Our fossil humerus probably also differs from the humeri of the pipoid Neusibatrachus wilferti Seiffert, 1972, from the late Berriasian--early Valanginian of El Montsec (Lleida province), the eminentia capitata of which remained incompletely ossified (Baez and Sanchiz, 2007), and from isolated humeri of the representatives of the family Palaeobatrachidae, which have two rather symmetrical epicondyles (= similarly developed) (Hossini, 1992).
