In this study, one of the nerves that provide the innervation of the wolf's eyelids and ear, n. It was aimed to determine the course and branching of the auriculopalpebralis. For this purpose, 5 wolf skulls were used. The materials were firstly fixed in 10% formaldehyde and were examined macroanatomically after their dissections. In the study, it was determined that n.auriculopalpebralis is a branch of the cranial brain nerves, n.facialis (7th brain nerve). Nervus auriculopalpebralis, near the caudal edge of the mandible n. facialis emerged as a single branch from its dorsal edge and then in the cranioventral of porus acusticus externus. It was determined that it was divided into two branches called n. auricularis rostralis and r. zygomaticus. As a result of the study, n. auricularis rostralis, while innervating the skin of the surrounding area with the mm.auricularis rostralis, r. zygomaticus lower and upper eyelid, m. orbicularis oculi and m. corrugator supercilii was innervated.
