Anatomical terminology

The rima vestibuli is a space in the laryngeal cavity.

It is to the vestibular ligaments (vestibular folds once covered with mucus membrane) what the rima glottidis is to the vocal ligaments (vocal folds once covered with mucus membrane) - the space formed when the folds are separated. It can be defined as the space in between the false vocal cords.
