It passes dorsally
and ventrally by rounded corners into the dorsal and lateral margins.
The name refers to the dorsally
curved tail tip in females.
With the limb supported dorsally
to the PIL, we observed the superficial flexor tendon (SDFT) and the proximal origin of the deep digital flexor tendon (PODDFT), surrounded by the carpal sheath (CS), in the carpal tunnel (CT), both in cross-sectional and longitudinal sections, where muscle bundles could be observed.
Caption: FIGURE 1: Magnetic resonance images of the distal metatarsals showing an upside-down bulbous-shaped mass with low-signal intensity in Tl-weighted (a), T2-weighted (b), and short-tau inversion recovery image (c) extending dorsally
between the second and third metatarsal heads.
These parapophyses are more dorsally
placed and in the middle of the lateral margin of the centrum in the posterior cervical vertebrae.
Abdomen yellowish-grey, with lateral brownish longitudinal stripes dorsally
and median brown stripe ventrally (Figs 69-71).
The body consists of eleven segments in addition to head, the body dorsally
with 26 plates and densely covered with yellowish back-warding setae dorsally
and laterally, the first three dorsal plates are slightly bilobed while the other plates are oblong and variable in width; head is moderate in size and triangle, bearing a minute antennae and a mouthpart ventrally which is located in a triangular space.
Yellowish white shaded with gray dorsally
on extensive pattern (Fig.
6): yellow, finely speckled with reddish brown dots; a series of 15 faint, close-set, curving, orangish bars on mid-side of body to caudal peduncle; head yellow, less densely speckled with reddish brown dots; white dorsally
on snout and interorbital, narrowing onto nape; a narrow reddish brown stripe on side of snout and extending, slightly broader, posterior to eye; orbit with a narrow orange margin; median and pelvic fins translucent bluish white, the dorsal fins finely stippled with brown, the caudal with blue dots on rays and an orange-yellow spot of about pupil diameter dorsally
at base of fin.
Head whitish green; body pale green with some black, gray, and white spots that correspond to microscopic setae, and a brown band dorsally
Double labelling with Tuj1 and HuC/D revealed one population that was located along the floor plate (Figures 1(h), 1(j), and 1(k), arrow), another population that was located more dorsally
(Figures 1(j) and 1(k), unfilled arrowhead), and the rostrally located scattered neurones (Figure 1(h), unfilled arrow).
The heads of the females are dorsally
located; however, the caudal peduncle of the male population is located dorsally
than those of the female S.
