Pterodactylus scolopaciceps Meyer, 1860 (Pterosauria, Pterodactyloidea) from the Upper Jurassic of Bavaria, Germany: The Problem of Cryptic Pterosaur Taxa in Early Ontogeny

Figure 12

Absolute frequencies of R2 values from the extensive graphical analyses.

A line graph demonstrating the frequencies (y-axis) of R2 values for each respective hypothesis tested in the 120 graphs. The R2 values are ordered from strong support to low support, left to right (x-axis). Morphotype one is represented by a dashed line, morphotype two is represented by a solid line, all specimens of “Pterodactylus” are represented by a dotted line. The highest peaks of the two morphotypes are marked and labelled. The area under the strongest supported hypothesis (morphotype two) is shaded grey for clarity. Likewise, the topologies of the lines are reproduced to the right of the graph.
