  • We conducted anatomical and histological observations of the gonads in the self-fertilizing mangrove killifish, Kryptolebias marmoratus to investigate the self-fertilizing mechanism of this species. The gonad has a bilobed structure. The elongated gonadal lumen (GL) along the dorsal surface of the gonad connects to the common genital sinus. The elongate testicular region is closely attached to the GL. Among the ovulated eggs in the GL, those in the anterior part of the GL have micropyles but no… CONTINUE READING
