The Munich Archaeopteryx is the most recent specimen, it was discovered in 1992 and described by Peter Wellnhofer in 1993. Wellnhofer interpreted this specimen as a separate species, which he named Archaeopteryx bavarica. It is slightly larger than the Eichstatt specimen but smaller than the Berlin specimen. Despite being smaller than the Berlin specimen, the foot is just as big, and the tibia is longer than in the Berlin specimen. The ulna is also pretty long. The teeth are sharp as in the Eichstatt specimen, rather than blunt as in the London, Berlin, and Solnhofen specimens. This is the only specimen of Archaeopteryx which has a breastbone.
