The original Ornithocheirus simus fossils, show a mid-sized Ornithocheirus species with a wing span of 2.5 m (8.2 ft). Some specimens tentatively attributed to Ornithocheirus simus reach 5 m (16.5 ft).
So we're both right :)

Sinus sorta reminds me of a friend at high school which is nicknamed simos (from σημασία, which is Greek for attention)

Was this one an attention hog too?

No, it was a disaffected loner with mommy issues.
