Synopsis Until now, the avian taxon Zygodactylus has been known only from distal tibiotarsi and tarsometatarsi from the early Miocene of Europe. Although the tarsometatarsus exhibits derived similarities to that of extant Pici (barbets, toucans, woodpeckers and their allies), it differs in many aspects and the phylogenetic affinities of Zygodactylus were uncertain. Here, a well‐preserved skeleton with a tentatively referred skull is described from the early Oligocene of the Luberon, southern… Expand
