Abstract
    The general goal of this dissertation is to document the structural patterns and evolutionary changes in the head musculoskeletal system of several Anguilliform taxa in relation to different trends of specializations, such as (1) jaw elongation (Hoplunnis punctata: Nettastomatidae), (2) head-first burrowing (Pythonichthys macrurus: Heterenchelyidae), (3) parasitic feeding (Simenchelys parasiticus :Simenchelyinae; Synaphobranchidae), (4) a pharyngeal system for mechanical transport of captured prey in muraenids, and (5) extraordinarly modified cephalic system in Eurypharynx pelecanoides (Eurypharyngidae).
