Abstract

Nucleus rostrolateralis, a newly identified nucleus, has been found to date in only three species of ray-finned fishes, two of which are osteoglossomorphs. It is relatively large and well developed in only one of the osteoglossomorphs, Pantodon buchholzi, in which it receives a relatively sparse, primarily contralateral, input from the retina. The present report describes a relatively intense, bilateral projection from the optic tectum to nucleus rostrolateralis.
