Coronal sections of the vomeronasal organ of adult agouti (Dasyprocta cristata), shown at levels A) within the rostral half; B) the approximate midpoint, and C) near the caudalmost limit of vomeronasal neuroepithelium (vne; * = lumen). D-F and inset, increasing magnifications of A. The inset of F reveals faintly stained rows of nuclei (arrows) in the vne. Gomori trichrome stain (bone, stained red or green; cartilage, light green; vne is atypically stained red in this specimen). sc, septal cartilage; vnc, vomeronasal cartilage; vs, venous sinuses. v, vomer. Scale bars: A–C, 0.5 mm; D, 200 µm; E, 100 µm; F, 20 µm, inset, 10 µm.
