Testis and ovary structure was examined histologically in seven of the 19 species in the three tribes of the teleost fish family Phallostethidae, series Atherinomorpha. These diminutive species have testes in which spermatogonia are restricted to the distal ends of lobules, a diagnostic character of atherinomorphs. Sperm in the ovarian lumen and chorionic attachment filaments on eggs confirms observations that phallostethids are internally fertilizing and lay fertilized eggs. The immense number… CONTINUE READING
