In the cartilaginous Ganoids the pelvic girdle is hardly to be separated from the skeleton of the fin.
The observations on the development of the pelvic girdle in the Amphibia and Amniota are nearly as scanty as on those of Fishes.
It is for a considerable period attached to the pelvic girdle, but eventually becomes segmented from it.
In the Amphibia the two parts are not separated, and resemble in this respect the pelvic girdle of Fishes.
The ventral portions of the pelvic girdle usually unite below in a symphysis.
The bones of the leg are articulated with a closely fused set of bones, the pelvic girdle.
In the pelvic girdle the ilium corresponds to the scapula, the ischium to the coracoid, the pubis to the clavicle.
This is the pubic bone of the pelvic girdle which supports the hind legs.
The pelvic girdle is in Teleostomes completely absent as a rule.
They articulate with the pelvic girdle and hence this vertebra is regarded as the sacrum.
