"ischial foot": Anatomically: processus terminalis ischii. Present in
many archosaurs.
"ischiadic peduncle" (if this is what Nick Gardner had in mind):
Processus articularis ossis ischii (a posterior lower process of ilium).

hehe, I uhm... made a typo, I definitely meant to write 'ischium' there, can't believe I did that..., don't know how many times I've written that in my notes correctly without fail and the one place that it matters... ah nevermind.
