Campylognathoides zitteli, the Paris specimen, MNHN, Paris HLZ 50, C4 in the Wild 1975 catalog (Quenstedt 1858, Strand 1928), Early Jurassic, ~180 mya, was derived from a sister to Eudimorphodon cromptonellus and phylogenetically preceded the Cz specimen of Campylognathoides.
Distinct from E. cromptonellus, the skull of C. zitteli had no multi-cusped teeth. The naris was larger than the antorbital fenestra. The fourth premaxillary tooth was the largest tooth in the skull.
Similar to E. ranzii, the neck was short and the torso was large and long. The tail vertebrae are stiffened with bundles of zygopophyses and hyper-elongated hemals.
The sternal complex was large, similar in shape to that of E. ranzii. The scapula and coracoid were smaller. The metacarpals were more similar in length. The wing was much more robust. Manual 4.1 extended to the elbow. The folded wing was twice as tall as the skull while standing.
The prepubis was smaller. A femoral "neck" was present. Distinct from E. cromptonellus, the metatarsus was shorter. Metatarsals 1 and 4 were relatively shorter. Digit 2 was the longest and had the longest ungual. Pedal digit 5 was reduced to a vestige.
