(an'tē-trā'gŭs), [TA]
A projection of the cartilage of the auricle, in front of the tail of the helix, just above the lobule, and posterior to the tragus from which it is separated by the intertragic notch.
[G. anti-tragos, the eminence of the external ear, fr. anti, opposite, + tragos, a goat, the tragus]

Diagnosis of paralarvae: Mantle tubular and thin; head small, with statoliths clearly visible through posterior transparent tissue; neck transparent, chambered brachial pillar showing the inner central esophagus and muscular stripes; eyes oval or elongate (width slightly greater than lens diameter) with thick reflective tissue covering a distinct structure, possibly a photophore; funnel-locking cartilage oval with single antitragus. Chromatophore patterns: DHCP = 2 + 4, VHCP = 2 + 2, DBCP = 1 near base of AI, VBCP = 3 in transverse line at base of AIV and tentacles, 5 to 6 on buccal mass.
