4 Appendicular Muscles - fish Originated as extensions of hypaxials of body wallPaired fins are appendicular (from myotome)Median dorsal fins are NOT appendicular, from myotome of epaxialsMedian ventral fins are NOT appendicular, from myotome of hypaxials
5 Osteichthyes skeleton Dorsal finsCaudal finPectoral finAnal finPelvic fin
6 Appendicular Muscles - fish Dorsal mass on paired fins are extensors or abductorsVentral mass on paired fins are flexors or adductors
30 Key PointsWhat are the most important flight muscles & what are their functions?Wrist & digit flexors are found on what side of the forearm?
