Part of the hyoid musculature in these same groups of chipmunks was dissected.
This flap, an outgrowth of the hyoid arch, is known as the operculum.
The hyoid apparatus (fig. 59, C) consists of a median portion, and a pair of cornua.
The hyoid arch is noticeable for the length of the anterior cornu.
The second or hyoid arch bears gills and often assists in attaching the jaws to the cranium.
The hyoid in most respects resembles that of the Insectivora.
The instrument may catch against the hyoid bone, and this may be mistaken for an obstruction.
Note the U-shaped hyoid bone surrounding the front of the glottis.
The remnant of the hyoid is continued entirely into the lingual artery.
From above downward one feels in the middle line the parts in the order previously mentioned, beginning with the hyoid bone.
