ABSTRACT
Se describe la musculatura craneal de Tropidurus melanopleurus. La misma coincide en general con la exhibida por otros Tropiduridae, para los cuales se ha postulado poseen un patrón miológico común que a la vez formaría parte de uno generalizado asignable a otros iguanios. Se destacan sin embargo como características propias para T. melanoleurus, la presencia de un mandibulohyoideus III y la ausencia de un sternothyroideus diferenciado. The cranial myology of Tropidurus melanopleurus is described. It agrees with that exhibited by other Tropiduridae, that present a common myological pattern that is included in the most generalized pattern for other iguanians. Specific characteristics that stand out are related to the presence of mandibulohyoideus III and to the absence of a differentiated sternothyroideus.
