Haustra are the series of pouches / dilatations that are present in wall of caecum and colon between the teniae giving large intestine a wrinkle appearance.


Teniae coli are Bands of longitudinal muscle fibres that are present all over the colon. These converge at proximally at base of appendix and spread out distally to continue along the longitudinal muscle layer of the rectum. And teniae coli is an cardinal feature of large intestine.

Appendices epiploicae are the fat filled bags of visceral peritoneum attached to the teniae coli and are unique to large intestine.
