Ultrastructure and functional morphology of glandular setae and distal claws of cephalic appendages of Speleonectes tanumekes (Crustacea: Remipedia).

Terminal pores on crustacean setae are commonly associated with chemoreception. In this study we present an exception to that association with the description of glandular setae on maxillulary and maxillary endites of the remipede Speleonectes tanumekes. This introduces a function associated with crustacean setae beyond the general functions currently… CONTINUE READING
