Superficial lobe of the submandibular gland- the paralingual space is found in the floor of the mouth, deep to the mylohyoid muscle. the space is bounded by the lateral tongue, the hyoid bone, and the oral mucosa. remember-the submandibular gland has a deep and superficial portion. the deep portion of the submandibular gland is found deep to the mylohyoid muscle, while the superficial portion of the submandibular gland is found superficial to the mylohyoid muscle. so, the deep portion of the submandibular gland is in the paralingual space, while the superficial portion of the submandibular gland is not. see netter plate 55 for a picture of this. the paralingual space also contains the submandibular duct and sublingual caruncle, the lingual nerve and submandibular ganglion, the hypoglossal nerve, and the sublingual gland and fold.
