Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
G. Gierlinski 1991Quadrupedal in gait. Pes functionally tridactyl with hallux sometimes also imprinted. The fourth pedal digit is longest. In the trackway, pes and manus are directed forward, with the manus situated anteriorly and slightly outward in comparison to the pes. Ratio of pes length to pes pace 1:2.4. Ratio of manus length to manus pace 1:5.4. The angle between pedal digits II and IV varies from 48° to 58°. Manus tetradactyl, half the size of the pes and wider than long by an average of 33%. Manual digits II and II are longest.
