Structure of the head
Head anatomy of Aplocheilus lineatus. (A)The killifish hunts with its head immediately below and parallel with the surface of the water, maximizing its sensitivity to capillary waves. Scale bar, 10mm. (B)The array of specialized neuromasts occurs on the fish's flattened head between the eyes and behind the prominent semicircular lip. (C)In a fluorescence micrograph, labeling with a red fluorophore concentrated by hair cells reveals the positions of the largest 16 of the 18 neuromasts. Scale bar, 5mm. (D)Superposition of the previous two images reveals the position of the neuromasts on the dorsal surface of the head.
