In Potos flavus the formation of a muscle has been reported from flexor carpi ulnaris muscle, which is named "Palmaris longus internus", but this originates from the fascia that covers the flexor carpi ulnaris muscle near the medial epicondyle of the humerus and inserts into the flexor retinaculum, and is innervated by the ulnar nerve (Beswick-Perrin, 1871; Julitz, 1909), differentiating in its position and origin to the accessory belly developed from the ulnar head of the flexor carpi ulnaris muscle in C.
