ABSTRACT Seven different types of neurosecretory granules have been observed in the axon terminals of the sinus gland of the adult female lobster Homarus gammarus. They were discriminated through morphometrical and morphological criteria such as size, shape, frequency of occurrence, electron density, and axon-matrix density. Each size distribution followed a single Gaussian-type distribution. Each axon terminal contained I type of granule. The mean granule diameter ranged from 50 nm (type 1) to 161 nm (type 7). Type 6 and type I axon terminals were, respectively, the most and least frequent. An immunopositive reaction against an anti-Homarus americanus CHH was detected in the 2 largest types of granules: type 6 (mean diameter, 128 nm) and type 7 (mean diameter, 161 nm).
