Spaccata in dietro (Santucci)

Full name of step in source: 
Rule 89. Spaccata in dietro. p84.
Translation of name: 
backwards splits

Beginning with the left foot behind, in passo naturale, do as in Rule 88 [Spaccata inanzi], but in falling to the ground, you should turn the toes behind, where the heels were first, and you put the right toes where the left heel was first, as in the following figure. It is called this because you split the legs, and you go backwards.
