Scanning electron microscopy reveals that the flat tongue of Platemys pallidipectoris has shallow grooves and no lingual papillae. The surface of the tongue is covered with dome-shaped bulges, each corresponding to a single cell. Short microvilli are distributed over the cell surface. Light microscopy shows a stratified cuboidal epithelium with an underlying strong connective tissue. Transmission electron microscopy indicates four layers. The basal cells of the epithelium are electron… CONTINUE READING
