#73 hyoid apparatus


This should go under hyoid bone, which SHOULD be under larynx (but the term hyoid bone is missing from there too and incorrectly listed under viscerocranium bone). See JPS for details.

    Do you have a definition for hyoid apparatus? Maybe the position should be reversed (hyoid bone part_of a hyoid apparatus)?

    There is some confusion over the term "viscerocranium". I recommend using either "facial skeleton" for bones of the face and "splanchoncranium" for the endoskeletal arch derivatives. The latter includes the hyoid by definition. Whether the former contains the hyoid may be arbitrary. I believe the intent of the current MA term "viscerocranium" is the facial bones sense.
