1.8 mm Preflexion Larva of Matsubarichthys inusitatus

1.8mm long preflexion larva of a Matsubara's Velvetfish, Matsubarichthys inusitatus.(I.26205-001). In this speciment the thick skin partially obscures the myomeres, and the illustrated myomeres are approximate. Diagonal lines indicate the gill exhalent opening. Broken lines are branchiostegal rays. Pectoral-fin pigment has been omitted.
