Welcome

MorphoMuseuM, also referred to as M3, is a peer reviewed, online journal that publishes 3D models of vertebrates, including models of type specimens, anatomy atlases, reconstruction of deformed or damaged specimens, and 3D datasets (see https://doi.org/10.1017/scs.2017.14 for details).
M3 comes along with a free software, MorphoDig, which contains a set of tools for editing, positioning, deforming, labelling, measuring and rendering sets of 3D surfaces.

A delphinid petrosal bone from a gravesite on Ahu Tahai, Easter Island: taxonomic attribution, external and internal morphology.
Maëva Orliac, Catherine Orliac, Michel C. Orliac and Antoine Hautin
Keywords: bony labyrinth; petrosal; Rapanui; Stapes; vestibulo cochlear nerve

doi: 10.18563/journal.m3.91

  Abstract

    In this contribution, we describe the external and internal morphology of a delphinid petrosal bone collected from Ahu Tahai, a burial site located on the Southwestern coast of Easter Island, at Hangaroa. We discuss the taxonomic attribution of this archaeological item and describe its internal structures based on µCT data, including the bony labyrinth and the nerve and vein patterns. Identification of the nerves exists lead us to relocate the identification of the foramen singulare in delphinid petrosals.

3D models related to the publication: The ossicular chain of Cainotheriidae (Mammalia, Artiodactyla)
 
Alexandre Assemat, Mickaël Mourlam and Maëva Orliac
Keywords: Caenomeryx; incus; Late Oligocene; malleus; Stapes

doi: 10.18563/journal.m3.110

  Abstract

    This contribution includes the 3D models of the reconstructed ossicular chain of the cainotheriid Caenomeryx filholi from the late Oligocene locality of Pech Desse (MP28, Quercy, France) described and figured in the publication of Assemat et al. (2020). It represents the oldest ossicular chain reconstruction for a Paleogene terrestrial artiodactyl species.
