Gluteus Minimus Muscle

The gluteus minimus muscle lies beneath the gluteus medius and is its companion in attachments and functions. Its fibers extend from the ilium to the femur, and they function to move the thigh out and rotate it medially. Both muscles lie beneath the superficial and largest of the posterior thigh muscles, the gluteus maximus.
