Abstract

An unusual morphologic arrangement of interrenal and chromaffin tissues has been observed in two families of teleost fishes. In most teleosts in which these cell types occur together in association with the postcardinal veins and their branches, the chromaffin cells are located between the lumen of the vein and the interrenal cells. This typical relationship is reversed in some of the Labridae and Scaridae.
