We describe the numbers, central positions, and axonal exit routes of the distal leg motor neurons of four decapod species: squat lobsters (Munida quadrispina), spiny sand crabs (Blepharipoda occidentalis), mole sand crabs (Emerita analoga), and signal crayfish (Pacifastacus leniusculus). As predicted by previous physiological and anatomical identification of axons at the periphery in crayfish and lobsters, cobalt backfills reveal about seventeen cell bodies, which are found in four areas in… CONTINUE READING
