Rodlet cells occurred in the posterior intestine of embryos and neonates of the swordtail Xiphophorus nigrensis, its hybrids with Xiphophorus pygmaeus and in the platyfish Xiphophorus maculatus. This is the first observation of these enigmatic cells in a viviparous teleost prior to birth. This finding lends support to the endogenous tenet regarding the origin of this cell.
