below the eye. Name applied to the first six circumorbital bones: suborbital 1 (lachrymal or preorbital), suborbital 2 (jugal), suborbital 3 (true postorbital), suborbitals 4 and 5, and suborbital 6 (dermosphenotic). Also called infraorbital bones. Associated with the infraorbital lateral line. Sometimes reserved for a chain of small bones below the infraorbitals and unrelated to the infraorbital sensory canal, e.g. in palaeoniscoids, usually absent in advanced fishes
