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.
