Argyrophil cells were revealed in the proximal pars distalis of the hypophysis in the rainbow trout (Salmo irideus). For the demonstration of the cells a new silver technique was used. Simultaneously with the argyrophil cells, an argyrophil fibrillar structure-which is supposed to be functional in the process of nuclear amitosis-was shown in cells of the pars intermedia and of the proximal pars distalis. The copper sulphate-silver protein technique can be combined with azan or aldehyde-fuchsin with very good results for remaining adenohypophysial cell types or for neurosecretory fibres. A complete histological picture of the adeno (and neuro-)hypophysis is thus obtained.
