lateral process of basiventral, parapophyses, transverse process
Parapophyses are lateral or ventrolateral projections of vertebrae to which ribs are attached in Danio rerio. Parapophyses can arise through replacement ossification of a basiventral or form directly in bone. They are separated from the centrum in basal teleosts, e.g., Leptolepis coryphaenoides, Megalops and Elops.
