Nuclei in the subrhabdomeric layer ceaselessly pass through the basal lamina into the inner segment with development (Plate 1 and Plate 6-32), become a little slender than those of the nuclei in inner segment cells, and have very electron-dense nucleoplasm with many patches of heterochromatin (Plate 6-32).
