RE: Femora of Titanosauriformes: What am I looking for?
Thank you for the help.
But I do have one last question on the subject? Is the
lateral bulge characteristic restricted to
Titanosauriformes or just maintained by all
Titanosauriformes? I.e. all titanosauriform femora
I've seen have this trait, but the Dicraeosaurus mount
at the Humboldt Museum possesses has quite a bit of a
swelling on the lateral margin of its femur (as does
the femur figured in "The Dinosauria" to about the
same degree as Magyarosaurus) and isn't straight like
that of Limaysaurus or Diplodocus.
