  1. Hallux

    In tetrapods, the hallux is the innermost toe of the foot. Despite its name it may not be the longest toe on the foot of some individuals. It is counted as digit I. The adjective form is "hallucal". The name stems from the Latin for the same, similar to the pollex, which refers to the thumb, the corresponding digit of the hand.
