ABSTRACT The aesthetasc sensilla of the mysid Lophogaster typicus are distributed on the lateral flagellum of the antennules (first antennae). They essentially conform to the typical aesthetasc structure. Compared to aesthetascs described in other crustaceans, there are divergences in this structure: there is only 1 outer dendritic segment per sensory cell, and the outer part of the hair is flattened in Lophogaster. In males, the lateral flagella also carry a varying number of slender sensilla, located between the aesthetascs. The male-specific sensilla are innervated by monoand biciliary sensory neurons. The phylogenetic implications of the morphology and distribution patterns of the aesthetascs and male-specific sensilla are considered.
