The clitoral crura are an internal portion of the clitoris. A single one is called a clitoral crus. They are shaped like an inverted "V" with the vertex of the "V" connecting to the clitoral body. They are near the vestibular bulbs, also known as the clitoral bulbs.

They are to the left and right of the urethra, urethral sponge, and vagina and extend back toward the pubic bone.

The clitoral crura contain muscles called the ischiocavernosi.[citation needed]

"Crus" basically translates as "leg", thus "crura" as "legs".
