part comprising the posterior two thirds is wider than the anterior one. The dorsal surface of the anterior one third was found to be composed of an almost smooth surface, and the dorsal surface of the middle one third was entirely covered with scale-like papillae. The dorsal surface of the posterior one third had transverse ridges. At higher magnifications, the epithelial cell surface of the anterior bifurcate portion revealed widely distributed microridges and cell marginal thickening. The… CONTINUE READING
