Isle of Wight, southern England is the first record of this taxon from the Barremian and the Isle of Wight.
