The eye blink reflex, vibrissae
movement, and orientation of the vibrissae
relative to the rostrocaudal axis of the animal were measured.
Its relatively small head, moderate vibrissae
, blunt claws, and small digital pads are indicative of poor climbing ability.
appears that the ear and the vibrissae
may have evolved to
balteata (Lamb, 1917) and to Cogan's undescribed "species A", in that it shares the additional seta-like vibrissae
rattus in having a tufted tail, longer ears, longer vibrissae
, and longer limb segments.
Transplantation of olfactory mucosa minimizes axonal branching and promotes the recovery of vibrissae
motor performance after facial nerve repair in rats.
9 length of frons; posterior orbital seta moderately strong, slightly shorter than outer vertical seta; flagellomere 1 yellow pruinose basally and along posterior margin, dark grey pruinose centrally and on anterior margin, arista with 10 or 11 long dorsal branches and 4 ventral branches in addition to terminal fork; gena narrow, eye height/genal height ratio: 12:1 (HT), silver pruinose, slightly darker beyond basal angle; vibrissae
strongly developed; palpus pale brown.
3) The rarity of this disease can be explained by the protective functions provided by the ciliary action of the nasal mucosa, the bactericidal properties of the nasal secretions, and the protective mechanisms of the nasal vibrissae
7 length of frons; posterior orbital seta moderately strong, marginally longer than outer vertical seta; postocellar setae markedly shorter than outer vertical seta; flagellomere 1 yellow pruinose basally, darker in apical half, slightly silver-grey pruinose, just over ca twice as long as wide, apex bluntly rounded, arista with 3-5 dorsal and 3 or 4 ventral branches in addition to terminal fork; vibrissae
weak; gena narrow, eye height/genal height ratio: 9:1 (n = 1, N-T); palpus brown, brown microtrichose.
