This class is restricted to skeletal muscles that attach to the cranial skeleton. This seems to be consistent with FMA and EMAPA usage. Note that by definition this excludes invertebrate head musculature. It corresponds to the individual muscle organ term UBERON:0002376

has exact synonym

head musculature
muscle group of head
musculi capitis
muscles of head
set of muscles of head
