  1. Fig. 1

    (Top) Coxal remains of MH2 in internal (left) and external (right) perspectives. (Bottom) MH2 sacrum in ventral (left), lateral (center), and dorsal (right) views. Portions of the pedicles and laminae of the ultimate and penultimate lumbar vertebrae are cemented by matrix to the superior portion of the bone (removed by virtual preparation, fig. S4). Scale bars in centimeters.

  2. Fig. 2

    Comparison of the MH1 (left), Sts 14 (center), and MH2 (right, mirror-imaged) pelves in anteroinferior (top row) and anterosuperior (bottom row) views. Areas represented in white or light gray in the MH1 and MH2 pelves represent reconstructed portions of the pelvis (SOM text S1). Sts 14 is attributed to Au. africanus and is represented by the virtual reconstruction of (41). Scale bar in centimeters [note that the anterosuperior view of Sts 14, as provided by (41), is in a slightly different orientation than those of MH1 and MH2]. An additional comparison is provided in fig. S7.
