We are talking one weenie little distal bit-of-a-shin here! My guesstimate
would a total length of a little over 2 metres so six feet long would be
correct. As to the description, it will be in the next Rec. WA Museum which
is due for release any moment now (in short, small Middle Jurassic theropod
from Bringo with uniquely shaped astragular attachment points).

Oh...and I find the "Lizard of Oz" moniker to be an abomination against
life itself.
