Citation: Lanzing WJR. 1967. A possible relation between the occurrence of a dendritic organ and the distribution of the Plotosidae (Cypriniformes). Pac Sci 21(4): 498-502.
Abstract: Three marine species of Plotosidae are found along the coastlines of
the Indian and Pacific oceans, but the other 25 species occur exclusively in the
Australian region. The majority of the Plotosidae are freshwater inhabitants, some
of which are indigenous to both Australia and New Guinea. The marine members
of the family and two freshwater members possess a dendritic organ. It is suggested
that this organ has an osmoregulatory function.
