The pelvis and part of the spine is intact and the sternum is clearly seen, associated with a fine articulated wing. The second limb is present but displaced and dis-articulated, with the other ankle and foot, equally well preserved and detailed, at the top of the specimen. Altogether a fascinating legacy of Eocene life at an affordable price!
