Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
B. W. McPhee et al. 2015presence of a large posterior proximal tubercle on the femoral head (although the phylogenetic expression of this character has recently come in doubt; see below); proximally abrupt lesser trochanter that is taller than its basal width; fourth trochanter rounded in profile and obliquely oriented so that the proximal half is more medially set than the distal half.
