This is the first report on innervation of the crustacean androgenic gland (AG). This kind of innervation might be typical of species in which the AG and the oviduct have the same origin. The AG of Sphaeroma serratum becomes totally functional just before the puberal moult. We suggest that androgenic hormone may be packed in dense granules and released by exocytosis. The negative control of the AG by neurohormones is also discussed.
