One of two processes near the head of the femur, the outer being called the great trochanter, and the inner the small trochanter.
The third joint of the leg of an insect, or the second when the trochantine is united with the coxa.
Large processes near the head of the femur.
the leg segment between the coxa and the femur.
Podomer of insect or acarine leg that articulates distally with the femur (usually fixed to the femur in insects).
Either of the two processes below the neck of the femur. The greater trochanter is a broad, flat process at the upper and lateral surface of the femur to which several muscles are attached. The lesser trochanter is a short conical process projecting medially from the base of the neck of the femur.
one of the bony prominences developed near the upper extremity of the femur to which muscles are attached
a protuberance on the surface of a bone to which a muscle is attached
A muscle attachment site found on the Femur of some dinosaurs
Greek = a runner; hence, the bony landmark, the greater trochanter, which moves so obviously in running.
large blunt process on a bone; best known on the upper aspect of the femur
The second article of the insect leg, distad of the coxa and proximad of the femur. See leg segments.
The second segment of a leg, between the coxa and femur.
The trochanter is a bony bump on the femur (the thigh bone) to which large muscles are attached.
( Tro-can-ter): the short, 2nd segment of the insect leg, between the coxa (first segment) and femur.
The second section of the leg, between the coxa and femur (Figs 62A, 63).
Second segment of a leg that articulates basally with the coxa and apically with the femur. [drawing][photo
