French term or phrase: Costiforme???
L’apophyse costiforme se situe en regard de l’épineuse correspondante.

Could someone please translate this sentence. I’m having trouble with the word épineuse and in particular, the word costiforme, which appears several times in a document pertaining to the lumbar plexus.

Thanks for any help.

Explanation:
Apophyse épineuse: apophyse postérieure des vertèbres faisant saillie sous la peau.

Apophyse costiforme: je devinerais que "costiforme" est l'adjectif relatif aux côtes. Donc je le traduirais soit par" rib process" ou "rib-shaped".
