Summary

The investigation of the taste buds in the tongue of the neotene Mexican axolotl (Siredon mexicanum) by light and electron microscopy demonstrates 4 different cell types: 1) R-cells, marginal cells of less differentiated character. 2) G-cells, granulated cells in basal position. 3) Cells of type A with fibrills, vesicular elements, and dark bodies, showing supporting and secretory function. 4) Cells of type B with an agranular endoplasmic reticulum in stripe like arrangement, supposed to be receptor cells.
