Cremasteric fascia
Latin fascia cremasterica
Gray's subject #118 414

As the cremaster descends, it forms a series of loops which differ in thickness and length in different subjects. At the upper part of the cord the loops are short, but they become in succession longer and longer, the longest reaching down as low as the testis, where a few are inserted into the tunica vaginalis. These loops are united together by areolar tissue, and form a thin covering over the cord and testis, the cremasteric fascia.

It is a continuation of the aponeurosis of the abdominal internal oblique muscle.[1]
