The head musculature as described and discussed above leads to the formulation of a possible phylogeny of anguinomorph lizards which differs to some extent from ideas put forward by other authors (McDowell and Bogert, 1954; Russell, 1967; Meszoely, 1970). Most of this earlier work is based on skull structure. In view of discrepancies of interpretation it becomes now necessary to test the phylogeny of anguinomorph lizards based on the structure of their head musculature by an investigation of the skull.
