How are they related to convergent evolution?
Homologus and analogus structures are both parts that serve similar function but, homologus share an eveloutionary origin and analogus do not.
Homologus – Leg of a horse and leg of donkey. Both come from the same evolutionary lineage.
Analogus – wing of a bat and wing of an insect – Both serve similar purpose but they are not from the same evolutionary lineage.
Simply put, homologous developed the same, analogous developed similarily, but not identically.
I hope this helped!
