macrodactyl  

MEDSPEAK A rarely used term for a person with large digits–fingers or toes.

ZOOLOGY One of a group of wading birds with very long toes

Note: this term got 52,400 hits on 22/01/2013, most of which refer to definition of …wading birds from the 1913 Webster ‘s Dictionary  Because many species or organisms have been reclassified based on molecular data, I’m uncertain whether this term is still in use or it has morphed into something else. 

Synonym Megadactyl
