Conoid tubercle

The conoid tubercle also known as the coracoid tuberosity (not to be confused with the coracoid process of the scapula) is a bony prominence on the inferior surface of the lateral third of the clavicle

It marks the insertion of the conoid ligament (which along with the trapezoid ligament) forms part of the coracoclavicular ligament complex.

They can be quite prominent and hypertrophied.
