Abstract : The luminal surface of the Aplysia statocyst receptor cells is covered with many (approximately 700) true cilia, as shown by light and by transmission and scanning electron microscopy. The cilia have a 9 + 2 arrangement of internal filaments and are in intimate contact with the statoconia. There are 600-1000 statoconia, 6-20 micrometers in diameter, in each statocyst.
