It is to this antitragus, but proceeding from another direction, that the parotido-auricular muscle is inserted (Fig. 90, 15).
The genus Rhinolophus has a large nose leaf, and an antitragus to the ear.
The tragus ought normally to exceed the antitragus in dimensions.
The nose leaf is complicated, and there are only two phalanges in all the toes; there is no antitragus to the ear.
All bats have large ears, each of which contains a curious inner ear known as the “antitragus.”
antitragus an·ti·tra·gus (ān'tĭ-trā'gəs)
A projection of the auricle of the ear posterior to the tragus.
