Entepicondylar Foramen

Distal opening for blood vessels and nerves on the medial surface of the primate humerus; used as a diagnostic key and considered primitive. Found in prosimians and some platyrrhines, among extant primates, and still retained in the extinct parapithecids, suggesting they had not reached the catarrhine grade.
