anal erectors, erectores anales
Series of muscles that have a distal attachment at the anteriolateral base of each ray and spike and a proximal attachment to the haemal spines. A tendon runs along one third the dorsoventral length of the muscle toward the attachment at the haemal spine. These muscles act in opposition to the anal depressors to raise the anal fin rays.
