Porfiri et al. 2011slender metatarsus construction with metatarsals IV strongly compressed transversely on its distal half, acquiring a blade-like shape in caudal view; metatarsals IV and III subequal in length; proximal half of metatarsal III narrow and with subparalel margins along its length; metatarsal III lacking a distal ginglymus; metatarsal II distally overlapping metatarsal III; proximally, metatarsal II is approximately twice the wide of either metatarsals III and IV; phalanx 2.II longer than phalanx 2.I; in cranial view, distal end of metatarsal II with a small sulcus medially directed
