Description
MUSM-2024: despite the presence of few cracks, MUSM-2024 is complete and undistorted, and represents a right talus (ankle bone). Only the dorsal aspect of the talar body is slightly damaged in the distal part of the medial trochlear rim, where a single and irregular pit may correspond to a tooth print resulting from peri-mortem predation

  Abstract

    This contribution contains the 3D model of the fossil talus of a small-bodied anthropoid primate (Platyrrhini, Cebidae, Cebinae) discovered from lower Miocene deposits of Peruvian Amazonia (MD-61 locality, Upper Madre de Dios Basin). This fossil was described and figured in the following publication: Marivaux et al. (2012), A platyrrhine talus from the early Miocene of Peru (Amazonian Madre de Dios Sub-Andean Zone). Journal of Human Evolution.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.jhevol.2012.07.005
