Chorion microstructure for identifying five fish eggs of Apogonidae
Abstract:The chorion microstructure of the eggs of apogonids including Apogon lateralis, A. aureus, A. nitidus, A. cookii and A. guamensis was studied by scanning electron microscopy. In Apogonidae, egg chorion microstructures, especially those in the micropyle region, are useful characters for egg identification.
