The latter inserts into the pyriform membrane only: none of its fibres insert into the pterygoid. The Phylogenetic Position of the Genus Anniella The genus Anniella was first described by Gray (1852) and grouped within the Scincidae. Cope (1864) established a separate family, the Anniellidae, and placed it, together with the Anelytropsidae and Acontiidae, within his tribe Typhlophthalmi. Boulenger (1884) was the first to place "Anniella near the Anguidae" (1884: 117). His classification of the Anniellidae between the Anguidae and the Helodermatidae appears to account for some platynotan resemblances of Anniella.

It has spread backwards along the descensus parietalis all along the mesial margin of the upper temporal fossa, but it does not extend anteriorly onto the lower surface of the parietal and postorbitofrontal. In V. bengalensis, some few fibres of the pseudotemporalis supeljicialis were found to take their origin from the alar process of the prootic just behind the epipterygoid. In V. niloticus and V. prasinus, the origin of the pseudotemporalis profundus does not reach up very high on the lateral surface of the epipterygoid.

The insertion of the pseudotemporalis 40 supeljicialis is into the anterior fan-shaped expansion of the bodenaponeurosis which rises up vertically from the apex of the coronoid process. In V. dumerilii the upper temporal fossa becomes nearly closed. The pseudotemporalis supeljicialis was found to be restricted to an anterior position in sharp contrast to all other varanids investigated. The origin of the muscle is from the lower surface of the parietal and postorbitofrontal in a way closely comparable with the situation described for Heloderma.
