Not considered dinosaur
Madygen, Osh Region, Kirgizia
In Peters, D., 2000. \\\"A reexamination of four prolacertiforms with implications for pterosaur systematics,\\\" Rivista Italiana di Paleontologia e Stratigrafia 106(3): 293-336 [December 2000] the describer supersedes all previous work on Longisquama, Cosesaurus, and Sharovipteryx and places them well inside the Prolacertiformes. In particular, this removes Longisquama from Dinosauria.
Longisquama insignis known primarily from a crushed fossil preserving only the fore parts of the animal, and also a number of disassociated \\\"long scales.\\\" was found in 1969 in Kyrgyzstan by the Russian insect paleontologist A.G. Sharov. The skull appears to have diapsid openings.
