Structure and development of hair cells in vestibular sensory organs of the larval bullfrog were examined with scanning electron microscopy. The larval vestibular sensory epithelia resembled those of the adult frog. Based on morphology of the ciliary tufts, seven hair cell types were identified. One of them, the type A hair cell, appears to be the morphogenetic precursor of other hair cell types. The size of the stereocilia of type A hair cells is comparable to the surrounding microvilli.
