Abstract

The organization of the fiber layer in the retinas of fishes belonging to the suborder Osteoglossoidei appears to be unique amongst bony fishes. The intraretinal pattern of ganglion cell axons is described for one of the species (Pantodon buchholzi). The pattern is unusually linear rather than radial and its organization conforms to a remarkable falciform process.
