Term information

curator notes

The class name or definition should not be taken to mean strictly in the lateral ocular region. We place the extraocular lacrimal glands, even though they are as the name suggests outside the ocular region. The class exists as the division between lateral vs medial (Harderian, nictitans) glands is standard, e.g. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/7559104
