As we compared the tendinous and myological structures we realized that some of the myological differences we encountered could have important phylogenetic implications.
In this work I will describe the myological and osteological structures of both the cephalic region and the pectoral girdle of the heptapterin Heptapterus mustelinus (Valenciennes, 1836) ('Nemuroglanis clade'), and compare these structures with those of two representatives of the other main, more plesiomorphic, heptapterin group, namely Goeldiella eques (Muller & Troschel, 1948) and Rhamdia guatemalensis (Gunther, 1864) ('basal clade') (see Lundberg et al.
A phylogenetic analysis for the Sciaenidae by Sasaki (1989) that used morphological, osteological, and myological evidence concluded that Seriphus is broadly separated from Cynoscion by possessing the following characters: an enlarged and anteriorly located toothplate on the pharyngobranchial 2, the flexor ventralis externus fades into the flexor ventralis, the basiphenoid is separate from the parasphenoid ventrally, a dentary foramen is present, there is a secondary reversal from an enlarged and anteriorly located tooth plate on pharyngobranchial 2, the posterior dorsal fin spines are not exposed, and the soft dorsal and anal fin bases are of equal length.
