What do people think about moving this page to Hip bone, and redirecting this there for now? I think pelvis should have more pelvic cavity stuff, not be talking about the bone. Tristanb 07:49 10 Jun 2003 (UTC)

I personally would keep "Hip Bone" redirecting to this article as the term 'Hip Bone' is a rather lay term. I would also suggest that this article be renamed to the "Bony Pelvis" - a term which is generally accepted to refer to the bony structures of the pelvis.
Pelvis should then, as you say, discuss the contents of the true and false Pelvis with reference to the bony pelvis. 'Pelvis' to me does suggest a discussion combining both the bony and visceral pelvis. --Chris Scott 14:02, 5 March 2006 (UTC)[reply]

Backwards test for female vs. male pelvis?[edit]

The article says:

If the angle is about the same as between your outstretched thumb and index finger, it is a female pelvis (arcus pubis). If it is closer to the angle between your spread index and middle fingers, it is a male pelvis (arcus subpubis).

This seems backwards to me. One would expect the female pelvic angle to be greater than the male angle; as the article saysw, the female pelvis is wider and shallower than the male. -- Dominus 21:04, 20 Feb 2004 (UTC)

The angle in the female pelvis is indeed greater, and that's also what our article says: the angle between thumb and index finger is greater than the one between index finger and middle finger. Somebody should track down which parts of this article talk about humans and which parts talk about vertebrates in general. Right now everything is mixed up. AxelBoldt 04:09, 12 Sep 2004 (UTC)

Wrong Picture Label[edit]

I think the picture label is wrong- it mislabels the ischium. It is inconsistent with the Gray's picture. 00:55, 15 November 2006 (UTC)[reply]

  • The commenter above is correct; It looks to me like the arrow might have been intended to point a part of one ischial spine that is showing through the pelvic opening. However, the arrow is off enough to put its head roughly where the ilium meets the pubis. Also, "acetabulum" is the correct spelling for the socket of the hip joint.

Did these asterisks originally attach to some sort of note? I looked but found no accompanying pair, should they be removed? Does anyone know what they may have originally indicated? AweCo (talk) 00:24, 24 July 2011 (UTC)[reply]

Flat or irregular?[edit]

The introduction says flat and the category says irregular. What is right? --Impériale (talk) 22:54, 29 October 2014 (UTC)[reply]

I agree the introduction should be changed to flat, as it is referenced in the Flat Bone article. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flat_bone SquashEngineer (talk) 15:41, 5 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

I also got confused by that. The flat bone article cites Grey's Anatomy and a quick-and-dirty search on my side found not a single case that supports irregular bone.--XV-E-DCI (talk) 13:11, 1 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Shoulder Muscles[edit]

Section 3.7 describes Shoulder Muscles, which does not belong in this article. Suggest the entire section be removed. SquashEngineer (talk) 15:41, 5 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
