The inner ear of the skate, Raja ocellata, was examined by scanning electron microscopy. The otolithic membranes have a gelatinous component and an endogenous class of otoconia. Cupulae are reticulate in form. The morphology and polarization of sensory cell hair bundles are described for the various regions of the labyrinth, and are compared with published observations on other species. In the otolithic maculae, the more centrally located receptor cells generally have longer stereocilia than… CONTINUE READING
