Calcanea of members of the Viverridae. Howard J. Stains. Bull. Southern California Acad. Sci. 82(1): 17-38, 1983. Calcanea of 20 genera (30 species) of Viverrids are described. Members of various subfamilies, except those of the Hemigalinae, form distinct groups, with those of the Herpestinae being most obvious by having a pronounced medio-laterally sloped cuboid surface on the calcaneal distal end.
