Abstract:In this study, we analyzed the acetabular shape of 42 adult Macaca mulatta tcheliensis using geometric morphometrics, and provided information on the sexual dimorphism. The results showed that the sexual dimorphism of acetabulum was obvious between females and males. By using the acetabular shape, 92.3% of females and 87.5% of males were successfully identified. Sex differences were mainly characterized by males exhibiting relatively extended acetabular rim profiles in superior posterior part, which was opposite to the acetabular notch. In addition, the range of acetabular size in males was greater than that in females. The biological reason for this difference might be related to the function of acetabulum. Acetabulum, as part of the hip joint, could support the body mass and optimize the pressure distribution of joint contact surface. It was speculated that the greater mass pressure on male acetabulum might be the main reason for the wider lunate surface of males than females.
