The degree and complexity of the intersection of the la varies from species to species. An additional 38 Fig. 10: The trigeminal jaw musculature of Varanus salvator subdivision of the la is brought about by short tendons which originate from the lateral edge of the upper temporal arch. On the mesial surface of these tendons originate fibres, which functionally belong to the dorsal half of the pinnate lb. Upon removal of the levator anguli oris these fibres will also be removed, leaving the pinnate lb-Iayer with its intersected structure typical of varanid lizards (Fig.
The evaluation of these characters leads to the suggestion that the Xenosauridae may be derived from the transitional field leading from the primitive gerrhonotines to the anguine-diploglossine ancestor. The Xenosauridae have followed a divergent specialisation from the beginning of their history what justifies the classification of Shinisaurus and Xenosaurus within two different subfamilies. This conclusion recquires the assumption of a parallel development of the epipterygoid head of the pseudotemporalis profundus in advanced gerrhemotines and in Xenosaurus.
Varanus shows a spread of the insertions in comparison with Lanthanotus. levator anguli oris of Lanthanotus originates from the lateral edge of the parietal and of the supratemporal as well as of the squamosal. The origin is extended onto the laterodorsal edge of the anterior head of the cephalic condyle of the quadrate. These fibres insert into the dorsal bend of the rictal plates. They are intersected by a short tendon which extends from the dorsal bend of the rictal plate in a posterodorsal direction (Fig.
