The Wings (continued)

Trailing edge ligament.
A mechanism for keeping the trailing edge taunt also remains uncertain. There appears to have been another ligament which ran along the length of the trailing edge and attached to some point on the body. There is much debate about the point of attachment of the ligament due to effects it would have on terrestrial locomotion (see bipedal vs. quadruped).
