We just learned about the Antihelix.

On the outer ear we know about:
- The auricle or pinna, which is the main outside part of the ear
- The helix, which is the folded over part around the outside
- The antihelix, which is the Y shaped bump that sticks out

Another part of the ear is the Antitragus.

Going up from the bottom of the ear and just connected to the earlobe is the antitragus.
It is a bump that is pointing up.
The shape of this part of the ear helps bring in sounds the way your body wants to hear them.

(from: wikipedia - antitragus)
