The tenth skeletal specimen of Archaeopteryx

Abstract: Here we describe the tenth skeleton, which is the most complete and best-preserved archaeopterygid specimen to date. The almost complete skeleton is preserved on a single slab of pure limestone (Figs 1–3), and comes from an unknown locality and horizon of the Solnhofen area; its exact collection history is unknown to us.
