Figure not signed. The image is numbered and captioned below: ‘Fig 119. – Ramphorynchus restored. One-quarter natural size.’
The accompanying text (p.190) states: ‘Another reptile allied to the Pterodactyle lived in this epoch – the Ramphorynchus, distinguished from the Pterodactyle by a long tail. The imprints which this curious animal had left upon the sandstone of the period are impressions of its feet and the linear furrow made by its tail.’
