Note that the darkened muscle attached to the tendon of palmaris longus, enters the hypothenar muscle mass. The muscle inserts by a long thin tendon onto the base of the fifth metacarpal on its medial side. The muscle traverses the canal of Guyon where it may compress the ulnar artery and ulnar nerve.
From Calori,1868
