Spanish term or phrase: cursilla
In an article describing how to carve a pork leg, I am stumped by the word "cursilla" in this sentence. (This comes from Spain.) What is this word in English?

"Cuando se encuentre con el hueso de la cadera o **“cursilla”**, haga dos cortes a modo de cuña a su alrededor."
Thanks so much!

Os Coxae


Explanation:
Good afternoon,
have a look at the diagram on the link below that illustrates the bone that is referred to.
I think in this case I would just say "hip bone" in English, as it seems that the Spanish have two words for the same thing.
I hope this helps!
Mike
