cervical vertebrae and ribs, dorsal vertebrae and ribs, scapulae, a
partial left coracoid, left humerus displaced anteriorly, left radius
and ulna, most of the left manus, complete cervical osteoderm shield

portion, left maxilla broken after second left tooth and dorsal

However, you haven't indicated what you are referring to exactly. The
manus is not figured in the description.
