Examples from the Web for prootic
The squamosal is attached dorsoventrally to the posterior part of the parietal and to the lateral part of the prootic.
The prootic is an irregular bone below the ear region and lying in advance of the opisthotic.
At this place of attachment there is on the prootic a relatively heavy crest that forms a rather broad articulating base.
The alisphenoid is a small bone in the roof of the mouth before the prootic.
In Reptiles, the prootic and opisthotic frequently remain distinct even in the adult.The Works of Francis Maitland Balfour, Volume III (of 4)|Francis Maitland Balfour
