Description:
The Rhomboideus minor arises from the lower part of the ligamentum nuchae and from the spinous processes of the seventh cervical and first thoracic vertebrae. It isinserted into the base of the triangular smooth surface at the root of the spine of the scapula, and is usually separated from the Rhomboideus major by a slight interval, but the adjacent margins of the two muscles are occasionally united.
