These were initially the basis of the taxon's referral to the clade Azhdarchidae, but they are also similar enough to be a basis for the synonymy of Hatzegopteryx and Quetzalcoatlus . A lower jaw fragment shows a helical type of articulation, which is known in several families of pterosaurs, and cannot be identified with great accuracy. Eoazhdarcho is a genus of azhdarchoid pterodactyloid pterosaur named in 2005 by Chinese paleontologists Lü Junchang and Ji Qiang.The type species is Eoazhdarcho liaoxiensis.The genus name combines a Greek eos, "dawn" with the name of the genus Azhdarcho, with the implication it was an early related form of the latter.The specific name refers to the ancient region Liaoxi.

Volgadraco (Volga River dragon) is a genus of azhdarchid pterodactyloid pterosaur from the Upper Cretaceous of European Russia. The genus was named in 2002 by Alexander Kellner and Diogenes de Almeida Campos. Azhdarchidae is a family of pterosaurs known primarily from the late Cretaceous Period, though an isolated vertebra apparently from an azhdarchid is known from the early Cretaceous as well. Kellner assigned it to the Tapejaridae within Azhdarchoidea. Azhdarchids included some of the largest-known flying animals of all time, but members no larger than a cat have also been found. Pterosaur phylogeny is currently highly contested and several hypotheses are presented below. (2008).

According to some analyses however, Tupuxuara is closer to the Azhdarchidae (the group that includes the giant Texan form Quetzalcoatlus) than to Tapejara and its relatives. It is a member of the family Azhdarchidae, a family of advanced toothless pterosaurs with unusually long, stiffened necks.
