The distance between the heads of the two humeri is practically the same as the distance between the femora.
The humeri are also bones with strong muscular crests, and the ulnæ are smooth and long.
The relics discovered consist of the brain cap, two femori, two humeri, and other fragments.
Messrs. Newton and Gadow describe this species from four metatarsi, three tibiae, and two humeri.
In thirteen others, the humeri only were hollow, and among these were several Birds of short flight.
