The pattern of FMRFamide and serotonin immunoreactive elements in the nervous system of Aspidogaster conchicola K. Baer, 1827 (Aspidogastrea, Aspidogastridae)

BELGIAN JOURNAL OF ZOOLOGY, 140(S):133-136.

The patterns of the neuropeptide FMRFamide and serotonin (5-HT) immunoreactive ( IR) elements in the nervous system of Aspidogaster conchicola ( Aspidogastrea, Aspidogastridae) are described using immunocytochemistry and confocal scanning laser microscopy. Both FMRFamid and 5-HT immunoreactivities occur in the bilobed brain, the three pairs of longitudinal nerve cords and many transverse commissures. The adhesive disc is strongly innervated by FMRFamide-IR nerve fibres. Many 5-HT-IR neurones were observed on the reproductive organs.
