|Bone: Pubis of pelvis|
|Gray's||subject #57 236|
- For the bone in many mammals often called the penis bone, see baculum
The body forms one-fifth of the acetabulum, contributing by its external surface both to the lunate surface and the acetabular fossa. Its internal surface enters into the formation of the wall of the lesser pelvis and gives origin to a portion of the obturator internus.
In the female, the pubic bone is anterior to the urethral sponge.
