Abstract

We have analyzed anatomic variations in the pectoralis major and pectoralis minor muscles of common chimpanzees (Pan

have macroscopically dissected these muscles in six adult Pan troglodytes, five Pan paniscus of ages ranging from fetus to adult, and

muscle in three of the Pan troglodytes; none of the Pan paniscus, however, had this muscle. We have also found deep supernumerary

inserted at the supraspinatus tendon, while, in Pan paniscus and Homo sapiens, it was inserted at the coracoid process of the scapula.

in humans, therefore enhancing our knowledge of primate comparative anatomy and evolution and also shedding light on several

clinical issues.
