Sonntag 1924; our dissections). Regarding the adult VU GG1 specimen previously described by us (Diogo et al. 2010), on the right side the omohyoideus had a single belly, with no intermediate tendon or tendinous intersection, running from the hyoid bone to the anteromesial portion of the scapula, just laterally to the insertion of the levator claviculae; on the left side the attachments were similar, but there was a small tendinous intersection (but not a distinct, well-defined intermediate tendon such as that usually found in humans) in the middle of the muscle.

Sternothyroideus (weight not measured; Fig. 4) • Attachments: From sternum and adjacent regions to oblique line of thyroid cartilage. • Usual innervation: Cervical plexus (Sommer 1907); branches of ansa hypoglossi (C1, C2, C3; Raven 1950). • Notes: Fig. 20 of Raven (1950) seems to suggest that in the gorilla dissected by him the sternothyroideus had a tendinous intersection such as that present in at least some humans, chimpanzees, hylobatids, and some other primate and nonprimate taxa. Fürbringer (1872) reported such an intersection in another gorilla specimen, but Deniker (1885) stated that there was no tendinous intersection in the gorilla fetus dissected by him.

For instance, it was absent in 2 out of 2 gorillas dissected by Sarmiento (1994) and in 10 out of 11 gorillas reported in the literature reviewed by that author, and was also absent in the gorilla dissected by Susman et al. (1999) and in 3 of the 4 gorillas dissected by Preuschoft (1965), and in one of the adult gorillas dissected by us (Diogo et al.
