Genital Femoral Nerve
- arises from L1 and L2;
- in abdomen, it descends on anterior surface of Psoas and then divides into genital and femoral branches;
- genital branch innervates cremaster muscle and gives twigs to scrotum and adjacent thigh;
- femoral branch passes under inguinal ligament & supplies skin of femoral triangle
