'Jelínek J, 1992: Gravettian Shoulderblades, Their Morphological Variability and Other Interesting Features. Anthropologie (Brno) 30, 1: 45-50'.
In the Upper Palaeolithic scapular morphology the bisulcate type of the axillar border is not the only existing type. Sometimes the dorsal sulcus type, frequent in neanderthals, exists. Also the general shape of this bone is fairly variable and the existence of scaphoid shape of the shoulderblade is not suprising. Other varying morphological features demonstrate large variability which warns against the use of these features for premature conclusions in ontogenetical as well as phylogenetical evolution.
