  • ABSTRACT Morphological variation in the avian palatal skeleton (palatum osseum) was publicized by Huxley (1867) and expanded upon subsequently by many authors, but variation in the included nominal element, the palatinum (os palatinum), is less well known. Here we describe, illustrate, and name variable features of the avian palatinum that we judge to be potentially important for phylogenetic inference. To standardize anatomical nomenclature, we introduce formal names (per ICAAN) and revise… CONTINUE READING
