ABSTRACT Each gill rachis of Nephrops norvegicus bears numerous spines along its length. These are of two types, large and small; the first rises directly from the gill axis, while the second has a small rim around the base. The first type is not innervated, but the second type internally carries 3 dendrites enclosed in a complex sheath which extends up into the lumen of the spine. The sheath is formed by thin processes of at least 15 enveloping cells and the whole is surrounded by extracellular material forming a caplike structure. Only 1 sensory cell body was detected (though others may be as yet unrecognized) at the base of the sheath and is characterized by the presence of numerous dense vesicles and granules and a single basal body. The cuticle of the socket and cone of the spine displays an unusual structure. It is proposed that these spines may form a gaseous (possibly 0,) detection system.
