quadrate-articular jointGo to external page http://purl.obolibrary.org/obo/UBERON_0011170
A skeletal joint that connects quadrate and articular bones. [ http://evolution.berkeley.edu/evolibrary/article/evograms_05 https://orcid.org/0000-0002-6601-2165 ]
over time, the synapsids' quadrate-articular jaw joint (which the rest of the tetrapods possess) was replaced by a dentary-squamosal joint (which all living mammals possess), while the quadrate and articular migrated, shrank, and became part of the complex of middle ear bones.
