Abstract

Putative mechanoreceptor neurons in the cuticularized epithelium of the suckers of the squid Lolliguncula hrevis, were investigated using light and electron microscope techniques. These neurons were found to have a multipolar shape, thick unbranched axon, glial cell ensheathment, and accessory nerve fiber innervation. The need for electrophysiological and/or behavioral studies on these putative mechanoreceptors is emphasized.
