Taverne (1972, 1977b, 1978) stated that in the osteoglossomorphs Hiodon, Xenomystus and Mormyrus there is no "process of the posttemporal for the intercalar" (that is, there is no ossification of the ligament mentioned in the present character).
1] Such a peculiar configuration of the posttemporal is only found in the specimens examined of the osteoglossomorph genera Hiodon, Xenomystus and Mormyrus (see e.
elopomorph fishes such as Elops, Megalops and Albula and osteoglossomorph fishes such as Hiodon and Mormyrus, in which the mesocoracoid arch articulates ventrally with the coracoid and/ or scapula and, thus, in which this arch has some mobility in relation to these latter bones (e.
It should be noted that, despite being poorly developed, there is a maxillary articulatory facet for the autopalatine/ dermopalatine in the specimens examined of the osteoglossomorph genera Hiodon, Pantodon and Xenomystus (it was however not possible to discern if this is also the case, or not, in the Mormyrus specimens dissected).
