Distinct from and twice the size of No. 61, fingers I-III of PAL 3830 were larger. Manual digit III was longer than half the metacarpus and as long as the entire foot. The metacarpus was much more robust than manual 4.1. The foot, while appearing quite lethal, was actually much smaller, about a third of the tibia. A small patella was present. The penultimate pedal phalanges were the longest in each series suggestive of an arboreal habitat when not flying.

In this rollover image of PAL 3830in situ the soft tissue, possible disarticulated wing tissue, is traced. note that there is no connection between the leg and the main portion of wing tissue, torn, twisted and mangled as it is and coming off the wing bones at left.
