taxon notes

We use this class to group the medial and lateral pterygoids of mammals as well as the pterygoideus of amphibians and reptiles. Note that FEED includes a distinct class for the reptilian pterygoideus. In future, this branch of the ontology may be refined to include a more complete classification of jaw adductors across gnathostomes. See for example DOI:10.1134/S1062359010090050
