Eocaptorhinus question



In Heaton and Reisz 1980 Eocaptorhinus is reconstructed with cervical
ribs almost as wide as the dorsal ribs (no problem) and a pectoral
girdle encircling the mid cervicals (apparent problem). (Also shown in
Carroll 1988).

Since Hylonomous has a neck and pareiasaurs have a neck, why doesn't
Eocaptorhinus?

Or should the pectoral girdle be moved back a notch or two?
