Definition:Roof of the buccal cavity, formed from the fusion of vomer, pterygoid, parasphenoid, palatine, ectopterygoid.
Comment:[homology-note] "Early tetrapod possessed a primary palate that included the vomer, pterygoid, parasphenoid, palatine and ectopterygoid bones. Therapsid evolved a partial secondary palate formed by the medial extension of the premaxilla and maxilla. Mammals have a secondary palate that, in addition to extensions of the premaxilla and maxilla, includes part of the palatine bone[VHOG]" xsd:string {date_retrieved="2012-11-28", external_class="VHOG:0000362", ontology="VHOG", source="ISBN:978-0072528305 Kardong", source="http://bgee.unil.ch/"}
