The first Rhamphorhychus fossil was found in 1825. It was first thought that it was an ancient bird, but under closer examination, it became clear that it had teeth, certainly not what they expected a bird to have. Pterodactylus, the first pterosaur, had just been described. A quick comparison told the scientists that the new ‘bird’ fossil was really a pterosaur, but unlike Pterodactylus, which had a short tail, this new pterosaur had a very long tail. Because of this difference, it became known as Rhamphorynchus (‘beak-tail) longicaudus (‘long tail’).
