Apparent absence of claustrum in monotremes: implications for forebrain evolution in amniotes.

The claustrum, which comprises the claustrum proper and the endopiriform nucleus, is generally thought to be present in all mammals. Some previous reports of its possible absence in monotremes have appeared in the literature, but the question of its presence or absence in this clade has not been formally addressed.
