The omohyoid muscle is a muscle that depresses the hyoid . It is located at the front of the neck and consists of two bellies separated by an intermediate tendon . Its superior belly serves as the most lateral member of the infrahyoid muscles , located lateral to both the sternothyroid and thyrohyoid muscles. [1] Its name derives from the Greek "omos" meaning shoulder, giving one of its attachments, and " hyoid ", giving the other attachment - the hyoid bone.

The central tendon of omohyoid (i.e., the tendon between the inferior and superior bellies) is attached to the clavicle by a fibrous expansion of the cervical fascia.
