If you don't know what to do with your spare time, go walk your dog. If you don't have a dog, walk someone else's dog. It's a better way for you to spend your time than what you are doing right now. If you think you don't have any spare time, then you probably don't have a dog.

comment What does “show some (a little) leg” mean?
Have you researched it as an idiom? It should be readily found that way.

@sam - I've come across a few related words that I think fit. If you care to dig a little further, you may be on to something. Please post as an answer if you do.

Yes. As time goes by with this question open, I have thought of one similar answer. This is a direction worth considering. Thanks. +1

Obscured or obscure are the closest words I have seen. A rationale may exist that is only visible to those who look beyond the obvious, examining the obscure evidence that might lead to the truth. You will receive the bounty if I do not see anything better or if I see a serious comment that would suggest otherwise.

@JoeBlow - your comments haven't fallen on deaf ears (although I happens to be blind in one eye lately). I have made an edit to my question.

I try not to be hard on newcomers with poor answers, but after 3 days I must down vote for these reasons: Evident and obvious mean plain or clear - the opposite of not readily apparent. Whether something is true or authentic is irrelevant to whether it is clear or unclear. I don't see the connection of unelaborated to the question at all. Something may be factual and either true or untrue, but that has nothing to do with whether it's clear or not. This leaves verifiable, which I did find interesting in another answer where the responder took the time to elaborate on his answer.

@JoeBlow - sorry, I meant "Not readily apparent" does NOT correlate with "difficult chain of proof".
