The structure and cell types of the epidermal lines that are found on the surface of the head and arms of Sepia officinalis and Loligo vulgaris, were investigated by light- and transmission electron microscopy. The lines consist of ciliated cells and non-ciliated, accessory cells. The axon of the ciliated cell and the ultrastructure of the latter indicate that this element is sensory; therefore, the epidermal lines of cephalopods may be regarded as a type of sensory organ.
