The chorioid of the stingaree Dasyatis sabina contains large numbers of melanocytes and guanophores, the latter forming an oriented reflecting layer on the inner surface . The crystals contained in these cells have been chemically analyzed and consist of guanine (Nicol and Van Baalen, 1969) . At deeper levels both kinds of cells are commingled, generally preserving their separate identities . Examining electron micrographs of these cells, however, we found several instances in which guanine… CONTINUE READING
