Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
S. D. Emslie and N. J. Czaplewski 1999Genus characterized by having the carpometacarpus with metacarpal III merging with the distal symphysis at an angle, a tendinal groove that curves proximally to the anterior surface of metacarpal II, the humerus with the shaft relatively straight and excavated at the distal end of the median crest, a broad pneumatic foramen, a deep excavation on the internal side of the impression for M. brachialis anticus, and a prominent deltoid crest as described for Morphnus (Howard, 1932).
