Pelagornis is a widespread genus of the prehistoric pseudotooth birds. These were probably rather close relatives of either pelicans and storks, or of waterfowl, and are here placed in the order Odontopterygiformes to account for this uncertainty.
Four species have been formally described, but several other named taxa of pseudotooth birds might belong in Pelagornis too.
