maybe should this relation be discarded:

'In most living diapsids (some lizards, snakes, crocodiles, and birds) as well as all mammals, additional folds of coelomic epithelium separate de paired pleural recesses from the rest of the pleuroperitoneal cavity. The coelom of these animals thus consists of four compartments: the pericardial cavity, two pleural cavities, and the peritoneal cavity. [...] In reptiles and birds, the folds separating the pleural cavities from the peritoneal cavity form the oblique septum. In mammals, the separation between the two pleural cavities and the peritoneal cavity develops by the pleuroperitoneal membranes, which push in from the dorsolateral body wall, and by other folds that extend laterally from the mesenteries and medially from the body wall to meet the pleuroperitoneal membranes.'
