- buccal frame
- structure of brachyuran decapods enclosing mouth parts, its sides formed by free anterolateral edges of carapace, its front delimited by epistome, and commonly closed by operculiform third maxillipeds [Moore and McCormick, 1969].(Order Decapoda):In crab-like (brachyuran) decapod, well-defined, frame-like depression on underside of head; contains mouthparts (labrum, mandibles, maxillules, maxillae, maxillipeds, labium) and may be covered by expanded (operculiform) maxillipeds. (quadrate, triangular). See: endostome [Stachowitsch, 1992].(Infraorder Brachyura):Structural region of cephalon enclosing mouthparts [McLaughlin, 1980].
