The longitudinal constriction of the taeniae coli force the wall of the large intestine between the bands to pouch out into a longitudinal series of sacculations called the haustra coli. Semilunar mucosal folds on the internal surface of the colon are formed as a result of the formation of the haustra on the external surface. Follow the three taeniae coli from the cecum to the sigmoid colon.

Epiploic appendages are fat-filled outpouchings of the visceral peritoneum, which cover the large intestine. They are found along the large intestine, except on the surface of the rectum, anal canal and vermiform appendix.
