Orientation of the lateral semicircular canal of the inner ear within the skull of extant xenarthrans (Mammalia). Upper skull: in the extant armadillo Dasypus kappleri. Lower skull: in the extant three-toed sloth Bradypus tridactylus. The red lines mark the plane of the lateral semicircular canal, which is more oblique in armadillos than in sloths (relative to the palate).

The major morphological changes in key internal structures during blow fly metamorphosis are documented with micro-CT. A quantitative analysis of the development of selected organ systems is provided for the first time in cyclorrhaphous dipterans

We describe the m. interhyoideus and m. hyohyoideus each as an independent component in P. senegalus. The m. hyohyoideus develops near the external gill muscles and is probably derived from the m. constrictor hyoideus dorsalis.
