The pattern of innervation on individual iliotibialis muscle fibres from axolotl (Ambystoma mexicanum) has been investigated histologically and elctrophysiologically. These polyneural fibres were found to be innervated on average at five end plate sites. The sites were distributed irregularly along each fibre. Average end plate length was found to be approxiamtely 70 μm. Most end plates were separated by less than 1000 μm; 26% by less than 150 μm; the average separation was 516 μm.
