Stimulation tests were conducted at FRC and with four surface electrodes placed over the upper-thoracic muscles from the axilla to near the sternum and from the first to the fifth interspaces.
In the first two animals, these electrodes were inserted along the midaxillary line, including 1 cm caudal to the 13th rib and 12th, 10th, and 8th interspaces; in the last three animals, the implantations were at the same interspaces but the three rostral electrodes were implanted 4 cm dorsal to the midaxillary line (Figure 1).
colubrinus tip, well in advance of end of dorsal fin; (Boddaert) body overlain with 25-35 black or brown rings (Indo-Pacific) or saddles, separated by white or pale interspaces which are equal to or wider than the darker rings; body extremely elongate, its depth 50- 70 times in total length 2b.
The axial ribs have broader interspaces and are less opisthocline.
Ribs not equidistant; interspaces much broader than ribs.
With the patient in the sitting, flexed position, an 8 cm 18 gauge Tuohy needle was used to locate the epidural space at a lumbar interspace that was thought to be L3/4.
Identification of the interspace used for neuraxial anaesthesia is notoriously unreliable (18).
Medium-sized Estlandia with 4-5 costae per 5 mm at 5 mm anterior to umbo, and along anterior margin, separated by interspaces two to three times width of costae; concentric filae forming chain-like crests on top of ribs; spondylium wide and relatively short; subperipheral rims absent from both valves.
Grass and forb species richness, diversity and evenness beneath Prosopis glandulosa canopies and in herb-dominated interspaces on sites with light (n = 2) and dense (n = 2) woody plant canopy cover on the Chaparral Wildlife Management Area, Dimmit and LaSalle Counties, Texas, 1999.
Pattern features quantified include width of anteriormost parts of black paravertebral neck stripes (number of longitudinal scale rows), degree of constriction of body blotches on posterior fourth of body compared to length of pale interspaces (counts of scales in vertebral row), and numbers of body and tail blotches.
Urochloa ciliatissima appeared to prefer direct sunlight and had a low tolerance for shade, as it was almost always encountered in the herb-dominated interspace.
The dark band below the eye (formed by the interspace between the yellow or reddish-orange spots on the cheek) is narrow in material from the north Pacific (extreme at Guam and Enewetak) and broadest in specimens from the Great Barrier Reef and Coral Sea.
