tuber calcanei (Fersenbeinhöcker)


Explanation:
heel bone or calcaneus would be the Fersenbein. You can probably also work "tuber" into one of these.

Röhrbein is the Vordermittelfuß (in horses)(metatarsus).

Metakarpus is the "Mittelhand" (metacarpus).

I would say "DIETZ et al., 1981"

HTH,
Kristina
