Table 1 Comparison of ratios between different length of skeletal elements, calculated for specimen MCSN 8076 and different Neusticosaurus species from Monte San Giorgio, as reported by Sander (1989, p. 631, tab. 9; ratios of both sexes combined)

From: Co-occurrence of Neusticosaurus edwardsii and N. peyeri (Reptilia) in the Lower Meride Limestone (Middle Triassic, Monte San Giorgio)
