alternative definition added about 12 years ago by Istvan Miko
"In Scelionidae, one extrinsic muscle of the antenna, the cranio-antennal muscle, originates from the frons. Both the precise site of insertion and the function of this muscle are unknown, but it may be homologous with one of the extrinsic muscles originating from the tentorium in other Hymenoptera."
