|Title||Paper, 'On the secondary carpals, metacarpals, and digital rays in the wings of existing carinate birds' by William Kitchen Parker|
|Description||Parker writes: 'In a paper "On the Morphology of Birds” [see AP/64/12], already sent in to the Royal Society, but not yet published, I have described certain additional parts in the wings of Gallinaceous birds. One of these lies on the radial side of the first metacarpal; the other two are on the ulnar side of the second and third metacarpals. These parts, which at first caused me considerable surprise, being wholly unexpected by me, are only part of what I have since found in other families.'|
