FIGURE 6. Close-up of the main carapace region of specimen PIMUZ T58 of Cyamodus hildegardis in ventral view. (1) Photograph of specimen. Note that because of technical reasons, the image is rotated 90° clockwise to the overview image in
Figure 2.2. (2) Interpretative sketch of skeletal elements. Black arrows indicate the two elements previously identified as coracoids by

Colour code: brown: armour elements; blue: vertebral centra and transverse processes; purple: appendicular elements; grey: girdle elements; green: ribs; yellow: elements of gastral apparatus; red: unidentified elements. Abbreviations: a: armour plates; dv: dorsal vertebra; g: gastral rib; r: rib; ra: radius; sc: scapula; tp: transverse process; ul: ulna; ?: unidentified.
