editor note

TODO - check AAO:0000521-pterygoid and MA:0001471-pterygoid bone. MA also has 'inner plate of pterygoid process' as a syn for MA:0001471, FMA has lateral/medial plates. Seems likely inner = lateral (see MP:0004452).

external definition

Process that projects from posterior margin of commissure into subocular space.[AAO]
