According to Munk (1999) different stages in the ontogenetic development of the escal light gland have been studied in a few species. This light gland develops from an epidermal invagination of a bulbshaped escal primordium.

It is not known how the symbiotic bacteria infect the light organ and the role they play in its d ­ evelopment.

12 The blinking rates of two Photoblepharon steinitzi kept together or in isolation: A. The blinking rates of two individuals monitored at 15 min intervals prior and following partition removal (upward arrow); B. The blinking rates of two individuals monitored at 15 min intervals prior and following partition introduction (downward arrow). ) Laboratory studies have contributed to our under­standing of the exchange of signals between interacting P. Steinitzi. Morin et al. (1975) reported of two fish that were placed into a­ djacent aquaria, separated by an opaque partition.

However, Munk (2000) stressed that a definite proof of functional continuity of the blood systems requires the injection of a low viscocity medium into the female and its detection in the male. Indirect proof of nutrient transfer from female to male is the male dramatic growth following attachment compared with the size of free living males, which possess jaws unsuitable for prey capture and an undeveloped alimentary system. 15 Ontogeny and sexual dimorphism of Ceratias holboelli.
