Anterior to the otic capsule the lateral wall of the braincase cannot be seen, and may not have been ossified.
Posterior to the formation of the crista parotica, the ventral part of the otic process splits.
Laterally this bone is deeply emarginate; posteriorly it forms a large part of the otic notch, through which the columella passes.
