Macalister reports peroneus tertius as follows:
Fibularis Tertius (Peroneus Tertius) was found absent in 6.1% of lower limbs. Fibularis Tertius arose from the distal fibula and in all cases inserted onto the dorsal surface of the shafts of both the 4th and 5th metatarsals according to Rourke et al. Peroneus tertius and Fibularis Tertius are co-listed (p.42) in Terminologia Anatomia, FIPAT, 2011 and adopted by IFAA (International Federation of Anatomical Associations).
