Ampullary pore distribution of Galeus melastomus and Etmopterus spinax: possible relations with predatory lifestyle and habitat

  • Carla Jayne Louise Atkinson (a1) and Massimiliano Bottaro (a2)

The number and distribution of ampullary pores present on the blackmouth catshark, Galeus melastomus and the velvet belly dogfish, Etmopterus spinax do not differ with the size/maturity or gender of the specimen and were found to be related to prey preference.
