I know of two accurate measurements of the bicondylar angle in
A.afarensis: AL 129-1a(15 dgs) and AL 333-4(9 dgs).
So far I have not been able to find data about this angle in AL 288-1("Lucy").
The AL 288-1 distal femur seems somewhat deformed(postmortem?)
so a good measurement may not be possible.
I would like to know if there is a measurement or a reasonable
estimate of the bicondylar angle in this specimen.
If possible,please mention the source.
