Innervation of the lateral line system in Rhyacichthys aspro: the origin of superficial neuromast rows in gobioids (Perciformes: Rhyacichthyidae)
TLDR
Absence of bony roofs in the lateral line system was proposed as a synapomorphy of Gobioidei, and a progressive neotenic shift in theateral line system of the suborder discussed was proposed. Expand
The trunk lateral line system and its innervation in Mugil cephalus (Mugilidae: Mugiliformes)
TLDR
The innervation pattern revealed that the sixth lateral line was anteriorly regressive, suggesting that the high insertion of the pectoral fin on the trunk is a secondary condition. Expand
Fluorescent dye staining of neuromasts in live fishes: an aid to systematic studies
TLDR
During attempts to visualize the superficial neuromasts in cyprinid and gobioid fishes, the dye was surprisingly effective for that purpose, even in large (adult) fishes, and the potential of the dye for improving descriptions of the lateral line system in systematic studies became apparent. Expand
The innervation and adaptive significance of extensively distributed neuromasts in Glossogobius olivaceus (Perciformes: Gobiidae)
Components of the lateral line system and their innervation were examined in Glossogobius olivaceus (Gobiidae), with almost all of the trunk scales bearing a row of superficial neuromasts, the latterExpand
Description and innervation of the lateral line system in two gobioids, Odontobutis obscura and Pterogobius elapoides (Teleostei: Perciformes)
TLDR
Homologies of the neuromast rows on the head and body were discussed on the basis of their innervation patterns, indicating that the ld and lv series represented a mixture of displaced rows (from lm series) and new additional rows. Expand
The lateral line system and its innervation in Lateolabrax japonicus (Percoidei incertae sedis) and two apogonids (Apogonidae), with special reference to superficial neuromasts (Teleostei:
TLDR
The lateral line system and its innervation were examined in a generalized perch-like species, Lateolabrax japonicus, and compared with those in two species of Apogonidae characterized by proliferated superficial neuromasts (SNs) on the head, trunk lateral line scales and caudal fin. Expand
Innervation of the lateral line system in the blind cavefish Astyanax mexicanus (Characidae) and comparisons with the eyed surface-dwelling form
TLDR
The lateral line system and its innervation were examined in the blind cavefish Astyanax mexicanus (Characidae) and compared with that in the eyed surface-dwelling form of the same species, finding superficial neuromasts in both forms greatly proliferated. Expand
Branching patterns of trunk lateral line nerves in Pleuronectiformes: uniformity and diversity
TLDR
Primary modifications of the course of the middle trunk lateral line were detected by nerve information, the arched part of the lateral line having been secondarily highly elevated in some genera of Pleuronectidae, but secondarily straightened in Samaridae. Expand
Lateral line system in the triplefin Enneapterygius etheostomus (Perciformes: Tripterygiidae): new implications for taxonomic studies
TLDR
Comparisons of neuroanatomical characteristics with those of New Zealand tripterygiids previously reported revealed significant differences, thereby indicating that detailed examination of the lateral line system could provide new information useful for taxonomic studies. Expand
Ambiguities in the identification of batoid lateral line systems clarified by innervation
TLDR
Topographic definitions of the canal elements have failed to recognize homologies within batoids for the scapular and hyomandibular canals, and innervation of the lateral line canal system in seven batoid species provided a reliable basis for the identification of each canal element. Expand
