Presenting a ventral view, Zhejiangopterus preserves wing membranes (propatagia and tenopatagia in purple and brachiopatagia in light blue), uropatagia (in yellow) and hind limb tissues (light red). Note that the wing membrane approaches the proximal thigh and remains narrow near the elbow. The uropatagia are separate, as in Sharovipteryx.
