Anatomical terms of bone

The zygomatico-orbital foramina are two canals in the skull, orifices of which are seen on the orbital process of the zygomatic bone.

One of these canals opens into the temporal fossa, the other on the malar surface of the bone.

The former transmits the zygomaticotemporal, the latter the zygomaticofacial nerve.
