This line coincides with the transversus perineus muscle.
QL resides in the area between psoas major and psoas minor muscles and the tendon of origin of transversus abdominis.
"Your external muscles can start to work hard to the point where your core muscles"--the diaphragm, pelvic floor, transversus abdominis and multifidus, all deep under the surface--"decide to take a backseat." The real core challengers, in her view, "are simple movements that require a refined sense of stability in the torso." For instance: a knee-fold while lying on your back, in neutral alignment, maintaining torso stability while breathing.
In some taxa, there are specializations to some environments (e.g., estuarine environments in Grapsoidea and Portunoidea and nearshore/offshore in Majoidea); but exceptions are associated with habitat specialization (e.g., Pacliygrapsus transversus in grapsoid or Halicarcinus rostratus in majoid crabs, see Table 4).
