The pterygoid hamulus is a variable anatomical structure with its subdivisions: base, corpus, sulcus, and caput.
The majority of the skeletal anomalies observed in metolachlor-exposed fetuses consisted of absent xiphoid process (150 mg [kg.sup.-1] bw [day.sup.-1]), incomplete ossification of sternebra (300 and 1000 mg [kg.sup.-1] bw [day.sup.-1]), absent sternebra, incomplete ossification of xiphoid process and increased distance between hamulus and basisphenoid (1000 mg [kg.sup.-1] bw [day.sup.-1]).
The tensor veli palatini muscle from a relatively broad origin converges on a medial tendon, which passes around the hamulus of the medial pterygoid plate.8 At this point, the tendon is covered with a synovial sheet.9 The tendon is sufficiently broad to occupy most of the length of the hamulus,which is covered by its bursae.8,10 There is evidence that prima- ry function of tensor veli palatini muscle is to open the eustachian tube and not to induce tension on the soft palate.11 However, the tendon of these muscles forms the main element in the aponeurotic anterior portion of the soft palate.
In the hand, the ulnar nerve runs segmentally together with the ulnar artery in the ulnar eminence created by the hamulus of the hamate bone, pisiform bone, and transverse carpal ligament, which form the anatomical Guyon's canal [7-9].
The prenylflavonoid ioxanthohumol from hops (Hamulus lupulus L.) is activated into the potent phytoestrogen 8-prenylnaringenin in vitro and in the human intestine.
Shape of posterior projection of left pterygoid hamulus: 1- longer than wide (y > x); 2- wider than long, or equal (x > y).
(1992), but it differs from the latter in male body length 9.0-9.5 mm, frons equals in width or broader than the distance between outer margins of posterior ocelli, fronto-orbital plate and parafacial with cuprum-grey pruinosity, parafacial about 2.5 times as wide as first flagellomere, excess 1/2 the length of one eye, lower 1/3 of facial ridge with small setae, genal height about 3/5 of eye height, ial 0+2, posthumeral setae 1+1, mid tibia without pd, hind tibia with 1 av; surstylus triangle-shaped in profile, middle section of paraphallus broad and large, distal part of it with hamulus.
These included the difference in size between the front and back teeth, unusually thick and sturdy leg bones, and enlargement of a wrist bone called the hamulus.
Deep suspension sutures were then placed at the angles of the palate overlying the pterygoid hamulus. The nasopharyngeal mucosa was advanced, rotated anteriorly, and sutured to the oropharyngeal mucosa in order to restructure the soft palate.

Although with bootstrap values greater than 93 % and Hamulus as the outgroup, the medical cultivars are in one clade that is sister to the industrial hemp cultivars in a second clade (Fig.
