In this work we extend our microichthyological research to emphasize the morphology of jaw teeth, pharyngeal teeth
, gill rakers and their bony cores in flatfishes.
We recorded the presence of fish by identifying scales, otoliths, and pharyngeal teeth
in the sample.
of the Freshwater Drum (Aplodinotus grunniens) a predator of the Zebra Mussel (Dreissena polymorpha).
The passage of food is also enhanced by the disposition of oral and pharyngeal teeth
pecosensis, its forward-facing mouth, raptorial pharyngeal teeth
, and habitat associations suggest it feeds in fluvial habitats (Hubbs, 1941; Hatch et al.
These masses are covered with small pointed pharyngeal teeth
that are angled back toward the stomach.
So fish that have fewer oral teeth also have fewer pharyngeal teeth
Dorsal fin rays, the vertebrate film and pharyngeal teeth
72 f, g) tentatively assigned upper and lower pharyngeal plates, premaxillae, and isolated pharyngeal teeth
Order Cypriniformes Family Cyprinidae (Minnows) Cyprinidae, genus undetermined ROM 43684, 43685 incomplete pharyngeal arch; 43652, 43686- 43691 pharyngeal teeth
Hence in a visual feeder such as the largemouth bass, gustatory signals affecting the final swallowing of suitable prey may be provided by taste buds co-located with the pharyngeal teeth
that crush and otherwise damage prey organisms prior to swallowing.
Classification of the remaining fish from the Lost Ponds site revealed little misclassification of gynogens and sexual progenitors when the actual classifications, based on pharyngeal teeth
and intestinal characteristics, were compared to the classifications based on the DFA (Table 5).
