A previously undescribed and near-complete specimen of the non-pterodactyloid pterosaur Rhamphorhynchus is briefly described. Although purchased in 1878 and held in a public collection in Dublin, Ireland ever since, this specimen has never been described and was not even mentioned in the literature until 2010.
