Rhamphorhynchus is a genus of long-tailed pterosaurs from the Late Jurassic period of southern Germany. Like all early pterosaurs it had a long tail that ended in a characteristic diamond-shaped vane. Its teeth were needle-like, adapted to catching fish. The only species was Rhamphorhynchus muensteri.
