Definition of ceratobranchial in English:
Each of the paired ventral cartilaginous sections of the branchial arch in fishes.
- In Amia, as in many actinopterygian fishes, the ceratobranchials do much of the mundane work and heavy lifting.
- The inner surface of the right operclc can be observed, and also some branchial arch elements such as the ceratobranchial and hypobranchial.
- Thus, each of the branchial arches, the arches which actually function as respiratory arches in fishes, has an epibranchial and a ceratobranchial.
