The structure indicated is the pronator teres muscle.
The pronator teres is one of four muscles in the superficial layer of muscles in the anterior compartment of the forearm. The anterior compartment of the forearm consists of three layers of muscles:
- Superficial layer
- Intermediate layer
- Deep layer
Four muscles are located in the superficial layer (from lateral to medial):
- Flexor carpi ulnaris
- Palmaris longus
- Flexor carpi radialis
- Pronator teres
All four muscles of the superficial layer have a common origin on the medial epicondyle of the humerus.
Origin: humeral head - medial epicondyle of humerus; ulnar head – coronoid process
Insertion: middle of lateral radial surface
Action: pronation, weak flexor of elbow
Innervation: median nerve
