correspondence in size, form, and arrangement of parts on opposite sides of a plane, or around an axis. adj., adj symmet´rical.
bilateral symmetry the configuration of an irregularly shaped body (such as the human body or that of higher animals) that can be divided by a longitudinal plane into halves that are mirror images of each other.
radial symmetry that in which the body parts are arranged regularly around a central axis.

sym·me·try

(sim'ĕ-trē),
Equality or correspondence in form of parts distributed around a center or an axis, at the extremities or poles, or on the opposite sides of any body.
