The symphysis is very narrow and pointed, with a long and narrow inferior ridge, not expanding markedly at either extremity.

These arise, above, on each side of the symphysis of the inferior maxillary bone.

They generally meet the corresponding elements of the opposite side ventrally, and form a symphysis with them.
