According to Gantzer and Ringhofer (in Hwang & Hill et al.), this supernumerary muscle is originated at the fibula; according to Macalister (in Turner), Kolliker (in LeDouble), Wood, Testut, and Morestin (in LeDouble), at the peroneus brevis muscle; Theile (in Hwang & Hill et al.) has described its origin at the tibia; Turner has described its origin both at the tibia's medial margin and at the fibula and its end at the anterior surface of the quadratus plantae muscle; Davies-Colley and Dalton have observed other sites (in LeDouble).
