The anatomical characteristics of the mechanoreceptive lateral line system and electrosensory ampullae of Lorenzini of Rhinobatos typus and Aptychotrema rostrata are compared. The spatial distribution of somatic pores of both sensory systems is quite similar, as lateral line canals are bordered by electrosensory pore fields. Lateral line canals form a sub-epidermal, bilaterally symmetrical net on the dorsal and ventral surfaces; canals contain a nearly continuous row of sensory neuromasts along… 
Sensory Systems in Sawfishes. 2. The Lateral Line
TLDR
Lateral line canals located between the mouth and the nostrils are non-pored in all 4 species of sawfish, and this region is hypothesized to perceive stimuli caused by direct contact with prey before ingestion.
Morphological structure and peripheral innervation of the lateral line system in the Siberian sturgeon (Acipenser baerii).
TLDR
The epidermal lateral line system of the Siberian sturgeon, which consists of mechanoreceptive neuromasts, ampullae and the electroreceptive organ, is studied to present new information concerning the peripheral innervation of lateral line receptors in sturgeons.
Morphological comparison of the ampullae of Lorenzini of three sympatric benthic rays.
TLDR
The morphology of the electrosensory system of three species of benthic rays, including Neotrygon trigonoides, Hemitrygon fluviorum and Maculabatis toshi, was investigated and the luminally extended chassis of supportive cells protruding dramatically into the ampullary lumen had not previously been documented for any elasmobranch species.
Description of the mechanoreceptive lateral line and electroreceptive ampullary systems in the freshwater whipray, Himantura dalyensis
TLDR
The results suggest that H. dalyensis is euryhaline, with sensory systems adapted similarly to those described in marine and estuarine species, and a mechanotactile function is suggested.
Ultrastructure of the ampullae of Lorenzini of Aptychotrema rostrata (Rhinobatidae)
TLDR
The ultrastructural characteristics of the ampullae of Lorenzini in Aptychotrema rostrata are very similar to those of other elasmobranch species that use electroreception for foraging.
Sensory Systems in Sawfishes. 1. The Ampullae of Lorenzini
TLDR
The high densities of pores along the rostrum combined with the low densities around the mouth could indicate that sawfish use their roStrum to stun their prey before ingesting it, but this hypothesis remains to be tested.
Microscopic aspects of electrosensory system on the partially euryhaline lesser guitarfish.
TLDR
The number of alveoli per ampullae was similar to that found in euryhaline elasmobranchs species, suggesting that the morphological organization in Z. brevirostris is linked to its possible evolutionary transitory position among batoids.
The mechanosensory lateral line system in two species of wobbegong shark (Orectolobidae)
TLDR
The study provides evidence that the MLL system of wobbegong sharks is well adapted for their rather unique feeding mode and benthic lifestyle.
Electroreceptive and Mechanoreceptive Anatomical Specialisations in the Epaulette Shark (Hemiscyllium ocellatum)
TLDR
The anatomical basis for future behavioural studies on electroreception and mechanoreception in epaulette sharks is provided, as well as supporting evidence that the electroreceptive ampullary system is specialised to provide behaviourally relevant stimuli.
The comparative morphology of pit organs in elasmobranchs
TLDR
The morphology of pit organs was investigated by scanning electron microscopy in six shark and three ray species and contained typical lateral line hair cells with apical stereovilli of different lengths arranged in an “organ‐pipe” configuration.

Morphology of the mechanosensory lateral line system in elasmobranch fishes: ecological and behavioral considerations
TLDR
Pored canals on the dorsal body and tail of elasmobranchs are best positioned to detect water movements across the body surface generated by currents, predators, conspecifics, or distortions in the animal's flow field while swimming.

Test of the mechanotactile hypothesis: neuromast morphology and response dynamics of mechanosensory lateral line primary afferents in the stingray
TLDR
These low frequency, tactile response properties support the hypothesis that the stingray's non-pored ventral lateral line functions as a mechanotactile receptor subsystem used to guide small benthic invertebrates to the ventrally positioned mouth.
The Lateral Line in Fish: Structure, Function, and Role in Behavior
TLDR
The role of the lateral line in the feeding, defensive, schooling, reproductive, and parental behavior of fish is considered in detail, and the responses of fish to the water current, their orientation, and ways of hydrodynamic camouflage are reviewed.
Structural and Functional Organization of the Lateral Line System of Sharks
TLDR
Current anatomical, electro-physiological and behavioral evidence indicates that the ampullae are organized to respond to very weak DC and low frequency AC electric fields that originate from external sources in the environment and that this information is used in the detection of prey.
The structure of the ampullae of lorenzini in Dasyatis garouaensis and its implications on the evolution of freshwater electroreceptive systems
The peripheral electroreceptive system of the African freshwater stingray, Dasyatis garouaensis, consists of numerous tubules, each originating as a minute cutaneous pore and terminating within the
Velocity- and acceleration-sensitive units in the trunk lateral line of the trout.
TLDR
It has been concluded that the fibers responding (< or = 40 Hz) to water velocity innervate SNs and that the fiber responses to water acceleration innervates CNs are similar to that of other species.

A comparison of the ampullae of Lorenzini among 40 species of skates (Rajoidei) demonstrates a close relationship between inferred electroreceptive capabilities and feeding mechanisms. Three general
Notes on the Gross Functional Morphology of the Ampullary System in Two Similar Species of Skates, Raja erinacea and R. ocellata
TLDR
Ventral pore densities indicate a greater acuity in the electroreceptive system in R. erinacea, and the possibility of this array of pores being useful in the identification of these two skates was also considered.
