Excerpt from Polydactylism in Man and the Domestic Animals, With Especial Reference to Digital Variations in Swine
The structural conditions Of the right foot (fig. 6) are very similar to those Of the right menus. The fifth metatarsal is short, and nearly as broad as long; a ... small protuberance on its ulnar side marks the point Of articulation for the extra digit. The supernumerary digit Shows only two ossification centres, but the incompletely calcified condition exhibited by the normal digits leads one to suppose that three phalanges might have been developed eventually. The supernumerary digit (v') is somewhat smaller than v, which may be interpreted as the normal fifih digit.
