      The masseter muscle is closer to posterior circle in the diagram.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Kenneth Hughes, MD                                                                                                                   Los Angeles, CA

The posterior circle is closer to the Masseter and it extends to just below that area along the jaw.
