The ultrastructure of the cruciform muscle sense organ has been studied in Scrobicularia plana. Subepithelial neurons give rise to two different types of ciliated dendrite which pass through a thick basement membrane to insert between epithelial cells lining the sensory pit. Type I, comprising most dendrites have an elongated surface bearing up to 4 rows of 20 cilia, the basal bodies of which are linked in each row. These dendrites, it is suggested, receive unidirectional stimuli. Type II… CONTINUE READING
