A uniquely male trait is the rough everted area of the medial border of the ischiopubic ramus for the attachment of the crus (corpus cavernosum) of the penis. This ramus is more gracile in females and narrows as it approaches the symphysis. In the sacrum, females show a proportionally smaller superior articular surface relative to the total width of the wings. If a well-developed preauricular sulcus is present, this also indicates a female individual. This sulcus usually develops Anthropology/Odontology | Sexing 37 Male Large body (sacrum) Wide ilium Narrow sciatic notch Large acetabulum (directed laterally) Heart-shaped inlet Sacrum Rough everted I–P ramus Triangular pubis Dorsal facing ischium Narrow subpubic angle Female Smaller body Wide sciatic notch Wide ‘false’ pelvis Oval inlet Smaller acetabulum (directed anterolaterally) Narrowed, gracile I–P ramus Rectangular pubis Laterally oriented ischium Wide subpubic angle Figure 2 Sex differences in the pelvis.
