Metatarsal V



    In "The Dinosauria" figures 4-2 B, 12-6 A, 15-8 G~L, and 18-2 G; 
the pedes of _Herrerasaurus_, _Deinonychus_, _Anchisaurus_, 
_Sellosaurus_, _Yunnanosaurus_, _Blikanosaurus_, _Riojasaurus_, 
and _Segnosaurus_ respectively.  These show that Metatarsal V was 
fairly long and robust in Herrerasaurs and stayed long, but became 
more gracile in later theropods; whereas it became very short and 
robust in prosauropods and segnosaurs.
