Excerpt from Journal of Morphology, Vol. 24: 1913
In general the most important evidence for homologizing the quadrate and articular of reptiles with the incus and malleus respectively of mammals lies in the parallel, essentially identical, topographic relations and mode of d... evelopment of these two sets of elements in the two classes. This parallelism in topographic relations and in development although marked by wide adaptive differences, is so fundamental, so extensive, so complex, that the possibility of these resemblances being accidental or due to convergent evolution seems practically excluded.
