They are situated mainly around the humerus. Members include: l Brachialis l Biceps brachii l Triceps brachii l Anconeus l Tensor fasciae antebrachii The last three muscles in this group are extensors of the elbow joint. 44 MUSCULAR SYSTEM OF VERTEBRATES (xvi) Rotators of the forearm This group of muscles rotates the radius and ulna resulting into supination and pronation. In species where movements between radius and ulna are limited, these muscles are rudimentary. Included in this group are; (a) Supinators: Brachioradialis Supinator (b) Pronators: Pronator quadratus Pronator teres (xvii) Muscles of the carpal joint These are long slender muscles causing extension and flexion of the carpal joint.
