su·per·fi·cial fib·u·lar nerve

[TA]
a branch of the common fibular (peroneal) nerve that passes downward in the lateral compartment of the leg to supply the fibularis (peroneus) longus and brevis muscles and terminate as the intermediate and medial dorsal cutaneous nerves supplying the skin of the dorsum of the foot and toes (except for adjacent sides of great and second toes).

(sū'pĕr-fish'ăl fib'yū'lăr nĕrv) [TA]
Branch of common fibular (peroneal) nerve that passes downward in lateral compartment of the leg to supply fibularis longus and brevis muscles and terminate as intermediate and medial dorsal cutaneous nerves supplying skin of dorsum of foot and toes (except for adjacent sides of great and second toes).
Synonym(s): musculocutaneous nerve of leg, nervus fibularis superficialis, nervus peroneus superficialis, superficial peroneal nerve.

superficial peroneal nerve

One of the two major branches of the common peroneal nerve formed as the latter winds around the proximal neck of the fibula. The superficial peroneal nerve runs along the lateral leg, innervating the skin along the anterior surface of the leg and the dorsal surface of the foot and the peroneus longus and brevis muscles.
