Bony bridging of the hypoglossal canal was observed in 10% of 160 Japanese fetal crania. The incidence was slightly lower than that in any Japanese adult cranial series compared. The anatomical nature of the bridging in fetuses was substantially the same as that in adults. It was inferred that in the majority of cases the bridging trait makes its appearance during the fetal period. These findings were discussed from the anthropological point of view.
