Definition of Term

branchiostegal counts
(English) The anterior branchiostegal rays may be small and bound tightly together, necessitating the use of a sharp probe to locate each one. Flexing the head relative to the vertebral column to free the gill membranes from the breast often makes the count easier. (See also: branchiostegal rays, branchial)
dénombrement des branchiostèges
(French) Les rayons antérieurs branchiostèges peuvent être petits et groupés ensemble, ce qui nécessite l'usage d'une sonde tranchante pour les différentier. Une flexion de la tête par rapport à la colonne vertébrale libère les membranes de la lamelle de la poitrine et rend le comptage plus facile. (See also: branchiostegal rays, branchial)
