Are the funnel-canal organs the ‘campaniform sensilla’ of the shore crab, Carcinus maenas (Decapoda, Crustacea)?
SummaryThe funnel-canal organs on the dactyls of the shore crab, Carcinus maenas, are innervated by 3–24 sensory cells with unbranched dendrites, which attain a length of 500–1400 μm. The outerExpand
