Table 1 Comparison of adductor muscles in the coelacanth (Latimeria), Australian lungfish (Neoceratodus) and mudpuppy (Necturus)

From: Comparative pelvic development of the axolotl (Ambystoma mexicanum) and the Australian lungfish (Neoceratodus forsteri): conservation and innovation across the fish-tetrapod transition

Latimeria chalumnae Neoceratodus forsteri Necturus maculosus
Superficial adductor, main bundle « Abaisseur superficiel, faiseau principal » (Ventral) O:posterior border of the mesial hypophysis
I: fascia attaching to the base of lepidotrichia
Superficial ventromesial adductor (Dorsal and ventral) O: Median posteroventral margin of the pelvis and the superficial ventromesial adductor from the other side (for the mesialmost fibres).
I: Distal medial process on the first axial element and on radials

Ischioflexorius (Adductor) (Ventral) O: caudal end of the ischium
I: Fascia of the distal end of the shank.
Deep adductor « Abaisseur profond » (Ventral) O: Middle of the pubis and posterior part of the pubic ramus.
I: through tendons onto the fascia of the superficial adductor, main bundle
Superficial ventro-lateral adductor (Ventral) O: Median posteroventral margin of the pelvis
I: Distal medial process on the first axial element and radials
Puboischio-tibialis (Adductor) (Ventral) O: Ventral and caudal part of the pubis, most of the ischium
I: Proximal end of the tibia
Pronators 1+2+3 (Dorsal) O: very middle of the pubis on dorsal side
I: 3 first preaxial radials and 10 first preaxial lepidotrichia
Deep ventral adductor depressor (Dorsal) O: Posterodorsal and posteroventral faces of the pelvis
I: Base of first fin element
Ischiofemoralis (Adductor) (Ventral) O: Ischium I:Proximal end of the femur
Fin adductor «Adducteur de la nageoire» (Dorsal) O :Arcuate ridge on the dorsal side
I: Fascia of the 5th pronator and base of the 9th and 10th lepidotrichia.
Dorsomesial adductor levator (dorsal) O: Arcuate ridge (posterior dorsal part, anterior to the acetabulum)
I: Proximal and subsequent fin elements
   
Latimeria chalumnae Neoceratodus forsteri Necturus maculosus
    Mesial adductor (Dorsal) O: Muscles of fin elements from one side
I: Muscles of fin elements from the other side
   
       Puboischio-femoralis externus (Adductor) (Ventral) O: ventral surface of the girdle/Pubis and ischium
I: Proximal end of the femur
