|Scientific classification Borogovia|
Later she concluded that it represented a species new to science.
In 1987, Osmólska named and described the type species Borogovia gracilicrus.
It consists of two lower legs of a single individual, including fragments of both tibiotarsi, the undersides of both metatarsi and the second, third and fourth toes of each foot.
The tibiotarsi have an estimated length of twenty-eight centimetres.
Borogovia is about two meters (6 feet) long, weighing some twenty kilograms (forty-five pounds).
The tibiotarsus is very elongated.
The third toe is narrow.
The second phalanx of the second toe is short.
The claw of the second toe is short and relatively flat.
Osmólska claimed that the second toe could not be hyperextended, and suggested that it had regained a weight-bearing function, compensating for the weakness of the third toe.
Borogovia was assigned by Osmólska to the Troodontidae in 1987.
