- Of or relating to the Hylidæ.
- noun One of the Hylidæ.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
If there ` s anything left of the hyloid, maybe we could see a fracture of that to show strangulation.
If an autopsy has been done, you still approach it in that same fashion, but you would certainly have a reasonable basis to assume that some things had been looked for such as the fracture of the skull, fractures of the cartilage and the structures in the neck, the small bone, the hyloid bone, high up in the neck underneath the mandible, to indicate strangulation.
