Short anatomical question. In their description of _Titanosaurus colberti_, Jain and Bandyopadhyay (1997) regard _Antarctosaurus septentrionalis_ as a junior synonym of _T. indicus_. _A. sept_ has a proportionately much longer scapula than _T. indicus_, but Jain and Bandyopadhyay claim that this is due to the coossification of the scapula with the "supra-scapula" in _A. sept_. This makes the scapula of _A. sept_ look longer than it really is.

Okay, so the question wasn't so short. :-) But can anyone tell me what a "supra-scapula" is?
