Re: LONGISQUAMA FURCULA



George and Darren,
As I commented earlier, this looks like a real long shot, but wouldn't post-cloacal bones be among the bones least securely connected to rest of the skeleton, and therefore the most likely of the posterior elements to be isolated and possibly deposited on the anterior elements?

********************************************************
One might wonder how the cloacal bone managed to migrate up on top of the
anterior rib cage and thereby became the only bone of the pelvic region to be
preserved in the specimen. The entire rest of the skeleton of Longisquama
behind the dorsal series is lost.
