Sexually Dimorphic Tridimensionally Preserved Pterosaurs and Their Eggs from China

An exciting discovery indeed!

Reported at Current Biology magazine:

To parse out the title for you:
Sexually Dimorphic – meaning that there were obvious differences between the males and females.
Tridimensionally Preserved – the eggs were 3-D (not flatened).

Pterosaurs are not to be confused with Pterodactyls, though they are similar looking creatures.
